NICK SENZEL TEED UP TO BE NATS EVERY-DAY 3RD BASEMAN IN 2024!

By Sam Bush

The Nationals made their one-year deal with former No. 2 overall draft pick Nick Senzel official and they are envisioning a prominent role for the 28-year-old.

Senzel told reporters that manager Dave Martinez told him the expectation is that he’ll play third base every day in 2024.

At the time he agreed to his one-year, $2 million pact with Washington, it was reasonable enough to expect that Senzel might bounce around the diamond, as he’d done throughout his time in Cincinnati.

The Reds began Senzel’s development as a third baseman but began playing him at other positions before long. Eugenio Suarez was locked in as the Reds’ third baseman, and after he turned in a 34-homer, All-Star campaign in 2018, Senzel wound up serving as Cincinnati’s primary center fielder in 2019. Overall, Senzel played all three outfield spots, second base and third base in the big leagues during his time as a Red (plus some briefer looks at shortstop in the minors).
