The Call-Up: Trea Turner


Christopher Crawford and Mike Gianella

The Nationals are both reeling, and not out of the hunt for a playoff spot. Enter Trea Turner.

The situation: The Nationals have been among the most disappointing teams of not just this year, but the past decade. Desperate times call for desperate measures; and Washington will call upon Trea Turner to see if they can rectify the disaster that has been 2015.

Background: Turner was one of the highest-rated juniors coming into the 2014 draft, but a so-so junior season saw his stock slip, and he fell to the Padres with the 13th-overall pick. His stock was quickly reestablished as a professional, as he put up impressive numbers at the lower levels and was a standout out in the Arizona Fall League. He then went on to give an award-winning acting performance as he pretended to be a Padres prospect for eight months, as the player to be named later in the three-team deal that saw Wil Myers end up in San Diego. He’s been just as good since arriving in DC, and was hitting .313 in Triple-A Syracuse before his promotion to the big league club.
