Desmond has a career fielding percentage .972, and to put this in perspective on how good he is, Troy Tulowitzki has a career fielding percentage of .973 and the great Ozzie Smith's career fielding percentage is .966. Tulowitzki may have a little more power and hit for better average, but Desmond has been largely able to keep from being injured for long periods of time. Desmond alongside veteran third basemen Ryan Zimmerman then sprinkling in many new upcoming stars, such as Strasburg, Harper, and Rendon, there is a very bright future for the Washington Nationals.
