Nats Journal: Danny Espinosa, the odd man out of the Nationals infield

FLUSHING, N.Y. — If there is a downside to the recent restoration of most of the lineup the Nationals imagined, it is that one of the team’s most consistent power hitters and strongest defenders has no natural place to play every day. In spring training, the Nationals did not conceive of an everyday lineup that included Danny Espinosa. By July, they had nine lineups all season without him.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Danny Espinosa does it again for the Nationals

Watch days and weeks and months go by, feel chilly April nights turn to stifling July evenings, and watch Danny Espinosa‘s resurgence continue. The Washington Nationals‘ second baseman — if that’s what you want to call him, because he’s played everywhere this season — turned into the Nationals third baseman in the third inning of Wednesday’s 4-3 win over the Mets, then drove in the winning run in the eighth. The defensive standout whose offense nearly doomed him came through again, with both glove and bat and a spark in what could reasonably be considered Washington’s...

Espinosa departs with pair of cramped calves

Danny Espinosa limped off the field in ninth inning of Saturday’s 4-2 loss to the Dodgers, causing momentary panic throughout Nationals Park that subsided once it was revealed the second baseman was suffering only from a pair of cramped calves that should not be a concern moving forward. “I think he’ll be fine,” manager Matt…

Nats Journal: Danny Espinosa’s first-half revival

This season, Danny Espinosa has been a good, gritty all-around baseball player, and most players would probably tell you there is no higher compliment. He’s been the kind of guy who can hit a home run, bunt for a hit, make a standout play and steal a base, then take a hit to the knee and stay in the game. He did many of those things last weekend against the Orioles, lifting the Nationals’ depleted lineup with a bunt, a bomb, and plenty of defense.Read full article >>

With Nats needing spark, Espinosa steps up

With Nats needing a spark, Espinosa delivers again

BALTIMORE — Even the most ardent supporters of Danny Espinosa probably admit they didn’t see this coming, not to this extent. The All-Star break is a few hours away, and the Nationals right now are trying to figure out where they’d be without this guy. “He’s kept us afloat a little bit,” manager Matt Williams…
