In the fifth round of the First-Year Player Draft, the Nationals selected catcher Spencer Kieboom from Clemson with their fifth-round pick, No. 174 overall.

As a junior in 2012, Kieboom batted .250 with three home runs and 33 RBIs. The year prior, he batted .282, but in 34 fewer at-bats. Kieboom is a strong defensive catcher, as he committed just six errors and posted a .993 fielding percentage in his three years at Clemson.

The Nats’ next pick comes in the fifth round, at No. 204 overall.
