Nationals | Danny Espinosa back in lineup

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at second base Monday, July 28, because he ...

Why Zach Walters is starting at second base

While Ryan Zimmerman rests his significant hamstring strain and the Nationals await another evaluation of it, there is an obvious void in the lineup. Anthony Rendon shifted back to third base, and Danny Espinosa was expected to man second base in the meantime. But against a right-handed starter on Friday in Cincinnati, Nationals Manager Matt Williams instead turned to rookie […]

Nats Journal: Danny Espinosa takes advantage of rare opportunity

One more day, and it would have been a month, a full month, without a hit for Danny Espinosa. When he stepped to the plate in the fourth inning Monday against Franklin Morales, Espinosa’s last hit had come in June 22. He usually didn’t play. He couldn’t get a ball to drop.

Nats Journal: Danny Espinosa re-adjusts to his new role

For the first time since the Nationals returned to full strength a week and a half ago, the odd man out, Danny Espinosa, was back in the lineup. While Ryan Zimmerman was injured and returned but to left field, Espinosa manned second base daily. When Bryce Harper returned on June 30, however, Espinosa and his .217 average were pushed to the bench. In that span, he has had only one plate appearance and been a late-game defensive substitution twice. Read full article >>

Espinosa understands, accepts reduced role

BALTIMORE — Ten straight game days, Danny Espinosa walked into the Nationals’ clubhouse, checked the lineup card, didn’t see his name listed among the starters and went about his business as a newly benched player. And then on Wednesday, when he arrived at Camden Yards, Espinosa gave his usual cursory glance at the lineup card…
