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.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
