The Nationals' roster doesn't have many weak spots heading into the 2013 season, but the front office always keeps an eye on the future. Here are some players in Washington's farm system who could fill key roles in upcoming seasons.
Rendon, Sandy Leon and Nate Karns head to Double-A Harrisburg and Eury Perez to Triple-A Syracuse. The Nats also re-assigned Matt Skole, Will Rhymes and Pat McCoy to minor league camp.
Skole and younger brother Jake, a first-round pick by the Texas Rangers in 2010, share an apartment in the offseason and talk nearly every day during the season.
"A lot of people don't know what the minor league life is like," Matt Skole said Monday morning, the start of his fourth week in major league camp with the Nationals. "A lot of people think you're making tons money and you're going to be playing [in the major leagues] like next year. Nobody knows [fully]. So it's good to talk to him. It's a long season and you have ups and downs."
