Nats Sign 4th Round Pick
H/T to Scott at Yuda's. The Nationals signed 2005 4th round pick, Justin Maxwell, an OF from the University of Maryland. Maxwell is an interesting prospect. The 6'5" 225-lb RH OF has the potential to be a corner OF with 20HR/20SB abilities and solid (if not Gold Glove) defense. But he is definitely injury-prone. It will be interesting to see where he will begin the season in 2006. Whether the Nationals will ease him in at Savannah or challenge him by placing him as high as Harrisburg. I would like to see him start the season at Potomac as a full-time player.
