Adam Eaton floats six-week timeline for return

Adam Eaton floated the idea that he may be able to return to playing in six weeks. He is having his cast removed today following arthroscopic surgery on his ankle.

Fantasy Impact

Despite Eaton's optimism, we've seen 31 combined games that he's played since last season. When healthy, Eaton can certainly be a valuable asset to a fantasy team and is someone worth holding if you have the space.

Adam Eaton transferred to 60-day DL

The Nationals transferred Adam Eaton to the 60-day disabled list on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Although this sounds ominous, it's really just a procedural move. While there's no timetable for his return, there are rumblings that he won't be back for a minimum of five weeks, and the move to the 60-day DL just means that Eaton can't return before the first week of June. Keep Eaton stashed on your DL slot if you can, at least until fantasy owners get a firm timetable.

Adam Eaton undergoes arthroscopic surgery on ankle

Adam Eaton underwent arthroscopic surgery on his ankle on Thursday. The doctors discovered a chondral flap problem and removed it, There is no timetable for his return, though the Nationals expect him back this season.

Fantasy Impact

This is apparently the equivalent of a cartilage tear in Eaton's ankle, and it's highly unlikely that we see Eaton anytime soon. The Nationals will likely provide a timetable at some point in the next week or so, so fantasy owners can continue to stash Eaton if they have the room. But don't be afraid to move on if you're in a roster crunch.

Adam Eaton seeking a second opinion on injured ankle

Washington Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton traveled to Wisconsin on Wednesday to seek a second opinion on his ailing left ankle from renowned orthopedic surgeon Robert Anderson, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. Eaton has been out since early April after injuring the ankle on an awkward slide, but the pain continues to be a concern.

Fantasy Impact

A second opinion this far into the recovery process suggests that the ankle is not healing the way that Eaton and the team had hoped, so there is some cause for concern. The Nationals medical staff initially diagnosed Eaton with a bone bruise, but he continues to be in pain despite shedding the walking boot he had been using a few days ago. The results of his visit are not yet known, but an update could come in the next couple of days.

Adam Eaton 'remans totally shut down'

Adam Eaton "remains totally shut down" according to Chelsea Janes.

Fantasy Impact

Eaton looked close to returning about a week ago but is still experiencing ankle discomfort. This may be a blessing in disguise, as Eaton came back quicker than expected originally, only to re-injure himself. Fantasy owners would be better served to have him get fully healthy before returning which, unfortunately, does not appear to be anytime soon.
