The Potomac Nationals have had tremendous success lining up with their big league parent club just up the road in DC. In 10 seasons, the Potomac franchise has seen the likes of Jordan Zimmermann, Drew Storen, Anthony Rendon, Craig Stammen, Ross Detwiler, Ian Desmond, Danny Espinosa, and others stop over in Woodbridge on their way to Nationals Park. In the 10 years, the Potomac franchise has made 5 playoff appearances, played in the Carolina League championship 4 times, and won 3 league championships-2008, 2010, 2014. In addition, the big Nationals have appreciated having a minor league affiliate so close that they can send their own players down to rehab from injuries. Over the years, people like Jayson Werth, Ivan Rodriguez, Bryce Harper, Wilson Ramos,
So the Nationals, as you can see, are very happy with Potomac. That showed this week when they announced that they have signed a 2-year extension of their player development contract (PDC) with Potomac, going through the 2016 season.
