Royals' Nate Eaton: Optioned to Triple-A

Royals' Nate Eaton: Out of lineup Sunday
Eaton is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's contest against the White Sox.
Eaton will take a seat on the bench to open Sunday, and the outfielder has gone just 2-for-26 with eight strikeouts thus far in the month of May. Jackie Bradley will patrol center field and hit eighth with Eaton out of the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Playing time trending up
Eaton will start in left field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Padres.
Eaton will stick in the lineup for the fourth time in five games, despite having gone just 1-for-20 since receiving a call-up from Triple-A Omaha on May 5. Despite his struggles, Eaton appears to have emerged as the Royals' preferred option in center field over Jackie Bradley, though Kansas City will have room in the outfield for both players Wednesday while Edward Olivares gets the day off....

Royals' Nate Eaton: Receiving promotion
The Royals will recall Eaton to the majors Friday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
With Kyle Isbel (hamstring) headed for the injured list, Eaton will join the major-league club to maintain depth in the Royals' outfield. Eaton has just one hit over 25 at-bats in the majors this season, but he has bounced back nicely in the minors, slashing .304/.385/.522 since being optioned to Triple-A Omaha on April 24....

Royals' Nate Eaton: Sent down to Triple-A
The Royals optioned Eaton to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.
Eaton is sent down to make room for Franmil Reyes (personal) on the roster after Reyes was activated from the paternity list before Monday's game against the Diamondbacks. In 25 plate appearances, Eaton picked up just one hit and registered an ugly 0:13 BB:K over 12 games.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Nabs steal in loss
Eaton went 0-for-3 with a stolen base in Monday's 4-0 loss to the Rangers.
It was another abysmal day at the plate for the Royals, who managed just one hit and two walks. Eaton was able to get aboard on an error in the third inning before stealing second. The 26-year-old was expected to get a chance to see some regular playing time in 2023, but he's gone 1-for-22 with two steals and a run scored over 22 plate appearances. He's also struck out 12 times, so he's likely closer to getting optioned out than he is to jumping into the starting nine on a regular basis.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Swipes bag off bench
Eaton went 0-for-2 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 8-5 extra-inning loss to the Rangers.
Eaton entered as a pinch runner for Franmil Reyes in the seventh inning and promptly stole second base before he was left stranded. It's been an ugly start to the campaign for Eaton, who has just one hit and 10 strikeouts through 19 at-bats. Even with the Royals' bats ice cold to start the year, he's not doing enough to push for playing time, which will make it tough for him to tap into his plus speed.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Sits after two straight starts
Eaton is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.
After starting in three of the past four games but going hitless with six strikeouts across 10 plate appearances, Eaton will retreat to the bench. Even with Kyle Isbel (personal) going on the paternity list Wednesday and likely on track to miss the next three days, Eaton doesn't look as though he'll be in store for a dramatic increase in playing time in light of his struggles at the plate to begin the season....

Royals' Nate Eaton: Looks ready for starting role
Eaton is batting .357 (10-for-28) over 12 Cactus League games.
Eaton has played regularly this spring and it looks like he's ready to handle a starting role. With Drew Waters (oblique) likely out to begin the season, Eaton should have a chance to establish himself, likely as the Royals' primary left fielder. The 26-year-old also has some experience in the infield, so he could be a utility option later in the campaign if he doesn't maintain a starting role. His primarily appeal in fantasy is his speed -- he had 11 stolen bases in 44 major-league games as a rookie last season.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: In line for more playing time
Eaton is in line for more playing time in the Royals' outfield following the injury to Drew Waters (oblique), Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Edward Olivares also has a clearer path to playing time, although he had already seemed in line to handle the bulk of the reps in right field. Samad Taylor and perhaps Franmil Reyes also could see a boost in playing time. As far as Eaton goes, his stolen-base potential makes him an interesting late-round target in deep fantasy leagues with the hope he could get regular at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Hits bench Monday
Eaton is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Guardians.
Eaton will sit for the second time in three games, affording Hunter Dozier a turn at third base. Since the beginning of September, Eaton has been an excellent source of steals (nine in 10 attempts) and batting average (.327 over 55 at-bats), but he's not supplementing that production with many other counting statistics....

Royals' Nate Eaton: Takes seat Saturday
Eaton isn't starting Saturday against the Guardians.
Eaton is getting a chance to rest after he went 1-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a walk over the last two games. Hunter Dozier will take his place at the hot corner and bat sixth.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Not in Wednesday's lineup
Eaton isn't starting Wednesday against the Tigers.
Eaton went 1-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and two strikeouts Tuesday and will head to the bench for the second time in the last three games. Hunter Dozier is taking over at the hot corner and batting sixth.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Yet another steal in win
Eaton went 2-for-3 with one run scored and one steal in Wednesday's victory over the Twins.
Eaton has recorded a steal in five straight games with a .400 average over 15 at-bats. The 25-year-old rookie has also turned in four multi-hit performances in his last 13 games.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Swipes another bag
Eaton went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Twins.
Eaton has started three straight games at third base, and he's been in the lineup for four in a row. The 25-year-old has provided a speed boost at the bottom of the order, logging a stolen base in each of his last four games, putting him at nine thefts for the year. He's added a respectable .253/.326/.373 slash line with a home run, seven RBI and 11 runs scored. Eaton's playing time is likely to come at the expense of Nicky Lopez, as both provide versatility and speed without much power.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Contributes another steal
Eaton went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 9-0 win over the Red Sox.
Eaton has stolen a base in each of the last two games. The 25-year-old's playing time could soon dry up, as Drew Waters (ankle) and Edward Olivares (quadriceps) are both healthy and candidates to see time in right field. Eaton can play around the outfield and also started Saturday's game at third base, so there's some versatility, but he'll have to keep his bat hot to keep getting chances. He's slashing .257/316/.386 with seven steals through his first 30 major-league contests.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Manages steal in loss
Eaton went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox.
Eaton was on the bench for the Royals' last two games after starting four of the previous five. He was able to snap an 0-for-6 skid and picked up his sixth stolen base of the year in this contest. The rookie outfielder has added one home run, six RBI, eight runs scored and a .242/.307/.379 slash line through 75 plate appearances, though it's likely he remains a part-time player. He could see a short-term increase in usage with Drew Waters (ankle) considered day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Logs fifth steal
Eaton went 0-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Guardians.
Eaton drew the start in right field for just the second time in seven September games, with fellow rookie Drew Waters shifting over to center. Eaton was able to draw a leadoff walk and add a steal in the seventh inning, notching his fifth theft in as many attempts through 23 big-league games. The outfielder has added one home run, five RBI, six runs scored, two doubles and two triples while slashing .245/.311/.415 through 61 plate appearances. He doesn't have an everyday role yet, so he's mostly just a speed option off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Nate Eaton: Posts steal in loss
Eaton went 1-for-2 with a stolen base in Monday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Guardians.
Eaton entered the game as a pinch hitter for Kyle Isbel in the seventh inning and struck out. In the ninth, Eaton singled and stole second with one out, but he was left on base. The rookie outfielder has provided a boost of speed in a part-time role -- his steal was his fourth of the year in just 22 games, and two in his last two contests. He's added a .255/.310/.431 slash line with one home run, five RBI, six runs scored, two triples and two doubles through 58 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
