Is a guy I'd like the Reds to figure out how to acquire.
From BA today:
MAN AMONG BOYS
• Matt Skole, 3b, Nationals: When the Nationals drafted Skole out of Georgia Tech last year in the fifth round, they knew they were getting a player with a mature offensive approach. So as a 22-year-old in the low Class A South Atlantic League it's no surprise that Skole is having success. He's hitting .371/.500/.645 and was a walk machine this week, drawing nine free passes including a five-walk game on Wednesday. Skole will have to show he can do more than just control the strike zone as he moves up the ladder, but it's certainly a valuable skill to possess.
The Nats have Ryan Zimmerman entrenched at 3B for the next several years, and Anthony Rendon in addition. Clearly, Skole is a spare part in that organization.
He bats left handed, plays 3B, and should move quickly through the organization (with a major league ETA of 2015). I wonder what it might take to pry him away from the Nats?
Eventually, he could compete with David Vidal, Henry Rodriguez, Todd Frazier, and perhaps Gabriel Rosa to be the Reds 3B for the latter half of this decade.
