Report: Nationals interested in Eaton, Colome
Eaton is likely to be traded this winter as the White Sox have signaled they're officially in rebuild mode after trading ace Chris Sale to Boston on Tuesday. The 28-year-old Eaton is a strong defender, and is coming off a year in which he hit .284/.362/.428 with 14 home runs, 29 doubles, nine triples and 14 stolen bases in a career-high 157 games.
Adding a player like Eaton to their center field would allow the Nationals to move Trea Turner back to his natural position at shortstop.
The 27-year-old right-hander excelled in is first full season as a reliever. He posted a 1.91 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 71 strikeouts in 56 2/3 innings, while converting 37 saves.
