Nats’ Anthony Rendon named LatinoBaseball’s 2019 Player of the Year — then signs with Angels for $245M

By Robert Dominguez The end of the Bryce Harper era was hardly the baseball apocalypse most Washington Nationals fans feared when the former wunderkind and 2015 National League MVP walked to Philadelphia as a free agent at the start of the 2019 season.
