Updating a previous report, the Washington Nationals are hesitant to give free-agent 1B Adam LaRoche (Nationals) a third year because one, he might be past his prime making too much money to deal in 2015, and two, the team will most likely have prospect 1B Matthew Skole at first base by then. Skole was the team's Minor League Player of the Year in 2012, splitting time between Class A Hagerstown and Class A Potomac. Skole belted 27 home runs with 104 RBIs last season.
