  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Slides to ninth spot

    Abrams will start at shortstop and bat ninth in Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Moves up to majors

    The Nationals recalled Abrams from Triple-A Rochester on Monday.

    Abrams was assigned to Rochester after being acquired from the Padres earlier this month, but he earned another trip to the big leagues by going 9-for-27 (.333) over his last seven games at the Triple-A level, and he'll get his chance with Luis Garcia out with a groin injury. Abrams didn't play on an everyday basis for the Padres earlier this season, but with the Nationals out of the playoff hunt, he should be a fixture in Washington's lineup the rest of the way.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Call-up imminent

    Abrams will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    The 21-year-old was dealt from the Padres to the Nationals in early August as part of the trade that sent Juan Soto and Josh Bell to San Diego, and Abrams will join the major-league club Monday since Luis Garcia (groin) will require a trip to the injured list. Abrams appeared in 46 big-league games with the Padres earlier in the season, and he slashed .232/.285/.320 with two homers, 16 runs, 11 RBI and a stolen base. He should have plenty of chances to earn at-bats while Garcia is sidelined.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Bound for Washington in Soto deal

    The Nationals acquired Abrams, first baseman/designated hitter Luke Voit, left-hander MacKenzie Gore (elbow), outfielders James Wood and Robert Hassell and right-hander Jarlin Susana from the Padres on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Juan Soto and first baseman Josh Bell, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Abrams recently exhausted his prospect eligibility, but at 22 years old, the lefty-hitting shortstop's developmental timeline fits in well with what could be a lengthy rebuilding effort for the Nationals. Though he's turned in an underwhelming .232/.285/.320 slash line over his 139 plate appearances in the majors with San Diego this season, Abrams' low strikeout rate (19.4 percent) and elite speed bode well for his chances of emerging as an impact big-league player as soon as 2023. He should get the chance to play on an everyday basis at shortstop for the Nationals for the remainder of the 2022 campaign, while Luis Garcia will likely slide over to second or third base to make room for Abrams.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Starting Nats career at Triple-A

    Abrams was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

    While Abrams figures prominently into Washington's long-term plans, he will break into his new organization in the minors. The 21-year-old shortstop hit .314/.364/.507 with seven home runs and 10 steals in 30 games at Triple-A while with San Diego, so he has a chance to hit the ground running with Rochester. If he impresses, he could be up with the big club in the coming weeks.
