Nationals' Blake Perkins: Big day for Low-A Hagerstown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perkins went 4-for-5 with two doubles, four runs scored and an RBI in Low-A Hagerstown's win over Lakewood on Thursday.

The 2015 second-round pick is showing signs of turning his impressive tools into production on the diamond. Perkins fits the mold of the prototypical Nats minor-league center fielder in the Mike Rizzo era, as he has excellent speed and defensive instincts while needing work on the offensive side of the ball, but the 20-year-old switch-hitter is now slashing .286/.361/.367 through 36 games for Hagerstown this season with nine steals in 12 attempts. At 6-foot-1 but only 165 pounds he may never develop much over-the-fence power, but he should be able to sting the ball into the gaps regularly as he matures. In a system that boasts Victor Robles and Andrew Stevenson, Perkins' future path may not take him to Washington if he does eventually crack a 25-man roster, but the organization's No. 15 prospect could move up the rankings quickly if he continues to put things together at the plate.
