Anthony Rendon Injury Update: Prospect Expected To Play This Year, According To Report

Just over a month ago Washington Nationals prospect Anthony Rendon injured his ankle running the bases for Class A Potomac. Originally thought to be a strain, it was ultimately determined Rendon suffered a small fracture of the ankle. The team had hoped Rendon could return before the end of the season, and that now appears to be the case.

Via ESPN's Buster Olney:

Rendon was the sixth overall pick in the 2011 draft and is widely considered to be Washington's top prospect behind Bryce Harper.
