Nationals' Adam Eaton: Nationals exercise option for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals have picked up Eaton's $9.5 million club option for 2020, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Eaton was injury plagued for his first two seasons in Washington, but he appeared in 151 games in 2019 and posted a .279/.365/.428 slash line with 15 home runs and 15 stolen bases. The 30-year-old also had a .246/.361/.410 slash line with two homers and a 10:9 BB:K in 17 playoff games to help the Nationals win the World Series. Eaton should enter the 2020 campaign as the starting right fielder in Washington, with youngsters Juan Soto and Victor Robles filling the other two starting spots.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Ties game with solo blast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a pair of runs scored in Tuesday's 7-2 win over Houston in Game 6 of the World Series.

Eaton lined a one-out shot to right field off Justin Verlander to tie the game at 2-2. It was the second long ball of the World Series for the 30-year-old right fielder, who had gone a combined 0-for-7 in Games 4 and 5. He's slashing .246/.358/.421 in 57 postseason at-bats.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Homers in Game 2 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's 12-3 win over Houston in Game 2 of the World Series.

Eaton drove a Josh James offering over the right field wall in the eighth inning, a two-run shot that extended the Nationals' lead to 10-2. He also singled in the first inning and is now riding a six-game hitting streak in the postseason, including a pair of hits in each of the first two games of the World Series.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Steals base in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton went 0-for-1 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in the Nationals' 8-2 win over the Indians on Sunday.

Eaton stepped up to the plate twice before being subbed out by Andrew Stevenson after the third inning. The veteran outfielder finished the regular season slashing .279/.365/.428 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI across 656 plate appearances. Eaton finally logged in a full season with the team without getting hurt and is now ready to help guide the Nationals to a deep run in the playoffs starting Tuesday in the wild-card game against the Brewers.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Day off Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton is not in Thursday's lineup against the Phillies.

The Nationals have given strategic off days to their top hitters over the past few days, and Eaton and Juan Soto will take a turn to sit in this one. Michael Taylor will start in right field and hit seventh.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Knocks 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton went 3-for-4 with a solo homer, two runs scored and a walk during Monday's 7-2 win over the Phillies.

Eaton set two career highs Monday with his 15th home run and 99th run scored. He was finally able to stay healthy for a full season with the Nationals and it's paid off with a .283/.367/.435 slash line over 632 plate appearances.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Collects 14th steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton went 1-for-5 with a stolen base Tuesday in the Nationals' 6-2 win over the Cardinals.

Washington had little hesitation running on Yadier Molina, with Eaton being one of four Nationals to collect steals on the night. Eaton is now up to 14 stolen bases (in 17 attempts) on the season, a somewhat surprising development for an over-30 player who had missed extensive time due to lower-body injuries the previous two years.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Braves, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

This comes as a surprise after manager Dave Martinez told Byron Kerr of MASN Sports on Thursday that Eaton's injury was "going to take some time." Eaton will slot back into his usual spots in right field and the two hole in the batting order against right-hander Julio Teheran for his first start since Monday.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Still out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) is not in Friday's lineup against the Braves.

Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reported Thursday that Eaton's injury is more serious than a day-to-day thing, so we probably won't see him back in the lineup until sometime next week at the earliest. Michael Taylor is starting in right field and hitting eighth.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Still out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Braves.

Eaton will head to the bench for the sixth time in seven games as he continues to deal with a bone bruise in his right knee. While manager Dave Martinez said the outfielder is doing better, he noted that it's going to take some time before he's ready to rejoin the lineup, per Byron Kerr of MASN Sports. "He's getting better. He's still sore. It's a brutal area to get hit in. It's going to take some time but he's getting better," said the skipper. Michael Taylor is starting in right field and hitting eighth in his place.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

He'll sit out for the fifth time in six games while he contends with a bone bruise in his right knee, opening up right field for Gerardo Parra. The Nationals are viewing Eaton as day-to-day and could make him available as a pinch hitter in the series finale.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Diagnosed with bone bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) has been diagnosed with a deep bone bruise after undergoing an MRI on Tuesday, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.

Eaton will be considered day-to-day moving forward, and he'll be available to pinch hit if called upon, per Byron Kerr of MASN Sports. Gerardo Parra should continue to see time in right field until Eaton is cleared to return to the starting nine.

September 3, 2019 03:08 PM
Nationals' Adam Eaton: Held out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.

Eaton will be held out of the second game of the series due to a knee injury, and he's expected to undergo an MRI sometime Tuesday. A timetable for his return should become more clear once his test results are evaluated. Gerardo Parra draws the start in right field and is set to bat seventh.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Headed for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Eaton returned to the lineup Monday after missing three games with knee soreness but was lifted prior to the third inning after aggravating the issue. Manager Dave Martinez admitted he's concerned about the injury, which is toward the back of Eaton's knee rather than the side. Gerardo Parra is a candidate to see time in the outfield should Eaton be forced to miss time.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Lifted early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton was pulled from Monday's game against the Mets after just two innings, seemingly due to a knee injury, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Eaton had missed three straight games with knee soreness before returning to the lineup Monday. His return was apparently premature, as he didn't last long before being replaced by Gerardo Parra. It's not clear how much more time he'll need to rest.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Back in action Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) will start in right field and bat second Monday against the Mets.

Eaton missed the Nationals' past three games after contending with a sore knee, which stemmed from being hit by a pitch Aug. 28 versus the Orioles. The time off appears to have been enough for Eaton to overcome the issue, so he looks like he'll be a safe fantasy play as the Nationals kick off a seven-game slate this week. Gerardo Parra returns to a bench role with Eaton back in action.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Still sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

Eaton was hit by a pitch in the right knee Wednesday and is out of the lineup for the third straight contest. The 30-year-old appears to have avoided a serious injury as X-rays came back negative, and he also appeared as a pinch hitter Friday, though he was pulled for a pinch runner after working a walk. Gerardo Parra receives another start in right field in his place.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Out again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins.

Eaton was plunked on his right knee Wednesday, and while he walked as a pinch hitter Friday, he was lifted for a pinch runner. His X-rays were negative and an extended absence seems unlikely. Gerardo Parra is starting again in right field.

August 30, 2019 11:08 PM
Nationals' Adam Eaton: Sitting out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (knee) is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Marlins.

Eaton exited Wednesday's contest after being hit by a pitch on the right knee, and he'll take at least one additional day to rest up after the Nationals were off Thursday. The veteran outfielder underwent X-rays after leaving the game, which came back negative. Per Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports, Eaton wanted to be in the starting nine but will instead be available off the bench. Gerardo Parra will start in right field and bat second in his place.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: X-rays negative after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton had X-rays on his right knee come back negative after leaving Wednesday's game versus the Orioles, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Eaton was hit by a pitch in the right knee Wednesday and initially stayed in to run the bases, but he was pulled in favor of a pinch runner after advancing to third base. The veteran outfielder should be considered day-to-day, while the Nationals have a scheduled off day Thursday.
