Stock Up, Stock Down for Nationals' Top 10 Prospects for Week of May 27
Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports
Washington Nationals pitching prospect Matt Purke.

The Washington Nationals had a rough week.

Washington lost three of four to its regional rivals, the Baltimore Orioles, in an interleague home-and-home series before losing two of three to their divisional rivals, the Atlanta Braves.

The Nats are now 28-29 and in second place in the NL East standings, seven games behind the first-place Braves.

The Nationals' farm system provided some positive developments, however. This past week saw the 2013 debut of a prized Nationals' pitching prospect. Meanwhile, in an intriguing but not entirely unforeseen maneuver, a prominent Nationals' position player was promoted in an effort to learn a new position. 

Here is the stock report for the Nationals' top 10 prospects for the week of May 27-June 2 with evaluations for each prospect depending on their performances for the week.

 

Note: Top Prospects according to MLB.com's 2012 Prospect Watch. All statistics updated through June 2 courtesy of MiLB.com unless otherwise noted.
