Carter Kieboom Newsbeat

Carter Kieboom believes he’s prepared to compete for Nationals’ third base job

And now, for a palate cleanser after the news of the day….

When Carter Kieboom made it to the majors, he announced his presence with authority.

The Nationals’ top prospect batted ninth against the San Diego Padres on April 26 for his MLB debut. Washington trailed 3-2 heading into the bottom of the eighth. Kieboom, just 21 years old, took a hanging slider and hit it to straightaway center field for a game-tying home run.

It was an incredible moment, one Kieboom and his family will look back on and remember for the rest of their lives. However, the game caught up to him quickly. Washington was forced to send him back down to the minors after he posted a .491 OPS with four errors in 11 games.

Despite the demotion, Kieboom wasn’t deterred.

As Nationals roster can now expand to 40, Carter Kieboom heads to West Palm Beach

WASHINGTON—When Major League Baseball rosters were able to expand from 25 to 40 on Sept. 1, due to the conclusion of the minor league regular season, one notable name in the Nationals’ organization was not called up.

That would be infielder Carter Kieboom, Washington’s top prospect and MLB Pipeline’s No. 20 overall.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez announced Tuesday the now-22-year-old Kieboom would be heading to Florida instead.

“He’s going to continue to get at-bats,” Martinez said. “We talked about him, and obviously he’s a large part of our future.”

I get that an OPS+ of 23 isn’t much (even with Small Sample Size Playhouse at play), but isn’t sending him into the path of a hurricane a bit harsh?
