Juan Soto, Nationals hope for clutch hitting vs. Yankees

A visit to Yankee Stadium may be coming at a good time for Juan Soto and the Washington Nationals.

Activated off the injured list Tuesday, Soto was limited to pinch-hitting duties the past three days. However, a trip to an American League ballpark creates an opportunity for the Nationals to use him as a designated hitter Friday when they visit the New York Yankees.

Soto returned Tuesday after being out since April 19 with a strained left shoulder. Because he was not able to play the field, he could only come off the bench to bat, and he went a combined 0-for-3 the Nationals were swept by the visiting Atlanta Braves.
