Eric Thames dealing with tight left calf, should play this weekend

Nationals first baseman/outfielder Eric Thames is dealing with a tight left calf but should be able to appear in some games this weekend, according to manager Dave Martinez.

Fantasy Impact

Thames has displayed his power over the last few seasons but has had troubles with both injuries and consistency. He will have a chance to carve out a roll with the Nationals as a left-handed bat against right-handed pitching this year.

Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports the Nationals are signing Eric Thames.

Fantasy Impact

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reports the contract is for one year and $3 million. There's also a mutual option for 2021. The 33-year-old Thames will likely play first base against right-handers for Washington next season. In 2019 he bopped 25 homers while posting an .851 OPS.

Eric Thames still in contact with Brewers

The Brewers have said that they're still in contact with free agent Eric Thames.

Fantasy Impact

The Brewers opted to decline a $7.5 million club option for Thames last month, but it appears a reunion at a reduced price could still happen. Thames saw less than a full-time role in 2019, but he was still productive in his time with the Brewers. He posted an OPS of .851 to go with 25 homers in 459 plate appearances.

Fantasy Impact

It would've been worth $7.5 million but Milwaukee will instead issue him a $1 million buyout. The 32-year-old posted a .851 OPS with 25 homers last season and is reportedly drawing interest from teams overseas.
