Nationals' Adam Eaton: No limitations Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) appeared to face no limitations during Tuesday's voluntary workout, as the outfield shagged fly balls in left field, went through defensive drills and took batting practice, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports. "He's coming along," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said of Eaton. "He wants to play [Wednesday] if he could. But like I said, for us, it's about getting ready for Opening Day and we'll take one day at a time. He's progression is great. He worked out with the outfielders. He felt really part of the team today taking BP and everything."

As anticipated, Eaton appears to be in fine condition after he was limited to just 23 games in his first season with Washington upon tearing the ACL in his left knee last April. Martinez's comments suggest that the Nationals will limit Eaton's workload during Grapefruit League play, but he should be ready for everyday duties once Opening Day arrives. Moving from center to left field this season should help Eaton from a durability standpoint, but coming off a major knee injury, there's a decent chance the 29-year-old is less aggressive as a basestealer compared to prior seasons.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Ready to test knee in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) said Monday that he has received clearance for spring training after he was able to run, hit and perform change-of-direction work during the offseason, though the Nationals could be cautious of overworking him during Grapefruit League play, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. "The biggest thing is to kind of get [Eaton] to realize that, hey, we want him ready for Opening Day," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. "He's going to get opportunities to play in spring training a lot, but we want him ready for Opening Day."

After suffering a complete tear of the ACL in his left knee upon landing awkwardly on first base while attempting to beat out a grounder in an April 28 game, Eaton spent almost all of the 2017 campaign rehabbing from surgery. He progressed as expected and didn't rule out the possibility of playing late in October if the Nationals had made it to the Fall Classic, but the offseason has provided additional time for him to strengthen the knee. With the outfielder having received clearance to resume all baseball activities, it appears that he won't face significant limitations in the spring, but expect the Nationals to stagger Eaton's workload in order to meet the goal of avoiding a setback prior to Opening Day. Martinez has already penciled Eaton in as the club's leadoff hitter, a role that could make the 29-year-old a contender to finish near the top of the league leaderboard in runs if health prevails.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Expects to be ready by Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 season, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Eaton continues to recover from a torn ACL that he suffered in April, but all signs point to the outfielder being fully healthy by the time Opening Day rolls around. Although Eaton was pressing to make it back for a playoff run this past October, once the team was eliminated by the Cubs in the NLDS, the trainers decided to scale back his rehab in order to give him the best opportunity to be 100 percent for 2018. Looking ahead, there will likely be another update on Eaton's status by February.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: To lead off, play left field in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Davey Martinez said Eaton (knee) will bat leadoff and play left field in 2018, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

This is assuming Eaton, who tore his ACL in April, will be healthy by the start of the season, which appears to be the case at this point. While the 29-year-old played in just 23 games for the Nationals last season, he demonstrated his value as a top-tier table setter in that short time, hitting .297/.393/.462 with 24 runs scored, three stolen bases and an 18:14 K:BB. With Eaton shifting to left field and Bryce Harper entrenched in right, Michael Taylor will likely start the season in center for Washington.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Removed from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Friday.

Eaton tore his ACL in late April, and was only able to appear in 23 games for the Nationals this season, but should be able to return to full health by the start of the 2018 campaign. During those games, he slashed .297/.393/.462 with two home runs and 13 RBI.
