Soto (back) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday against the Dodgers after missing the minimum, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Soto was shut down from baseball activities for a few days while getting rest and treatment, but he was spotted throwing on the field in Milwaukee on Tuesday. Though nothing has been made official just yet, the Nationals are optimistic he'll be ready to return over the weekend.
Soto (back) will rest and receive treatment for four or five days before resuming baseball activities, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Soto could return from the 10-day injured list in a week, but this report casts that in some doubt, as he'd have only a day or two between resuming swinging and getting back in the lineup. The young outfielder did say that his back has continued to feel better since first experiencing pain Wednesday, so it doesn't sound as though his absence will be a particularly long one.
Soto was placed on the 10-day injured list with back spasms Saturday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Soto hadn't played since Tuesday, though reports from Friday suggested he could be back over the weekend. The Nationals evidently changed their minds, so Soto will sit for at least another week. Andrew Stevenson was recalled in a corresponding move.
Soto (back) could return in the next day or two, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
Soto has been out of the lineup due to back spasms since Wednesday. He still has discomfort when he swings, but a trip to the injured list doesn't seem imminent as of Friday.
Soto (back) remains on the bench Friday against the Phillies.
Soto has been battling back spasms since Wednesday and will sit for the third straight contest. Michael Taylor gets another start in center field, pushing Victor Robles to right and Adam Eaton to left.
