Player Outlook
The centerpiece of the Nationals' return for Juan Soto, C.J. Abrams laid the foundation for what could be a long and prosperous MLB career in his first full season with Washington. At 22 years old, Abrams hit 18 homers and stole 47 bases in 151 games, finishing fifth in the majors in the latter category behind Ronald Acuna, Esteury Ruiz, Corbin Carroll and Bobby Witt. Abrams made 71 starts out of the leadoff spot and totaled 83 runs scored. His batting average was .228 or lower in four separate months of the season, and his Statcast page is icy blue, which for some may appear reminiscent of Victor Robles' 2019. No player is a sure thing, but it would be a surprise if Abrams went the way of Robles as Abrams has more speed, more pedigree and more discernible skill already at this stage. Now 23, Abrams will look to build on his 2023 showing as the Nationals' everyday shortstop.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Tallies three hits in loss

    Abrams went 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI in Saturday's extra-inning loss to Philadelphia. Abrams had been in a minor rut coming into Saturday, going 1-for-13 over his previous four games. He broke the skid with his first three-hit performance since April 23 while collecting his first RBI since May 8. Abrams' production has fallen off in May -- he's batting .230 with a 1:14 BB:K this month -- but he's still carrying a solid .271/.330/.494 slash line with seven homers, 21 RBI, 28 runs and eight stolen bases on the season.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Getting rare day off

    Abrams is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. The lefty-hitting Abrams started in both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader and the White Sox are bringing a lefty (Garrett Crochet) to the hill for Wednesday's series finale, so Nationals manager Dave Martinez likely decided that Abrams could benefit from a game off. With Abrams out of the lineup for the first time since April 8, lightly used Rule 5 pick Nasim Nunez will pick up a rare start at shortstop.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Productive in big win

    Abrams went 1-for-3 with two walks, a two-run home run, a second run scored and a stolen base in Monday's 7-2 win over the Marlins. The 23-year-old shortstop was once again the engine of the Nationals' offense from the leadoff spot, as Abrams took Trevor Rogers deep in the third inning then teamed up with Jacob Young for a double steal in the fifth. Abrams has reached base safely in 15 straight games, and on the season he's slashing .297/.377/.634 with seven homers, six stolen bases, 17 RBI and 21 runs in 25 contests.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Nabs fifth steal

    Abrams went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers. The 23-year-old shortstop saw a nine-game hitting streak end on Wednesday, but he wasted no time getting going again. Over his last 14 contests since returning from a minor finger injury, Abrams is slashing .293/.349/.638 with four of his six homers and two of his five steals on the season.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Goes yard again Saturday

    Abrams went 2-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Astros. The shortstop led off the bottom of the first inning by launching Ronel Blanco's first pitch of the afternoon over the fence in right field. Abrams is up to six homers on the season, including three in the last five contests, and Saturday's performance extended his hitting streak to seven games -- a stretch in which he's batting .345 (10-for-29) with a stunning .931 SLG, as nine of the hits (four doubles, two triples, three home runs) have gone for extra bases.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Smacks fifth homer

    Abrams went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers. He drove the second big-league pitch of Landon Knack's career over the fence in right-center field, giving the Nats all the offense they would need as Jake Irvin and the bullpen combined for a shutout. Abrams launched a career-high 18 homers in 2023 but is well ahead of that pace to begin this season, slashing .295/.358/.656 with five home runs, three steals, 10 runs and 11 RBI in 15 games.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Goes deep in win

    Abrams went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, an additional run and a double in Monday's 6-4 victory against the Dodgers. Abrams led off the game with a double, reached third base on a groundout and scored on a Tyler Glasnow wild pitch. He added a solo homer off Tyler Glasnow in the third inning to round out a productive night. Abrams has gone 5-for-13 over his past three games, with all five of his hits during that span going for extra bases. On the season, he has an impressive 1.004 OPS with four homers, three doubles, two triples, 10 RBI, nine runs and three stolen bases over 60 plate appearances.

    Abrams (finger) will participate in baseball drills Monday and hopes to return to the lineup Tuesday against San Francisco, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Abrams won't be available for Monday's series opener, but if all goes well, his absence should be a relatively short one after suffering a bone bruise of his left pinky finger during Friday's contest. The team should have more information on Abrams' availability after going through baseball activities.

    Abrams (finger) remained out of the lineup for Monday's game in San Francisco, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Remains on bench Sunday

    Abrams (finger) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports. The 23-year-old shortstop was scratched from Saturday's lineup due to a bone bruise of his left pinky finger, and he'll sit for the second straight game Sunday.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Day-to-day with bruised finger

    Abrams is considered day-to-day due to a bone bruise of his left pinky finger, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Abrams was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup with an injury that occurred on a slide into second base Friday. Fortunately, it does not appear to be anything that could keep the young shortstop out long. Expect Abrams back in there in a day or two.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Scratched Saturday

    Abrams was scratched from the Nationals' lineup ahead of Saturday's game against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. The Nationals have yet to provide a reason for Abrams' removal, but he could be experiencing problems with his left hand after making a slide into second base during Friday's contest. Nasim Nunez will make his first career big-league start as Abrams' replacement, batting ninth.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Goes deep in loss

    Abrams went 2-for-5 with a solo home run against the Pirates in a loss Thursday. Abrams was the only National to log multiple hits in the contest, and he hit the team's only homer -- a solo shot in the fifth inning. The shortstop has gotten off to a great start this season, slashing .333/.407/.667 with two homers, five RBI, five runs and three steals through six games. His speed remains his biggest asset from a fantasy perspective, but he slugged 18 long balls last year and has enough pop in his bat to exceed that number this season.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Crushes first homer

    Abrams went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Reds. Abrams went deep for the first time this season, hitting a monster 429-foot home run to center off Nick Martinez. The 23-year-old needed 19 games last season before hitting his first homer, so it's encouraging to see him find the bleachers in the Nationals' first series of 2024. Abrams and his team now return to Washington for two home series against the Pirates and Phillies this week.

  • Nationals' CJ Abrams: Home run in first at-bat

    Abrams went 2-for-2 with a solo homer, an RBI single and a stolen base in Friday's loss to Houston. The young shortstop has impressed in spring games thus far, logging four hits and three steals without a strikeout over the course of four games. Abrams' impressive rookie campaign with Washington included him setting the single-season franchise record with 47 steals. The 23-year-old will consistently be hitting leadoff for a less-than-stellar lineup, and he will look to explode as perhaps one of the few bright spots on the Nationals.

    Abrams went 2-for-6 with an RBI, a run and two steals in Sunday's 10-9 win over Atlanta. Abrams finished off 2023 with back-to-back multi-hit efforts and cemented his name in the franchise record books.

Abrams was one of four players this season to hit at least 15 home runs and steal at least 45 bases, joining Ronald Acuna, Corbin Carroll and Bobby Witt.
