WASHINGTON – The Instructional League roster of the Nationals includes several members of the 2020 draft class: pitchers Cade Cavalli (first round), Cole Henry (second), Holden Powell (fourth); and Mitchell Parker (fifth); catcher Brady Lindsly (fourth); and infielder Samuel Infante (second).

Also in the 65-player group are non-drafted free agent infielders Quade Tomlin and Jake Boone, who turned down a chance to finish his college career at Princeton to sign with the Nationals.

Both Tomlin and Boone have ties to the Washington franchise: Randy Tomlin, the father of Quade, is a former Major League pitcher who was a minor-league pitching instructor in the Nationals’ system before becoming a high school coach in Virginia.

Quade Tomlin was one of the top high school players in Virginia in 2019 then his 2020 season was cut short by the pandemic.

Boone is the son of former big leaguer Bret and his grandfather is Bob Boone, a former All-Star who has been in the player development office in Washington for several years.

Another Virginia connection to the IL roster in Florida: former Virginia Tech pitcher Zachary Brzykcy, who was also signed as a non-drafted free agent. He is a native of Hickory, N.C. and his grandfather played in the minors in the 1950s.

The Nationals will open at home Oct. 6 against the Marlins. The last game, for now, is slated for Oct. 24, at the Marlins.
