  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Swipes sixth bag

    Abrams went 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Padres.

    Facing the team that selected him sixth overall in the 2019 MLB Draft, Abrams made a nuisance of himself from the bottom of the Nationals' order. The walk was a rarity for the 22-year-old shortstop -- his last one came April 23 -- and his inability to control the strike zone continues to limit his production. Through 20 games in May, Abrams is slashing .269/.279/.448 with three of his five homers and three of his six steals on the year.

    Abrams went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Padres.

    The shortstop got the Nationals on the board by taking Yu Darvish deep in the fifth inning. Three of Abrams' five homers on the year have come in his last nine games, a stretch in which he's also banged out three doubles while batting .265 (9-for-34) with a steal, six runs and eight RBI.

    Abrams went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and one steal in Monday's 10-3 win over the Mets.

    Abrams recorded his third straight multi-hit game Monday, and during that stretch, he's hit two home runs and collected five RBI. Across 39 games (142 plate appearances), the shortstop is slashing .258/.305/.417 with four home runs, 22 RBI and 16 runs scored. He's also 5-for-7 in stolen-base attempts. Despite some occasional struggles, Abrams figures to be an everyday player for the Nationals, who are currently in last place in the NL East.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Three hits in win over Cubs

    Abrams went 3-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Cubs.

    The 22-year-old shortstop has been flirting with the Mendoza Line most of the season, but Abrams appears to have a found a groove at the plate. Over his last 15 games, he's slashing .275/.315/.431 with two doubles, two homers, seven runs and nine RBI, solid production from a player who routinely hits near the bottom of one of baseball's weakest lineups.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Smacks go-ahead grand slam

    Abrams went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Thursday's 9-8 loss to the Mets.

    Abrams started out the contest with a pair of groundouts and a strikeout before coming up with the biggest swing of the game, giving the Nationals an 8-7 lead in the eighth frame with a grand slam. The shortstop has been quite productive as of late, having hit two home runs in his last five games while also driving in eight during that span.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Hits three-run homer in win

    Abrams went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Twins.

    Abrams doubled the Nationals' lead to 8-2 with a three-run shot off Simeon Woods Richardson in the seventh inning. It's the first homer of the season for the shortstop and he's brought home eight runs over 19 games and 66 at-bats. Abrams has been shaky over the first three-plus weeks of the season, but his speed (3 steals) has brought glimpses of fantasy hope in that short timeframe.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Flashes wheels Friday

    Abrams went 0-for-2 with a walk, a run scored and two stolen bases in Friday's loss to the Guardians.

    The young shortstop also got on base on a hit-by-pitch and an error by Jose Ramirez, giving him plenty of opportunities to cause some havoc on the basepaths. Abrams has a poor .205/.300/.341 slash line through 13 games to begin the season, but he's now 3-for-4 on steal attempts. The rebuilding Nationals will live with the 22-year-old's growing pains as a hitter.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Triples twice in victory

    Abrams went 3-for-5 with two triples, three RBI and a run scored in Friday's 10-5 victory over Colorado.

    Abrams tripled in two runs in the third inning, and two innings later his second three-bagger scored Lane Thomas to make it a 7-2 game. Over seven games and 25 at-bats, the 22-year-old is slashing .280/.333/.480 with three extra-base hits. The only disappointment so far with Abrams is that he hasn't used his impressive speed to steal a base yet.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Steps out of lineup

    Abrams is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

    Abrams went 0-for-7 and committed three errors in the first two games of the season, and he'll head to the bench for Sunday's series finale. Ildemaro Vargas will take over at shortstop and bat eighth.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Shows nerves Thursday

    Abrams went 0-for-4 with a strikeout while also committing three errors in the field during an Opening Day loss to Atlanta.

    Getting the start at shortstop and batting ninth in the order on his first MLB Opening Day, Abrams' first error could easily have been ruled a hit as it came on a scorching grounder by Ronald Acuna. There was no excuse for Abrams' two airmailed throws later in the game. The Nationals are rebuilding in 2023 and will live with Abrams' growing pains, but the 22-year-old might have a long way to go before he'll be a reliable big-league player -- or a reliable fantasy asset.
