Nationals reinstate OF Soto (back) from IL

The Washington Nationals reinstated outfielder Juan Soto from the 10-day injured list on Saturday ahead of the team's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Soto, 20, had been on the IL with back spasms.

Soto batted third against the Dodgers and started in left field. He finished the night 1-for-3 with an RBI and run scored in Washington's 5-2 win.

The Nationals optioned infielder Jake Noll to Triple-A Fresno in a corresponding move.
