Nationals | Danny Espinosa back in lineup

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is back in the lineup Friday, May 3, after sitting out for two games at the expense of 2B Steve Lombardozzi. Espinosa has a triple slash line of only .173/.212/.333 this year. Manager Davey Johnson was non-committal on whether Espinosa will remain as the primary second baseman, but he will give him every chance to prove he deserves the spot.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa is best used as a middle infielder in deep mixed leagues, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to bench him until he gets going, if you have that luxury. Lombardozzi isn't a bad gamble in deep leagues, either, just in case he winds up winning more playing time over the struggling Espinosa.
