WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 19: General mananger Mike Rizzo of the Washington Nationals speaks during a press conference before a game against the Baltimore Orioles at Nationals Park on June 19, 2018 in Washington, DC. (Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty Images)Last night at the Winter Meetings in the first ever MLB Draft Lottery, the Washington Nationals were awarded the second overall pick, their highest overall selection since Bryce Harper in 2010.

The Washington Nationals have a history of drafting pitchers with their top overall pick, selecting them from 2017-2020 and 2012-2014. The second overall pick is a great place for Mike Rizzo and his staff to locate it.1 month ago District on Deck
