Trea Turner Makes Baseball America’s All-Rookie Team

Baseball America released their MLB All-Rookie Team, and former NC State standout Trea Turner was named to the team.

2B Trea Turner • Nationals

The Nationals installed Danny Espinosa at shortstop this season to improve their defensive efficiency, but the move blocked Turner, a lifelong shortstop and the organization’s top position prospect. Talent eventually won the day. Turner arrived from Triple-A Syracuse on July 10 with the ability to play two secondary positions: center field (44 starts in the majors) and second base (25 starts). He quickly established himself as a lineup fixture in Washington with his blazing speed and surprising power, and he hits the ball hard consistently enough to maintain a high batting average.
