The Nationals held a moment of silence before tonight’s game for 18-year-old Dominican Academy shortstop Yewri Guillen, who passed away this morning of bacterial meningitis.

Guillen was one of 16 international prospects the Nationals agreed to terms with this past February.

The media is scheduled to meet with general manager Mike Rizzo following tonight’s game with the Brewers. 

More information to come.
