For better or worse, we have a full-fledged, new Watchlist for 2022, thanks to an almost-full season and an almost-entire Draft (pay no attention to most of them not playing until mid-August for reasons still not understood or explained).
Alas, the number of players I’ve seen play in person has dropped dramatically (50-70 games to about 10), thanks to the relocation of the Nats closest affiliate from Woodbridge to Fredericksburg. For better or worse, we’re now more reliant on the prospect books (which are heavily influenced by the parent clubs) and secondary sources (Fangraphs, 20/80, etc.) that range in quality and focus.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll create each and edit/revise as best as I can. When a page is done or ready for viewing, I’ll hyperlink it. The last five categories will be essays instead of capsules.
You can visit previous watchlists by clicking on the year. Please note: The site has undergone a few theme changes, which will make some of the older reports less readable: 2021 | 2020 | 2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011
