Nationals’ Juan Soto avoids serious injury after rolling his ankle against the Mets
Juan Soto was steaming around third base and headed for home during the seventh inning Sunday afternoon when he saw the stop sign. Washington Nationals third base coach Bob Henley had his arms up as he watched the New York Mets relay the ball in from the right field. Soto tried to plant his feet and stop, but his right ankle rolled over. He wanted to retreat to third base, but his body wouldn’t cooperate. “I stayed there and made myself out,” he said after the game. “After that, I started feeling pinches in my ankle. But right now, it’s feeling better.” After the Nationals averted a sweep by beating the Mets, 7-4, at Citi Field, the team diagnosed Soto with a mild right ankle sprain. X-rays returned negative, and he is considered day-to-day. Soto walked gingerly but seemed upbeat in the clubhouse and mentioned that, if he woke up feeling okay, he might play as soon as Monday night in the series opener against the Cincinnati Reds at Nationals Park. The injury looked worse when it happened. New teammate Asdrubal Cabrera had delivered an ultimately decisive two-run double, and the Nationals were sprinting around the bases when Soto saw Henley’s stop sign. After the play ended, Soto couldn’t walk and a cluster formed around him, including trainer Paul Lessard, Manager Dave Martinez, and several players. Soto argued he should stay in the game, but his manager and teammates told him to rest. He had already hit three home runs in the first two games of the series and scored a run Sunday.
