Rosenthal Metions SF Giants As Suitors For Nationals Desmond

By Bryan Rose

Just a quick blurb by Kenny in his morning column, but interesting to note:

"Desmond, even with his offensive regression, would qualify as an upgrade for teams such as the Twins, Giants and Brewers."

The Nationals are hoping to call up infield prospect Steve Lombardozzi, so moving Ian Desmond becomes a priority if that is indeed the direction they go.

Despite his offensive struggles this season, Desmond posted a very fine .269/10/65 triple slash last year with 17 SB’s with solid defense at the SS position. At only 25, it seems a bit strange the Nationals are looking to move him (if they really are), so they must think quite highly of Lombardozzi if the trigger is pulled.
