- Associated Press - Saturday, April 29, 2017

A person familiar with the situation says that Washington Nationals center fielder Adam Eaton will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee.

The person confirmed Eaton’s status to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, because the Nationals had not made public the severity of the injury.

Eaton went on the 10-day disabled list Saturday, one day after hurting his knee during a game.

He was Washington’s biggest offseason acquisition, arriving from the Chicago White Sox in a trade. Eaton was hitting .297 with two homers and 13 RBIs, reaching base safely in 20 of 23 games for the NL East leaders.

Fox Sports first reported Eaton’s season is over.
