  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Out again Tuesday

    Soto (calf) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Philadelphia, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Soto will be on the bench for the second straight game while he recovers from the left calf injury, though the fact that he was able to make a pinch-hit appearance in Monday's 3-2 loss bodes well for his chances of avoiding a trip to the injured list. The Nationals will run out an outfield consisting of Ehire Adrianza, Victor Robles and Lane Thomas in Tuesday's contest.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Not starting Monday

    Soto (calf) isn't starting Monday's game against Miami.

    Soto underwent an MRI that came back clean after he exited Sunday's matchup against Miami, but he said Monday that he's still feeling a little tight. He's considered day-to-day for now, but Lane Thomas will shift to right field while Victor Robles starts in center.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Solo shot in loss

    Soto went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Marlins.

    Soto launched a solo home run in the sixth inning to get the Marlins' lead down to one, but it was not enough to spur the Nationals to a win. It was his 15th home run of the year and his first since June 19. The young star has struggled mightily this season, with his batting average sitting at .226, but he has performed well lately. Since June 24, Soto has played in eight games and has at least one hit in each.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Diagnosed with left calf tightness

    Soto was removed from Sunday's game against the Marlins due to left calf tightness, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Soto was initially believed to be dealing with a left hamstring injury after leaving Sunday's matchup in the top of the fifth inning, but his injury is now classified as a calf issue. The 23-year-old is receiving an MRI and will be re-evaluated Monday. A better idea of his status should come into focus once the results of his examination are known.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Dealing with left hamstring issue

    Soto's departure from Sunday's game against the Marlins is believed to be the result of a left hamstring injury, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. He walked in both of his plate appearances prior to exiting in the top of the fifth inning.

    Soto appeared to initially hurt his hamstring when he bumped into the outfield wall while pursuing Bryan De La Cruz's leadoff double in the third inning, then may have aggravated the issue when he was caught in a rundown in the bottom of the fourth. Dougherty suggests that Soto may have been lifted from the contest as a matter of precaution, but Nationals manager Dave Martinez will likely shed more light on the matter following Sunday's contest. The Nationals will have a quick turnaround for Monday's series finale, which begins at 11:05 a.m. ET.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Leaves with apparent leg injury

    Soto was removed in the top of the fifth inning of Sunday's game against the Marlins due to an apparent left leg injury, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. He walked in both of his plate appearances before departing.

    Per Zuckerman, Soto initially looked to be dealing with some pain in the leg after he ran into the outfield wall while tracking down Bryan De La Cruz's leadoff double in the third inning. He then appeared to have aggravated the injury when he was involved in a rundown after reaching base on his second walk of the afternoon in the fourth inning. Lane Thomas came off the bench to replace Soto, who should be considered day-to-day until the Nationals provide an update on the nature of his injury.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: On base five times Sunday

    Soto went 1-for-1 with four walks and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

    Texas refused to let the 23-year-old slugger beat them, but the Nationals still took advantage as Josh Bell and Nelson Cruz combined for five hits and four RBI hitting behind Soto. Soto has reached base in eight straight games thanks to nine free passes but is hitting only .200 (5-for-25) over that stretch, and his .218 batting average on the season is over 70 points lower than his career mark.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Blasts 14th home run of season

    Soto went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer and a strikeout during Sunday's 9-3 win over the Phillies.

    Soto returned from a two-game absence Thursday against Philadelphia but went just 1-for-14 with a run, three walks and two strikeouts over the four matchups leading up to Sunday's series finale. However, he bounced back with a second-inning homer off Zach Eflin on Sunday, marking the 14th time this season that he's gone yard. Over his last 15 games, the 23-year-old has slashed .185/.343/.481 with five homers, 15 RBI, nine runs and a stolen base.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Quiet in return

    Soto (knee) went 0-for-4 in Thursday's 10-1 loss to the Phillies.

    Soto missed two games after a minor knee injury he sustained Monday. The outfielder was never expected to miss significant time. With the empty stat line Thursday, he's hitting just .170 (8-for-47) in June, though he's added a 10:11 BB:K this month. Overall, the 23-year-old has a .224/.372/.447 slash line, 13 home runs, 28 RBI, 36 runs scored and five stolen bases through 282 plate appearances.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: In Thursday's lineup

    Soto (knee) is starting in right field and hitting third Thursday against the Phillies.

    He hadn't seen the field since being removed from Monday's game with right knee soreness, but he'll rejoin the lineup for Thursday's series opener. Soto is hitting .186/.352/.488 with four home runs and one steal through 43 at-bats in June.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Sitting again Wednesday

    Soto (knee) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Soto was previously expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's contest, but he'll end up being held out for the second straight game due to right knee soreness. It's not believed to be a serious issue as X-rays came back negative, and the Nationals may simply be exercising additional caution with their star outfielder in an attempt to avoid aggravating the injury. Lane Thomas will again shift to right field while Victor Robles starts in center.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Expected back Wednesday

    Soto (knee) is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday against Atlanta, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Soto left Monday's series opener with right knee soreness after bumping into a dugout bench, but while he's out of the lineup Tuesday, the Nationals don't seem overly concerned. His X-rays were negative, but he was due for an off day soon regardless of the injury after starting each of the Nationals' first 63 games. Lane Thomas will start in right field Tuesday.

  • Nationals' Juan Soto: Won't start Tuesday

    Soto (knee) isn't included in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Atlanta, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Soto will exit the lineup for the first time this season after he banged his right knee on a dugout bench in Monday's 9-5 loss in the series opener. Until the Nationals provide a firmer update on his status, Soto can be viewed as day-to-day heading into Wednesday's series finale. Lane Thomas will fill in for Soto in right field Tuesday.
