Nationals | Danny Espinosa spends time at SS

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa spent more time working at shortstop than second base Thursday, Feb. 20, and manager Matt Williams said Espinosa is in an "open competition" at second base with 2B Anthony Rendon. The team is preparing for Espinosa to be a bench player that can spell both SS Ian Desmond and Rendon. Rendon won't be used as anything more than an emergency shortstop aside from his second base duties.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa seems clearly ticketed for a utility spot for the Nats, which will only make him mildly useful in NL-only leagues or if either Desmond or Rendon suffer a serious injury.
