The Nationals called up 19-year-old outfielder Juan Soto after another outfielder got injured. He made his major league debut Sunday against the Dodgers, striking out as a pinch hitter.

Ronald Acuña's reign as MLB's youngest player is over. The Nationals are calling up 19-year old outfielder Juan Soto. Soto has just 31 at-bats above A-ball, but is hitting .362 with 14 home runs in 39 games across three levels this year. The Nats outfield, which has been decimated by injuries, suffered another blow on Saturday when Howie Kendrick sustained a season-ending Achilles injury.

Rain strikes in DC. Again. The opener of Nats/Dodgers has been postponed and will be made up as part of a day/night doubleheader on Saturday. Official pitching matchups have not yet been announced, but there's word that one of the games may feature Noah vs. a pair of giraffes.

The Nationals Park grounds crew was just spraying the base lines for today's (hopeful) resumed game between the Yankees and Nationals. But the tarp is still on the field as rain falls in D.C. three hours before first pitch.


BBTN: Cano Suspended, Harper Roller Coaster, Hembo Knows

Yankees-Nationals suspended with score 3-3 after 5½ innings

Robinson Cano's suspension wasn't the only one today. The series opener between the Nats and Yankees was also suspended. The game - which was halted due to weather with the game tied 3-3 in the middle of the sixth - will be resumed Wednesday at 5:05pm, prior to the originally slated finale of the two-game set.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Tonight's Yankees/Nationals game has been suspended. It is considered an official game at this point, meaning it will resume tomorrow at 5:05 p.m. ET. The teams will also play the second game at the originally scheduled 7:05 p.m. ET start time.
