Nationals | Yunel Escobar out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:02:46 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar (hand) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28, against the Atlanta Braves due to a hand laceration. 2B Danny Espinosa is at third base, while 2B Dan Uggla is at second base.

Fantasy Tip: For Escobar ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) this was an expected move. Espinosa ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) will be a cheap source of production, and Uggla ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) should be avoided with a .135 batting average.

Nationals | Dan Uggla in the starting lineup

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 09:05:30 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Dan Uggla will start at second base Saturday, April 18. 2B Danny Espinosa will be the starting third baseman for the Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Uggla ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season and will enter the game with a .120 batting average. Owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid Uggla until he has more success at the plate.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa starting at keystone

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 13:20:23 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at second base and batting seventh against the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: While Espinosa ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) provides cap relief, opposing starter Cole Hamels doesn't present the best matchup. View Espinosa as a high-risk, high-reward investment for FantastyScore contests Thursday.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa could see early action

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 07:26:10 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa could play second base regularly if 2B/SS Yunel Escobar shifts to third with 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) injured.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa ($2,100, 4.2% of your cap) has some pop that could make him an early gem on FantasyScore when he's in the lineup.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon still has pain

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:20:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 3B/2B Anthony Rendon (knee) said he still can't swing a bat without experiencing pain in his knee. "It's still lingering. There is no point in pushing it right now and going back to square one during the season," Rendon said. "We might as well fix it right now rather than later." Rendon may not be ready for opening day, and 3B Ian Stewart is the leading candidate to fill in at the hot corner if that's the case. Stewart has played regularly this spring with Rendon down, and he has hit .323 with three home runs and four RBI. INFs Danny Espinosa and Kevin Frandsen are other options.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon is a player that is often taken at the tail end of the first round in standard 12-team mixed leagues heading into 2015, and his eligibility at both third and second base are very attractive. Keep an eye on his status as spring training comes to a close. But his minor knee injury really shouldn't cause his draft value to fluctuate much.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa to hit right-handed

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 14:29:29 -0800

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa will hit exclusively right-handed during spring training this year, according to two baseball sources. Espinosa has been a switch hitter since entering the majors in 2010, but he's had way more success from the right side. He has a career average of .271 from the right side and a .213 average from the left side. However, he's had only 13 career at-bats against righties from the right side of the plate. Last year, he hit .301 with three home runs, 10 RBI and a .374 on-base percentage hitting right-handed.

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is considered the leading candidate to open the 2015 season as the team's starting second baseman. The team may also consider 3B Anthony Rendon, if they acquire a third baseman, and the Nationals have also been rumored to be looking outside the organization for a second baseman.
