A look at the Nationals top 10 picks

As the future of 17-year-old Bryce Harper remains in limbo until likely the final hours of “signing day” Monday night, the Nationals do have other draft picks who deserve some attention. With the Nationals top-ten picks the club took nine college players, one high school student, four pitchers, three shortstops, two outfielders and one catcher. Here’s the list:

1. Bryce Harper | OF | 17 years old | Southern Nevada | Unsigned 
2. Sammy Solis | LHP| 21 years old| San Diego | Unsigned
3. Rick Hague| SS| 21 years old | Rice University| Signed 
4. Andrew Cole | RHP| RHP| 18 years old| High School| Unsigned
5. Jason Martinson | SS | 21 years old | Texas State | Signed
6. Cole Leonida| C |  21 years old | Georgia Tech |Signed 
7. Kevin Keyes | RF| 21 years old | Texas | Signed
8. Matthew Grace | LHP| 21 years old | UCLA | Signed
9. Aaron Barrett | RHP | 22 years old | Mississippi | Signed  
10. Blake Kelso | SS| 21 years old | Houston | Signed

That leaves three of the clubs top four picks to be signed before midnight Monday.
