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.

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 >>
