2023 Fantasy Outlook
Susana, the youngest player and the prospect with the most variance in the Juan Soto trade, has an uncommon combination of size and stuff for an 18-year-old pitcher. He is already 6-foot-6 and built like an absolute unit. His fastball touched 103 mph last season and sat in the upper-90s while his slider touched 95 mph (per a stadium gun) and sat in the upper-80s. He has an effortless delivery, and while he will undoubtedly add weight in the coming years, he isn't fat, just tall and well put together, so he should be able to keep his body in check. Susana mixes in a curveball and changeup that both need plenty of development. He walked 20 in 45 innings (11.2 BB%), so command/control gains are needed, but he isn't in the danger zone given his age and off-the-charts velocity. Susana's stuff is so good that late-inning relief seems like a worst-case scenario if we could turn off pitcher injuries. Read Past Outlooks
RANKS
$Signed a $1.7 million contract with the Padres in January of 2022. Traded to the Nationals in August of 2022.
Bound for Single-A
PWashington Nationals  A
August 23, 2022
The Nationals promoted Susana from the rookie-level Florida Complex League to Single-A Fredericksburg on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
One of six players the Nationals acquired in the blockbuster deal earlier this month that sent Juan Soto and Josh Bell to San Diego, Susana will get his first taste of full-season ball after holding opposing hitters to a .162 average and piling up 53 strikeouts in 34.2 innings of Complex League ball. The 18-year-old right-hander is likely a few years away from reaching the majors, but a fastball that touches the triple digits and an overpowering slider are excellent building blocks that could make him a high-upside starter down the line.
