Nationals | Open competition at second base

Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams said Sunday, Feb. 16, that there will be an "open competition" for the starting second base job between 2Bs Danny Espinosa and Anthony Rendon. "And that's all you can say about it at this point. They haven't even taken their first grounder officially yet. But I think that it's good to have competition in spring," Williams said. "It makes guys come into camp ready. There's no favorite at this point. We're going to give them both ample opportunity to become the starter, and we'll see where we go." Espinosa has been in camp for several days, Rendon reported Sunday. Williams said Rendon will also see reps at third base, and Espinosa will also see reps at shortstop and potentially third base.
