One of baseball’s top prospects will be making his big league debut on Monday. According to multiple reports, the Washington Nationals are calling up MLB’s third-ranked prospect James Wood. The 21-year-old outfielder’s first game will come at Nationals Park against the New York Mets.

Wood, who came over to the Nationals from the San Diego Padres as part of the Juan Soto trade, was selected in the second round of the 2021 MLB Draft.
