Washington Nationals’ prospect Cade Cavalli will let club know when he’s ready...

Cade Cavalli, 23, and the Washington Nationals’ top pick in the 2020 draft (22nd overall in the 1st Round), spent his first year as a pro throwing at the club’s alternate training site in Fredericksburg, VA without a minor league season for players that year during the COVID pandemic.

In 2021, Cavalli made the most of the return of minor league baseball, working his way up from High-A Wilmington to Triple-A Rochester in the Nats’ system, with a combined 3.36 ERA, 60 walks (4.38 K/9), and 175 strikeouts (12.77 K/9) in 24 starts and 123 1⁄3 IP on the year.
