The Washington Nationals picked up their 2020 options on closer Sean Doolittle ($6.5 million) and outfielder Adam Eaton ($9.5 million). Doolittle had a down year in 2019 and struggled with injuries, posting a 4.05 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 29 saves and 66 K's in 60 innings. The left-hander shared closing duties with Daniel Hudson late in the season, which will make him less attractive as a fantasy closer going into 2020 unless the Nationals are adamant that he will return to the ninth-inning role full time. Hudson is also a free agent this winter. Eaton stayed healthy and played in 151 games, hitting .279/.365/.428 with 15 home runs, 49 RBI, 103 runs and 15 stolen bases. He contributes modestly across all categories and is mainly useful for his speed and runs atop Washington's lineup.
Washington Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton singled in Yan Gomes and Victor Robles in the ninth to give the Nationals a four-run cushion at 6-2 in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday. In the eighth, he stole a bag that led to Juan Soto driving him in on a single. It was a huge night at the plate for Eaton, and you can consider him responsible for three runs with that heads-up baserunning. The Nationals are World Series Champions and one of the greatest underdog stories weve seen out of baseball in some time.
Washington Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton went 1-for-2 with a walk, a home run and two runs scored in the Nationals Game 6 triumph over the Astros 7-2. Eaton smoked a laser over the left field fence to tie the game at 2-2 in the fifth inning and was followed two batters later by a tie-breaking blast by Juan Soto. The Nationals are now one win away from a championship or one loss away from heartbreak. They can thank Eaton for getting this far as the veteran is slashing .333/.440/.619 with two home runs and four runs batted in through 21 World Series at-bats.
