Quick Notes: LHP MacKenzie Gore will appear before season end, according to reports
One of the many prospects that the Nationals received in exchange for Juan Soto and Josh Bell at this year's trade deadline was LHP MacKenzie Gore.
Gore made his MLB debut on April 15, 2022, pitching against the defending champion Atlanta Braves. He threw 5+1⁄3 innings while giving up three hits and two runs. He recorded his first career strikeout against Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies with a 96-mile-per-hour (154 km/h) fastball.
However, he has been sidelined due to injury. However, he will be making an appearance for the Washington Nationals before season end, according to MASN's Mark Zuckerman.
Once Gore is ready, the Nationals pitching rotation will look completely different from earlier this year, and the rotation, if they remain healthy, will be interesting to watch over the next few seasons.
