One prospect in particular that the Nationals seem to be excited about is shortstop CJ Abrams.
And Abrams had himself a big day in St. Louis yesterday, picking up his first career four-hit game.
From then on, he continued his recent outburst.
He’s now hitting .391 in his last six starts.
CJ Abrams has the first 4-hit game of his @MLB career.

Abrams Ignites Hope In D.C.
While the Nationals are well out of postseason contention, Abrams at the very least gives them some hope for the future as they look to play a little spoiler down the stretch.
When you notch your first career four-hit game, that’s something special.
This is the main piece that came back to Washington from the Padres in the Soto deal that the Nats are excited about, and with good reason.
If there was one thing that hadn’t quite come along for Abrams yet, it was his hitting.
But it appears now that his bat is starting to pick up.
His defense and speed were well documented already.
Now, his bat is coming along, and he looks ready to help usher in the next generation of young talent in Washington.
He led the way yesterday as the Nats beat the St. Louis Cardinals by a final of 6-0.
It would be no surprise to anybody around the Nationals to see him get another start at some point in this series at Busch Stadium.NEXT: Nationals Make MLB History With A Surprising Weekend
