Washington Nationals news & notes: CJ Abrams putting together impressive run; Travis Blankenhorn back in majors...

Since being moved to the leadoff spot on July 7,” the Nationals’ PR department wrote in the Game Notes for the second of four with Miami this week in the nation’s capital, “CJ Abrams is hitting .271/.321/.422 with six doubles, a triple, seven homers, 16 RBI[s], nine walks, six hit by pitch, 27 stolen bases, and 32 runs scored.”

It’s been an impressive run for the still-just-22-year-old shortstop, whose 27 stolen bases in the same stretch were, “... the most in Major League Baseball ahead of [the Braves’] Ronald Acuña, Jr. (21).”

“On the season,” they added, “[Abrams] ranks third in the National League with 38 stolen bases.
