Nats Journal: Nationals welcome back a calm, cool Espinosa

This early in the season, statistics mean nothing, and in most every case, no greater meaning can be extracted from action on the field. But not always. Thursday afternoon, Danny Espinosa started at second base for the first time since last May. He lambasted two fastballs from Zack Wheeler, driving both to the left-center field gap for doubles. The first almost knocked down the wall. Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Nationals formally announce opening day roster

In placing right-handed starter Doug Fister on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday afternoon, the Nationals formally announced the opening day 25-man roster, which had no surprises. Manager Matt Williams has refused to name a starting second baseman, although the team has operated as if Anthony Rendon will be him. Both Rendon and Danny Espinosa are listed as infielders, while Ian Desmond, Adam LaRoche and Ryan Zimmerman are listed with their specific positions. Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Danny Espinosa validates new approach with two homers

Danny Espinosa had showed his tamed swing created more contact and reduced strikeouts. Saturday afternoon, he learned it could also punish baseballs. Using the same calm, controlled stroke he has worked on all spring, Espinosa blasted two home runs, both from the left-side of the plate, in the Nationals’ 6-5 victory over the Marlins.

On Espinosa’s homers, Harper’s mistake and more

VIERA, Fla. — The Nationals have been telling Danny Espinosa all spring they’ve been pleased with his approach at the plate, even if the results didn’t necessarily back it up. Then on Saturday afternoon, that same approach — a compact swing and an emphasis on trying to hit the ball the other way — finally…

Matt Williams: No decision yet between Anthony Rendon, Danny Espinosa

The Nationals have operated all spring as if Danny Espinosa will serve this season as their super-sub utility infielder, with Anthony Rendon holding on to the second base position he seized in the second half of last season. Rendon entered camp with 18 extra pounds of muscle and has played well all March. While Espinosa […]

The Nationals have operated all spring as if Danny Espinosa will serve this season as their super-sub utility infielder, with Anthony Rendon holding on to the second base position he seized in the second half of last season. Rendon entered camp with 18 extra pounds of muscle and has played well all March. While Espinosa has impressed Manager Matt Williams, his performance seemingly hasn’t overwhelmed to the point he could usurp Rendon. Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Nationals-Cardinals lineups and discussion thread

The Nationals traveled to Jupiter not to try find an intergalactic challenge more difficult than hitting a baseball, but to play the Cardinals. The Nationals used their regular lineup for the past two days, and those players received a break today. You have to squint to find three regulars in the Nationals’ travel roster today. Gio Gonzalez will start against Adam Wainwright (where have we seen that before?) and Danny Espinosa is probably the most notable player in the order. Read full article >>    

Danny Espinosa feeling good about his new approach

Here is the way Danny Espinsoa defines a successful at-bat this spring: Put the barrel of the bat on the ball. That’s it. Whether the ball skips on the ground or shoots through the air, whether it finds turf or leather, whether it’s a hit or an out, Espinosa will push aside. “I can’t just […]
