Jorge Castillo of the Washington reports Adam Eaton is currently in a walking boot.

Eaton has been out since April 8 due to a bone bruise in the left ankle. It’s apparently not getting better. Given that he’s in a boot, you have to figure that he’s nowhere close to resuming baseball activities.

Eaton started fast this year, hitting.345/.424/.655 batting and scoring 10 runs in his first eight games this season for Washington. Yet another injury, though, means that he’s played only 31 games for the Nats since coming over in a trade in December 2016.
