8 months agoWashington Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton has always had an enticing mix of speed and power for a player of his stature (5-foot-9, 176 pounds), but so far, injuries have defined his career. He played in 150-plus games in 2015 and 2016 in his final seasons with the White Sox and accumulated 28 home runs and 32 stolen bases, but he's only played in 118 games in his two seasons in D.C. due to various injuries. He also just turned 30 in December, so fantasy owners probably won't be banking on a fully healthy season from him in 2019. In 95 games in 2018 for Washington, Eaton hit .301/.394/.411 with five round-trippers, 55 runs, 33 RBI and nine stolen bases. Eaton's excellent plate discipline and improved walk rates the last two years make him the perfect leadoff hitter in D.C., but he still hits too many ground balls to be a threat to top the career-high 14 homers he set in Chicago. He has the speed to steal 20-plus bases over a full season, but the Nats may prefer he avoid running as much in order to stay healthy. Eaton can be useful for his on-base percentage and high average as a contact hitter that can score runs atop a potent lineup, but his extensive injury history makes him a late-round target in deep mixed leagues around the 20th round. If he stays healthy for an entire season, you'll have a nice little value on your hands.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
