  • Nationals' Daylen Lile: Jumps to High-A

    Lile was promoted Tuesday to HIgh-A Wilmington, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Lile did not play in 2022 as he recovered from Tommy John surgery, but he has earned a quick bump to High-A ball after slashing .291/.381/.510 with seven homers, 48 RBI, 21 stolen bases and 49 runs scored in 66 games this season for Single-A Fredericksburg. The young outfielder was selected by the Nationals in the second round of the 2021 First-Year Player Draft out of a Kentucky high school.

  • Nationals' Daylen Lile: Strong full-season debut

    Lile is hitting .297 with a .387 OBP, three home runs, eight steals and a 19.3 percent strikeout rate in 26 games for Single-A Fredericksburg.

    A second-round pick in 2021, Lile missed all of 2022 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Known primarily for his hit tool as an amateur, Lile has shown zero rust after all the missed time. His 8-for-9 success rate on the bases probably oversells his stolen-base upside in the majors, as he is typically listed as an average runner on scouting reports.

  • Nationals' Daylen Lile: Available for camp

    Lile (elbow) is listed as an available reserve outfielder for the Nationals in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Lile won't be a direct substitute for any of Washington's three outfield starters on the day (Alex Call, Derek Hill and Stone Garrett), but his presence on the team's travel squad is an indication that he's healthy for spring training. A 2021 second-round draft pick, the 20-year-old Lile missed the entire the 2022 campaign while recovering from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last March.

  • Nationals' Daylen Lile: On mend from Tommy John surgery

    Lile underwent Tommy John surgery in March, Sam Dykstra of reports.

    With Lile being a position player, it's not a lock that he will miss the entire year, but it seems likely. Selected out of high school with the 47th overall pick in last year's draft, Lile will turn 20 in November. He should be a full-go in 2023.
