Jake Johansen signed with the Nationals less than 24 hours after they drafted him, a departure from their recent seasons.

The Nationals started a busy day by taking Oklahoma high school third baseman Drew Ward in the third round.

After waiting five hours, the Nationals picked hard-throwing college right-hander Jake Johansen.

The Nationals are out of the top of the draft, but there is one intriguing name to keep an eye on.
