Adam Eaton heading to Nationals following trade
The Washington Nationals acquired outfielder Adam Eaton from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for pitching prospects Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez and Dane Dunning.
This is a huge get for a Nationals team that intends to make some noise this offseason. Eaton projects to start in center and should provide a sizable boost for Washington's lineup. The asking price was so high for the 28-year-old due to a team-friendly contract that goes through 2021.
Eaton slashed .284/.362/.428 with 14 home, 59 RBI's and 14 stolen bases in 706 plate appearances (157 games) while earning a career-high 6.0 Wins Above Replacement.
