Nationals' Juan Soto: On base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 1-for-2 with one run, one RBI and two walks during Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Rays.

The 21-year-old returned from a four-game absence as the designated hitter Tuesday and appeared no worse for wear after battling the elbow soreness. Soto has a .356/.463/.752 slash line with 11 homers, 22 runs and 27 RBI through 28 games this season.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Returns as designated hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (elbow) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, batting cleanup while serving as the designated hitter.

Soto is evidently still not ready to take the field, but he's ready to hit after missing four straight games with a sore elbow. He certainly hasn't swung as if he's hurt this season, as his .354/.453/.758 slash line would easily represent career bests in all three categories.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Gets swings in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (elbow) was able to swing the bat Monday and felt OK, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Soto has missed four consecutive games, but had an MRI come back clean. That he was able to hit without pain is a positive, and he remains day-to-day with a chance to return Tuesday.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (elbow) isn't in Monday's lineup against the Rays.

Soto will miss a fourth consecutive game as he continues to deal with elbow soreness. He recently underwent an MRI that came back clean, but Michael Taylor will start in left field Monday.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto is not in the lineup Sunday against Atlanta.

Soto was expected to miss some time after being scratched Friday due to elbow soreness. His MRI did come back clean, so his return is expected relatively soon. Brock Holt draws the start in left field in his place and will bat fifth.

September 6, 2020 03:36 AM
Nationals' Juan Soto: Won't start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (elbow) will be on the bench as expected Saturday against Atlanta.

Soto was scratched Friday due to left elbow soreness and is expected to be out for at least a couple days. When exactly he returns to the lineup remains to be seen, but an MRI didn't reveal any serious issues, so his absence likely won't be a lengthy one. Brock Holt will get the nod in left field.

Nationals' Juan Soto: MRI comes back clean
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (elbow) underwent an MRI on Friday that came back clean, Todd Dybas of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Soto didn't play in either of Friday's contests due to soreness in his throwing elbow, but his MRI didn't reveal anything overly serious. Manager Dave Martinez said that he'll get a couple days off as a result of the injury. Michael Taylor could continue to fill in while Soto is sidelined.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Scratched with elbow soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto was scratched from the lineup for Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta with left elbow soreness, Dan Kolko of MASNSports.com reports.

The 21-year-old was penciled in at his usual spot in the lineup for Friday's matinee until the elbow issue was reported less than an hour before first pitch. Soto will presumably also be sidelined for the second game of the doubleheader. Josh Harrison will move to left field after originally being set to start at third base, while WIlmer Difo takes over at third.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Goes deep twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 2-for-4 with two homers, four RBI and a walk in Monday's 8-6 loss to the Phillies.

Soto launched a pair of two-run homers in the sixth and ninth innings of Monday's loss. The 21-year-old is mashing with 11 long balls and a 1.252 OPS this season.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Mashes ninth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer in Friday's 10-2 win over the Red Sox.

Only getting one hit in a night is almost a slump for Soto, but he still supplied the big blow in a five-run third inning that gave Max Scherzer all the offense he would need. The 21-year-old slugger has gone yard in back-to-back games to give him nine homers and 20 RBI in only 21 games, and his slash line sits at a dizzying .368/.461/.803.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Homers keep flying
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

He gave the Nats an early lead by taking Aaron Nola yard in the second inning, but the offense only managed one more run afterwards. Soto has been nearly unstoppable at the plate after his late start to the season, slashing a monstrous .380/.476/.803 in 20 games with eight homers, 17 runs, 18 RBI and a 12:10 BB:K.

August 24, 2020 11:52 PM
Nationals' Juan Soto: Enjoys four-hit night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Monday's 11-8 loss to the Marlins.

Soto plated a run in the seventh inning on a double, but Washington was unable to complete the comeback. The 21-year-old slugger has wasted no time since returning from the COVID-19 injured list, slashing .400/.487/.815 with seven home runs, 17 RBI and a stolen base in 18 games.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Slugs seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's 7-6 loss to Atlanta.

Fresh off being named the NL Player of the Week, Soto took Will Smith deep in the ninth inning for his seventh homer in only 13 games. The 21-year-old's .409/.490/.955 slash line, 14 runs scored and 15 RBI aren't too bad, either.

August 16, 2020 12:04 PM
Nationals' Juan Soto: Keeps mashing in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Orioles.

Soto went deep in the fourth inning to get the Nationals on the board. He's slugged six homers with 14 RBI, 10 runs scored and a stolen base in 10 games this season. The outfielder is slashing .405/.463/.973 across 41 plate appearances.

August 14, 2020 01:20 AM
Nationals' Juan Soto: Belts fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 8-2 loss to the Mets.

Soto has been on a tear at the plate since making his season debut on Aug. 5. Thursday's homer marked the outfielder's third long ball in the last two games and his fifth overall on the campaign. The slugger will carry a line of .414/.452/1.034 into the weekend series against the Orioles.

August 13, 2020 01:48 AM
Nationals' Juan Soto: Launches pair of homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Wednesday's 11-6 loss to the Mets.

After touching up Robert Gsellman for a three-run shot in the first inning, Soto added a solo homer in the sixth. The 21-year-old has hit four home runs in his last four games and has his batting line up to .423/.444/1.000 after opening the season on the COVID-19 injured list. Soto believes he ended up there as a result of a false positive.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Crushes monster shot off Matz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in Monday's 16-4 rout of the Mets.

Steven Matz hung a curve at the top of the strike zone in the third inning and Soto absolutely annihilated it, sending it an estimated 463 feet to straightaway center field for the fourth-longest homer in Citi Field history. The 21-year-old slugger hasn't missed a beat despite his delayed start to the season -- in his first five games, Soto is hitting .444 (8-for-18) with three doubles, two home runs and five RBI.

Nationals' Juan Soto: Socks first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Orioles.

He took Tom Eshelman deep in the second inning for his first homer of the year. Soto has wasted no time getting into a groove at the plate after his delayed start to the season, going 4-for-11 in his first three games with a double and Saturday's home run.

August 6, 2020 09:40 AM
Nationals' Juan Soto: Two hits in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

After a delayed start to the season due to what Soto insists was a false positive COVID-19 test, the 21-year-old certainly didn't look like a player who'd been battling any sort of illness once he got into the lineup. He'll now resume his duties as the engine of the Nats' offense.

August 5, 2020 02:12 PM
Nationals' Juan Soto: Set for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto will make his season debut Wednesday against the Mets, batting cleanup and playing left field, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Soto had been sidelined since testing positive for COVID-19 immediately prior to the Nationals' Opening Day game. He believes the test was a false positive, but he's nonetheless been out of action due to both league and local government protocols. He was activated from the injured list Tuesday but waited one more day to debut, as he needed another day of practice to get back into game shape after spending so much time in isolation.
