Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reported that Brady House will be shut down for the remainder of this season, resulting from a back issue that has kept him out since June, 11.

Between the Nats’ trade deadline additions, and Brady House’s injury-shortened campaign, House has slid all the way down to 6th on the Nats prospect rankings. Regardless, his development is still a crucial part of this rebuild.
