Player Outlook
When he made his major-league debut in August of 2020, just 90 days after his 20th birthday, it sure appeared that Luis Garcia was headed toward a long and prosperous career. It could still happen -- he's still young -- but a lot of the prospect shine has already worn off as he enters his age-24 campaign. Garcia posted a greatly-improved 12.4 strikeout percentage last season, down from 22.3 percent the year before, but he got on base at only a .304 clip and owns a career .295 OBP through his first 1,245 big-league plate appearances. He's not particularly fast, nor does he hit the ball particularly hard, so it's difficult to envision a sudden breakout in 2024. On top of all that, the Nationals aren't guaranteeing that Garcia will be their starting second baseman come Opening Day.

It was the second baseman's second long ball in the last four games and his fifth of the season.

Trey Lipscomb will fill in for Garcia at the keystone.
