A third base prospect in the Washington Nationals system (how discouraging for him), Matt Skole is also the brother of the better-known Jake. While Jake went to Texas in 2010's first round, Matt was drafted by the Washington Nationals in 2011's 5th.
A solid hitter with a plus eye at the plate and a nice-looking power swing that doesn't mess up his timing much, he looked very good at high-A Carolina in 2012, slashing .314./355/.486, which should be enough to get himself a ticket to AA ball this season and Washington's speed-dial thereafter. How he handles the increasingly-ungodly breaking balls in AA will be the bellweather for Skole, but there's no reason to doubt him yet. If he puts together another strong year in the minors, we'll probably see him in September.
