Matt Skole draws Jim Thome comparison


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) Nationals infield prospect Matt Skole isn't expected to break camp with the team and probably won't have a long stint in major-league spring training. However, the highly touted prospect, who was limited to just a few games in the minors last season due to an elbow injury, is already making a lasting impression.

"I like Skoley," Nationals manager Matt Williams said, per CSN Washington. "He had a tough break last year. Saw him a little bit in the [Arizona] Fall League. He had just come back, those were his first at-bats. So I anticipate he will look for his timing early this spring, because he really hasn’t played in a year. So it’s gonna be tough for him early.

"He drives the ball the other way well. He can play both corner positions. So I think he’s got a bright future. He reminds me a little bit of Thome, the way that Jim Thome used to hit the other way so well. Skoley does that good. And he takes the ahead-in-the-count fastball, breaking ball, and drives it to his pull side. But he stays on the ball well."

Skole making strides for Nats


(2/18/2013) Nationals prospect Matt Skole was the team's minor league player of the year last season as he batted .291 with 27 home runs, 104 RBI in 119 games between Class A Hagerstown and Potomac. MLB.com reports he has impressed so far in camp by showing up in great shape and improving his footwork at third base. "He has a great eye. He really knows where the ball is," assistant general manager Bob Boone said Monday. "His improvement from the year before to last year, defensively, he really improved at third base. In the Arizona Fall League, he played first base and he likes it. He is going to be a decent defender. I think he is really going to hit. He is a hitter first and the power comes second."
