Wire Taps: Victor Robles, Juan Soto on BA Top 100; Nationals need to re-sign Mike Rizzo; Sammy Solis concerned with health

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news and make sure you’re up to date on the latest from the nation’s capital...

MLB: Washington Nationals-Spring Training Media Day Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

All the Washington Nationals links that are fit to link. All in one place for your convenience...

Juan Soto, Victor Robles only Nats on Baseball America's Top 100 prospects
The Dominican duo that will soon roam the outfield for Washington together are the only players wearing the Curly W on the list, though Carter Kieboom could make his way through sooner or later. The pitching, on the other hand... oof.

The Nationals' wait to re-sign Mike Rizzo is going to kill them in the long run
If the Nats don't act on Rizzo's contract quickly, he could pretty quickly take over any MLB team he so pleases -- so the Nationals should give him what he deserves, now, before he runs out the door and takes the Nats' chances with him.

Sammy Solis concerned with staying healthy in 2018
Aside from Sean Doolittle, the Nats don't have a lefty that they can truly anchor their bullpen on. Sammy Solis wants to be that guy for the Nats -- but to do so, he needs to stay healthy.

Robles no. 5, Soto no. 56 on BA Top 100
Another outstanding talent that you'll be hearing about soon: Luis Garcia, who hit .302 in 49 games in the GCL.

NL East Notes

Baseball America drops Phillies prospect Mickey Moniak from top 100 list
The Phillies drafted the outfielder first overall in 2016. He was ranked 17th by Baseball America a year ago. Now, he's off the list.

Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna topped Shohei Ohtani on Baseball America's prospect list
Okay, this scares the living daylights out of me. Someone else actually being good in the NL East? That’s not allowed!

The Mets shouldn't be thinking about Bartolo
Hold off on pulling those Big Sexy T-shirts out of the back of your closet, Mets fans that are for some reason on a Nationals blog.
