After winning the World Series in 2019, the Nats have been rebuilding ever since. They have finished last in the division for three straight years and are in last place this season.
It was a dark period for the Nats as they lost key players from their 2019 championship, including Anthony Rendon, Max Scherzer, Trey Turner and Juan Soto.
This season has been an improvement. With 57 wins as of the 22nd, the team has already surpassed last year’s win total (55).
The future is also looking good. Baseball America ranked the club’s farm system ninth out of 30 teams.
They used the second overall pick in the draft to select outfielder Dylan Crouse.
The Lerner family, which owns the Nationals, has been trying to sell the club since April. Despite the tumultuous time, the team extended the contracts of its manager and general manager.
Ted Leonsis, who currently owns the Wizards (NBA), Capitals (NHL), and Mystics (WNBA) in the same region, has been touted as a possible buyer.
