Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Anthony Rendon is making an impression.
VIERA, FLA. — The baseball men running the Washington Nationals know conclusions should not form in one spring training week, but with Anthony Rendon they can’t help themselves. Front-office officials watch his sweet swing and whisper he’ll hit third someday. Scouts watch him field groundballs and declare he could win a Gold Glove. Coaches throw him batting practice and shake their heads.
The Nationals drafted Rendon out of Rice with the sixth overall pick last year, and they assigned him to major league camp because his draft deal stipulated he be placed on the 40-man roster. He will not make the major leagues out of spring training. But based on the early reviews, Rendon, 21, is not long for the minors.
