Nationals left fielder Adam Eaton has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a bone bruise in his left ankle.

A part of the initially announced lineup against Atlanta, the club issued a revised version, with Brian Goodwin at the top of the order, hours later along with the announcement of Eaton's injury.

While it's unclear when Eaton suffered the injury, he exited last Thursday's game against the Mets early after an awkward slide into home plate. Although, he's played in two games since, including all 12 innings Sunday against the Mets. Eaton missed most of 2017 with a torn ACL in his left knee.
