2022 MLB Power Rankings: Lockout Edition

28. Washington Nationals

At least the Nationals have Juan Soto. An MVP candidate in 2021, when he batted .313 with 29 and 95 RBIs, Soto is trending toward superstardom. However, at the moment, he’s all the Nationals really have when it comes to a consistent presence of success. Unfortunately, he’s not Superman, and can’t win games by himself. Just ask Mike Trout (or Shohei Ohtani) how much one player can contribute to winning. Washington might not reach 97 losses again this coming season, but it won’t be consistently competitive, either.
