Nationals | Ian Desmond slumping everywhere

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 09:09:32 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond has made six errors in eight games to start the year, and his error Tuesday, April 14, led to three unearned runs in an 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox. He committed 24 errors in 2014 and 20 in 2013. Desmond is also hitting just .200 after he had three hits Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) gaffes in the field may have contributed to his slow offensive start, but three hits last night could be the beginning of him climbing out of this early-season funk. Not many FantasyScore owners are likely to click him Wednesday against Boston Red Sox starter Wade Miley.

Nationals | No extension talks for Ian Desmond

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 04:58:35 -0800

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond still has not discussed a new contract with the team. Desmond is a free agent following the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond is a solid fantasy option at shortstop, with a .255 average and 24 home runs hit during the 2014 season. He could command a massive deal next offseason, so it bears watching where Desmond will go if the team decides to trade him.
