Extension Candidate: CJ Abrams
Briefly

The Washington Nationals have not been known for signing contract extensions with their players, but that could be changing. The team recently signed catcher Keibert Ruiz to a $50 million extension that could keep him with the Nationals through the 2032 season. Now, there are suggestions that the team should consider a similar deal for shortstop CJ Abrams. Abrams, a former top prospect, was part of a blockbuster trade that sent Juan Soto to the San Diego Padres in 2022. Despite struggling in his first taste of the majors, Abrams' potential and skills make him a candidate for a long-term deal with the Nationals.
