With the No. 313 overall pick in the 10th round of the 2017 MLB draft, the Washington Nationals Tuesday selected pitcher Trey Turner.

Yes, really.

Already having shortstop Trea Turner, the Nationals used their final selection on Trey Turner of Missouri State University. 

Trey Turner, 20, was 2-0 with a 2.03 ERA last season at Missouri State and made seven appearances out of the bullpen. He turns 21 Wednesday. 

Trea Turner is 23 and has been with the Nationals since 2015. He was drafted in 2014 by the San Diego Padres before being traded to Washington. 

Even though he’s a 10th round pick, let’s hope Trey Turner makes the Nationals roster one day so he and Trea Turner can be teammates.
