2013 Washington Nationals Consensus Top 32 ProspectsPosted: April 1, 2013
I have created a cumulative prospect list for each team based on other (more knowledgeable) peoples’ lists. Each time a prospect appears on a list, he gets a number of points (21 minus his ranking). The prospect with the largest amount of points is ranked first. I will be posting each team once they have been completed by all of my sources. You can find a link to all of the other teams top prospects on the Team Prospects page. Clicking on the links below will take you to the team’s list on each respective site.
Five lists was published much earlier in the offseason before the Nationals acquired A.J. Cole. To account for this, I took his average ranking from the other lists and inserted him into the list that missed him. All other prospects behind him were bumped down one ranking.

The “Change” column describes how the prospect’s status changed from 2012. A positive number means the prospect moved up in the list, while a negative number means he moved down. A prospect’s name is green if he is new to the organization this year.
|3||Lucas Giolito||184||1st Rd Draft|
