Washington Nationals awaiting test results on Juan Soto’s calf

The Washington Nationals say hitter Juan Soto left Sunday’s 7-4 loss to the Miami Marlins with a left calf injury.

According to the team, Soto underwent an MRI after the game to determine the extent of the injury.

“We’ll reevaluate him and see what’s going on,” said manager Dave Martinez.

Soto bent and pointed his left leg after making a throw in right field in the third inning and was taken out after being involved in a rundown in the fourth.

Soto had his eight-game hitting streak broken after walking twice.

“Oh, yeah, it’s obviously terrifying,” said Josh Bell, the Nationals first baseman who ended Pablo Lopez’s no-hit bid in the seventh and hit a go-ahead solo home run in the eighth. “Fingers fingers nothing is too time consuming either. We will see. I know he will probably bring the results back here soon. I know we’re all holding our breath for him. I think time will tell.”

In other Nationals news, Martinez said right-hander Victor Arano (inflamed left knee) is close to returning after throwing a bullpen session and going through some agility drills, with a trip to the team’s minor league facility in West Palm Beach, Florida next before a rehab assignment.

Righty Anibal Sanchez, who has been on the 60-day injured list since April with a pinched nerve in the neck, was expected to throw about 60 pitches over four innings or so Sunday night for Triple-A Rochester. And left-hander Evan Lee (left arm) is also set to start a throwing program in Florida, Martinez said.
