Cutter Dykstra, Nationals Newest Prospect, Not Looking Like An Impact Player

As we now know, the Tony Plush era in Washington is indeed over, as Nyjer Morgan was traded to the Brewers. They will be getting Cutter Dykstra in return. If that last name sounds familiar to you, its because he is the son of former Phillies star Lenny Dykstra.

Unfortunately for the Nationals, it looks like the apple is falling way too far from the tree, as Cutter is not expected to be a big time prospect, according to Ken Rosenthal:

As unfortunate as that is for the Nationals, it's still is a fair deal for a player like Morgan. Although he could be an impact player for the Nats, at the end of the day he was not an upper echelon player, so you wouldn't expect the Nats to get anything other than a marginal prospect in return.
