Washington Nationals’ prospect Cade Cavalli made big strides in 2021; but there’s still work to do...

Cade Cavalli put up a 1.77 ERA, 12 walks, and 71 Ks in seven starts and 40 23 innings pitched at High-A Wilmington in Washington’s system before the Nationals promoted their 2020 1st Round pick to Double-A Harrisburg in mid-June.

Cavalli, 23, made 11 starts at Double-A, with a 2.79 ERA, 35 walks, and 80 Ks in 58 IP, and in advance of his second promotion of the season, big league skipper Davey Martinez talked about the progress he’d seen from the right-hander, who spent the 2020 COVID campaign throwing at the club’s alternate training site with no minor league season.
