Washington Nationals’ outfield plans after the Michael A. Taylor injury...

Washington Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo and skipper Davey Martinez on the plans to deal with Michael A. Taylor’s injured knee and hip. Davey Martinez acknowledged that the options to replace outfielder Michael A. Taylor on the roster right now are not ideal when he discussed the results of the MRI Taylor took, which revealed a strain of the left knee and hip the 27-year-old suffered on a diving play in the outfield earlier this week. Juan Soto, Victor Robles, and Adam Eaton were projected to be the starting trio in the Nats’ outfield on Opening Day, with Taylor as the fourth outfielder....

Washington Nationals 8-4 over Atlanta Braves: Nats hit four homers in win...

Adam Eaton, Trea Turner, Juan Soto, and Brian Dozier all went deep in the Nationals’ 8-4 win over the Braves. Patrick Corbin gave up five consecutive hits in his last start before this afternoon’s, then settled in, retiring eight straight to end his third outing of the Spring. Corbin talked with reporters afterward about just getting his work in and testing himself as he prepares for what will be his first season in Washington, D.C. after signing a 6-year/$140M free agent deal this past December. “I was just trying to establish my fastball early,” Corbin explained when asked about...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the start of this afternoon’s Grapefruit League game in Jupiter. It’s the dog days of spring: Opening Day lurks more than two weeks in the distance, and the mere *idea* of baseball is less exciting than it once was. We’ll take the real thing, please and thanks. Here’s what’s new in West Palm: The Nationals’ outfield will be fine without Bryce Harper (BtBS)Juan Soto was probably better than Bryce Harper last year. Victor Robles may be a better prospect than Bryce Harper ever was (though it's unlikely). On top of Adam Eaton...

What will Adam Eaton do with a full season if he stays healthy in 2019?

Adam Eaton is likely going to hit second in Davey Martinez’s lineup. What will we see from a healthy Eaton in 2019? Adam Eaton started Saturday night 5 for 12 (.417/.600/.833) with two doubles, a home run, six walks, three Ks, and one stolen base in seven Grapefruit League games.

Eaton talked at the start of Spring Training this year about the joy of going through a normal offseason routine for the first time in a few offseasons. Eaton, 30, arrived in West Palm Beach a year removed...
