Nationals' Adam Eaton: Serving as DH in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (hamstring) is serving as the designated hitter Thursday for the second day in a row.

Eaton is still not ready to occupy an outfield spot, but it's a good sign that he will at least take at-bats for the second day in a row. It seems likely he will have enough time to both get back in the field and get up to full speed before the regular season gets underway.

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

Eaton (hamstring) will bat second and serve as the Nationals' designated hitter in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Eaton was out of the lineup for the past eight days with a tight hamstring, but after he was able to run the bases without any apparent complications the past two days, the Nationals have signed off on him playing in a purely offensive role. Washington is likely just taking some extra precaution with the oft-injured outfielder, who should be cleared to man his normal position in the field by time spring training ends.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Not yet running at 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (hamstring) was able to get on the field Saturday to hit but was only running at 75-80 percent, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

As yet, the Nats don't believe the veteran outfielder will miss Opening Day, as he got an early jump on training camp in January and won't need to completely start from scratch once he's cleared to return. "I'll start getting concerned if he's not playing within the next five or six days," manager Dave Martinez said Sunday. "We could ramp him up here fairly quickly. For me, I told him -- just like these other guys -- 'Until you show me you can do everything, you're going to just stay back there.' "

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Absence continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton (hamstring) is not in the lineup for either split-squad game on the Nationals' schedule Saturday, according to MLB.com.

Manager Dave Martinez downplayed Eaton's injury after he was removed from Tuesday's spring game, but he has not played since; and with an off day Monday, it could still be a few days before he is back in the lineup. As long as he is able to return to action at some point next week, he should be good to go for Opening Day.

Nationals' Adam Eaton: Dealing with hamstring issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eaton's early exit from Tuesday's game against Baltimore was due to a tweaked left hamstring, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

The issue doesn't appear to be too serious, with manager Dave Martinez saying the outfielder would have stayed in the game if it were a regular-season contest. Assuming Eaton gets back into a game soon, his readiness for Opening Day shouldn't be significantly impacted.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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.
