Nationals Draft Update: Strasburg, Crow, Jenkins
The Nationals aren't concealing that they plan to select Stephen Strasburg
first overall if he stays healthy. The Nats also have the 10th overall pick and MLB.com's Bill Ladson
has a source who says they'll use it to select a second pitcher. The Nats don't expect Aaron Crow
, who they drafted but did not sign last year, to last until the 10th pick, but they could select college righty Chad Jenkins
As Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports writes the Nationals will receive the second overall pick in next year's draft if they fail to sign Strasburg. Since they could very well end up with the league's worst record this year, they could theoretically hold the first two picks of the 2010 draft.
