Nationals Select Rice SS Rick Hague In Third Round

In the thirs round of the MLB amateur draft, the Washington Nationals have selected Rick Hague, a SS from rice University. In our analysis, we defer to our MLB draft blog, MLB Bonus baby and Andy Seiler, via Nationals Farm Authority.

After a pair of intriguing seasons as the shortstop for the Owls, he headed to play for Team USA last summer. While playing for Team USA, he moved to third base in deference to Christian Colon, and that move showed scouts some intriguing tools at a position he’s likely to play as a pro. His tools are all right around the average category, and it’s only his plus makeup and work ethic that causes him to be projected as a potential starting third baseman at the next level.

While he may not be the knock-your-socks-off prospect that fans have come to expect with the nationals, it appears Hague is destined to have a long and solid MLB career.
