Some bad news for the Nationals this afternoon. In addition to trailing the Mets 4-2 — and somehow blowing a no-out, bases loaded situation in the sixth without scoring a run — they may have also lost their left fielder to an injury.

Adam Eaton was 1-for-1 with a double, a walk, and two runs scored against Jacob deGrom in the early going, but he seemed to hold up kind of gingerly as he was ranging back on a Michael Conforto home run. Earlier in the game he had that awkward slide into home, but he seemed to pop up from that just fine. Of course he’s coming off of a major knee injury last year. Brian Goodwin replaced him in left field to begin the top of the sixth inning.

It’d be bad news for the Nats if Eaton has to miss time. He has started the season blazing hot, going 10-for-his-first 22 with a couple homers and five driven in.

We’ll update when we hear what’s ailing Eaton.

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.

The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.

The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.

Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
