Trea Turner played the first six-and-a-half years of his career with the Washington Nationals and had it not been for their 2021 firesale, his tenure in D.C. would likely have been longer.

Playing his college ball at North Carolina State, Trea Turner was a First Round Pick by the San Diego Padres, who would deal him to the Washington Nationals as the unceremonious, Player to be Named Later in 2015.  He would have 40 At Bats that year for the Nats, and in the season after, he batted .342 in 324 Plate Appearances and was the runner-up for the National League Rookie of the Year to the Dodgers’ Corey Seager.

The Shortstop had a good 2017 (117 Hits with 46 SB), and in 2018, he led the NL in Plate Appearances (740), At Bats (664), and Stolen Bases (43), and he was an effective table-setter for the Nationals.  Turner would swipe 35 Bases with a .298 Batting Average in Washington’s 2019 World Series winning year.  In the COVID-reduced 2020 season, Truner led the NL in Hits (78) and was seventh in MVP voting.

Turner did even better in 2021, winning the Batting Title (.328), while also leading the league in Hits (195), Stolen Bases (32), and was an All-Star for the first time,  That being said, Turner was traded during the year to the Dodgers, ending his stay with the Nationals.  Turner batted an even .300 with Washington with 93 Home Runs, 769 Hits, and 192 Stolen Bases.
