Player Outlook
The centerpiece of the Nationals' return for Juan Soto, C.J. Abrams laid the foundation for what could be a long and prosperous MLB career in his first full season with Washington. At 22 years old, Abrams hit 18 homers and stole 47 bases in 151 games, finishing fifth in the majors in the latter category behind Ronald Acuna, Esteury Ruiz, Corbin Carroll and Bobby Witt. Abrams made 71 starts out of the leadoff spot and totaled 83 runs scored. His batting average was .228 or lower in four separate months of the season, and his Statcast page is icy blue, which for some may appear reminiscent of Victor Robles' 2019. No player is a sure thing, but it would be a surprise if Abrams went the way of Robles as Abrams has more speed, more pedigree and more discernible skill already at this stage. Now 23, Abrams will look to build on his 2023 showing as the Nationals' everyday shortstop.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Clubs game-deciding homer

    Abrams went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-5 win at Milwaukee. The 23-year-old entered the contest in a 1-for-19 slump and started off 0-for-4 on Saturday, but he erased a one-run deficit in the ninth inning with a two-run homer off Brewers closer Trevor Megill. Abrams is batting just .183 through 13 games in July, but he still has a .269/.344/.486 slash line for the season to go along with 15 home runs, 48 RBI and 15 steals.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: On base three times in loss

    Abrams went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in Monday's extra-inning loss to the Mets.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Swipes 14th bag

    Abrams went 1-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Rays. The Nationals had only three hits on the afternoon, so while Abrams was busy on the basepaths, his efforts couldn't generate any offense. The 23-year-old shortstop had been slumping heading into June, but he wrapped up the month with a dazzling .373/.464/.663 slash line in 97 plate appearances, adding four of his 13 homers on the season and six of his 14 steals.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Hits leadoff homer Saturday

    Abrams went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, a walk, two total runs and two total RBI in an 8-1 win against the Rays on Saturday.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Homers in loss

    Abrams went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to Atlanta. Abrams broke a scoreless tie in the sixth frame with his leadoff homer against Atlanta starter Reynaldo Lopez.

Abrams reached 10 homers on the campaign with Thursday's blast, but he's slashing a meager .246/.293/.456 through 247 plate appearances.
