Game Of The Week: Nationals’ Drew Ward Lighting Up Carolina League

GOW6

The Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs are known for having two of the youngest clubs in Major League Baseball and it seems that their Farm Systems are still packed with excessive amounts of talent.
The Nationals’ third baseman Drew Ward is one of those players that has been garnering a lot of attention so far this season by organization’s scouts for his dynamic play in the Carolina League.

The twenty-one year old was assigned to the Class A Advanced Potomac Nationals at the start of this season and is hitting .315 in twenty-four games; he has six homers, six doubles and 17 RBIs.

Ward is ranked as the eighth best prospect in the Washington Nationals’ organization entering this season.

He spent last season with Potomac as well, batting .249 with six homers and 47 RBIs; earning him a spot in the Arizona Fall League with the Salt River Rafters.

He has power as a left-handed batter and with time and more at-bats could possible become an even better hitter.

Since being drafted in the third round of the 2013 MLB Draft by the Nationals,  Ward has steadily worked his way up the club’s “ladder”, proving his capability and making a name for himself and also changing positions to third base.
