Nationals lineup:

    Juan Soto and Trea Turner both will be key cogs in the Washington Nationals lineup this season, 20-something hitting stars who are coming off top-seven finishes in NL MVP voting. They also are both keen on improving their defense — Turner at shortstop, Soto as he moves from left field to right. And both could be cornerstones for the club’s future if they eventually agree to long-term deals, which the Nationals have tried to make happen, so far unsuccessfully. Turner, 27, has two years left before he can become a free agent; Soto, still just 22, has four. Both were asked Tuesday via video conference after Washington’s first full-squad workout in West Palm Beach, Florida, about their contract status and thoughts about the future. Soto was coy — “I just try to come here and play baseball; I don’t think about any of that,” he said — and...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington ace Max Scherzer cooled off Tampa Bay with seven scoreless innings, and the Nationals used a makeshift lineup to beat the Rays 6-1 on Monday night. Kurt Suzuki had an RBI double among his three hits and Michael A. Taylor drove in two runs for the last-place Nationals, who were missing several regulars and started utilityman Brock Holt at designated hitter for the sixth time in his career. Holt batted third and went 2 for 4 with a double. He has nine hits over his past three games. Scherzer (4-2) stranded six baserunners in the first four innings before settling in and retiring 10 straight batters in one stretch. The three-time Cy Young Award winner allowed six hits, struck out eight and walked one in his second-longest outing of the season. The Rays came in with a season-best 5 1/2-game lead in the AL East and...
    ATLANTA (AP) — The Washington Nationals removed left fielder Juan Soto from the lineup for Friday’s first game of a doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves because of a sore left shoulder. Soto’s exit takes away one of baseball’s top hitters and comes one day after another Washington outfielder, Adam Eaton, was forced out of Thursday night’s game with a jammed knee. The 21-year-old Soto is hitting .354 with 11 homers and 26 RBIs. He missed the first eight games because of a positive test for the coronavirus, although he never had symptoms. Soto was listed as the No. 2 hitter in the original lineup announced by the team. In the adjusted lineup, Josh Harrison moved from third base to left field and Wilmer Difo played third. The team did not immediately provide details of Soto’s injury. Earlier Friday, manager Dave Martinez said he hoped Eaton would be available for Friday...

After a dreadful start to his Mets career in 2020, Porcello spun together a gem on a night that was supposed to be all about his counterpart, Nationals ace Max Scherzer. Instead, due to an injury to the Washington ace, Porcello stole the show, allowing one run on five hits in seven innings of work which saw him retire the final 10 batters he faced. What made Wednesday night’s performance that much more surprising was that Porcello had done little to impress in his first two Mets starts. It created the feeling that the...
    Left fielder Juan Soto was reinstated by the Washington Nationals from the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday after missing the team’s first seven games of the season. Manager Dave Martinez did not put the slugger in Washington’s starting lineup against the New York Mets for the opener of a two-game series Tuesday night. Martinez did say Soto was available to pinch hit. “I talked to him last night and he really felt like he probably could use another day or two. He said his legs felt a little heavy. His arm was a little sore,” Martinez said. “He tried to ramp it up. ... The last four days, he probably got about 20 at-bats. In that respect, he doesn’t feel that bad, but I want to make sure we keep him healthy. We just got him back. He missed a lot of time.” CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM...

    New York Yankees V Baltimore Orioles: Game and score predictions By: Alexander Wilson July 29, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesAfter the New York Yankees’ series against the Philadelphia Phillies was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the Miami Marlins ranks, the squad will now face off against the Baltimore Orioles as a supplement. The Phillies previously played a three-game series against Miami, and despite taking extreme actions to eradicate any possibility of viral transmission, the Yankees elected to stay away. During the process of moving all their equipment back to the Bronx, the Yankees received a call from Major League Baseball. The call asked if they would prefer to play against the Orioles at Camden Yards in Baltimore. So, of course, the Yankees decided to compete, moving all of their equipment to Baltimore instead. ...
    New York Yankees make three major changes to lineup ahead of Sunday’s game By: Alexander Wilson July 26, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesAfter being thrashed 9-2 against the Washington Nationals, the New York Yankees made several major changes to their lineup on Sunday afternoon. It seems as if manager Aaron Boone is not afraid to start Miguel Andujar in left field, as he inserted him into the lineup before today’s game. Andujar, who has been working in left field this off-season, provides more offensive capabilities, which is why he’s being inserted. While he missed a majority of 2019 with a torn labrum, he was the runner up for Rookie of the Year in 2018. Andujar posted a .297 batting average was 27 home runs and 92 RBIs in 2018. Andujar showed off his offensive...
