Jake Alu

25-Year-Old Third Baseman3B
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Alu is already a success story as a 24th-round pick in 2019 who reached the Nationals' 40-man roster, having been added in November. He tallied 40 doubles, 20 home runs and 15 steals while slashing .299/.365/.506 in 567 plate appearances between Double-A and Triple-A last season. Those numbers are impressive, even if he was a little old for those levels at 25. Alu played primarily at third base although he can fill in at second base and left field in a pinch. Third base is wide open in Washington and Alu may get a look as the Nationals evaluate for the future. Alu is a legitimate major-league prospect, one who could play more than expected for a second-division club. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Alu is a nice deep-league sleeper, as he had statistical success at Triple-A and has a pretty clear path to playing time in the majors. Carter Kieboom and Ildemaro Vargas are the top options at third base for the Nationals, so Alu could get a look at the hot corner at some point in 2023. The 25-year-old lefty hitter slashed .323/.372/.553 with 11 home runs, six steals and an 18.2 percent strikeout rate in 59 games at Triple-A.
