The Nationals had four players in for pre-draft workouts today, including a couple of pitchers they might be looking at with the No. 10 pick.
I’ve only been able to track down three of the names so far, but they are: Kenesaw State right-hander Chad Jenkins, Stanford right-hander Drew Storen and Michael Broad, a Florida high school shortstop who has committed to the University of Miami and is said to want a seven-figure signing bonus to bypass college.
Jenkins and Storen would be the more intriguing possibilites, though. Both are projected to go in the lower half of the first round, and both are college pitchers, which means they fit the description of what the Nats are believed to be looking for at No. 10—a quick-to-the-big-leagues player who will sign relatively close to the slot recommendation. That would give them one pick in the fold while they wait out Stephen Strasburg all summer.
