Matt Skole draws Jim Thome comparison
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals infield prospect Matt Skole isn't expected to break camp with the team and probably won't have a long stint in major-league spring training. However, the highly touted prospect, who was limited to just a few games in the minors last season due to an elbow injury, is already making a lasting impression.

"I like Skoley," Nationals manager Matt Williams said, per CSN Washington. "He had a tough break last year. Saw him a little bit in the [Arizona] Fall League. He had just come back, those were his first at-bats. So I anticipate he will look for his timing early this spring, because he really hasn’t played in a year. So it’s gonna be tough for him early.

"He drives the ball the other way well. He can play both corner positions. So I think he’s got a bright future. He reminds me a little bit of Thome, the way that Jim Thome used to hit the other way so well. Skoley does that good. And he takes the ahead-in-the-count fastball, breaking ball, and drives it to his pull side. But he stays on the ball well."

Matt Skole unlikely to return during regular season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals third base prospect Matt Skole is unlikely to return from April Tommy John surgery during the regular season, MASN Sports reports. However, Nationals director of player development Doug Harris is hopeful Skole will be ready to play in fall or winter ball.

Skole has been participating in "light baseball-related activities," such as one-handed swings and some light throwing.

Matt Skole has fracture in wrist
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

An X-ray has revealed Nationals third-base prospect Matt Skole has a fracture in his wrist.

Skole injured his arm during Friday's game, and was initially placed on the 7-day minor-league disabled list. His injury timetable is still unclear, but he will miss multiple weeks. Skole has emerged as a prospect in the Nationals' system after hitting .292/.425/.555 in 598 plate appearances last season. He jumped three levels last year, ending the season in Double-A. 

The Nationals are set at third, with Ryan Zimmerman and Anthony Rendon in the organization, but Skole has played some first base in the minors.
