Washington Nationals Prospects: B/R's Top 10 Breakdown, Post 2013 Draft

Thanks to a largely successful 2012 season and the signing of closer Rafael Soriano to a two-year, $18 million contract, Washington didn't get its first pick of the 2013 MLB draft until the second round, 68th overall.

However, knowing Nats' general manager Mike Rizzo and scouting director Kris Kline, the low pick didn't much affect their decision-making.

Thus far, some of the Nationals' best 2013 draft picks include RHP Jake Johansen of Dallas Baptist University (68th overall), infielder Drew Ward of Leedey High School (105th overall) and RHP Nicholas Pivetta of New Mexico Junior College (136th overall).

An overview of those selections will be at the end of the slideshow; because the Nats' picks were so late in the draft this year, none of the draftees are likely to shake up the order of the Nats' current top 10 prospects just yet.

The order of these 10 prospects is, of course, subjective to the author and based on a combination of current talent and skill and long-term potential for a future at the major league level.
