The Washington Nationals want 2B Danny Espinosa to work on his approach at the plate with Triple-A Syracuse. Espinosa went 2-for-21 with an RBI, three walks and 14 strikeouts while on his rehab assignment. "We need for him to get to a place in his mechanics and his approach that allows him to put the barrel of the bat on the ball and to utilize the other skills that he has: power, speed, defense and that type of thing," general manager Mike Rizzo said. "He has to be more consistent and have an approach that allows him to succeed at this level." Rizzo said 2B Anthony Rendon's performance at the big league level won't impact the team's plans for Espinosa.
Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for how long Espinosa might be working down on the farm, meaning Rendon owners shouldn't be worried that he'll lose playing time in the immediate future.

Fantasy Tip: Good news for Anthony Rendon owners. He should have a hold on the second base gig for at least the next few weeks, but there's a good chance it'll be much longer.

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa (wrist) could stay in the minors after his rehab assignment is done, per general manager Mike Rizzo, but that decision hasn't been made yet. Anthony Rendon has played well, and Espinosa needs to work on getting fully healthy and fixing his swing.
Fantasy Tip: Rendon owners would be pleased. It's going to be tough for the Nats to play both consistently without an injury to someone else. Espinosa could be worth a stash in deep leagues if someone ditched him, but getting a payoff will probably require patience.

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa (wrist) played three innings in a minor-league rehab game for Triple-A Syracuse Thursday, June 13, as he makes his way back from a fractured right wrist. Espinosa's wrist felt fine after the outing, manager Davey Johnson said Friday, June 14.

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa (wrist) has already resumed baseball activities and will report to Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, June 13, to play three innings in the first game of a rehab assignment.
Fantasy Tip: It still seems likely that the Nats will give him some time to work out his hitting woes on the farm, given that Anthony Rendon is hitting. The Nats have made it clear that Espinosa is in their plans, though, so it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa may not need surgery to fix his wrist problems, but he'll likely need plenty of time for it to heal on his own. Then, the Nats have indicated that they'd like to get him right down in the minors. It looks like it'll be a while before we'll see Espinosa back at the major league level. Anthony Rendon is the answer at second base for now and likely for the long term. Espinosa can be dropped in all mixed leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa should be away from the Nationals for a while, depending on the severity of his wrist injury and whether he'll need surgery. Anthony Rendon should have plenty of time to prove he's learned from his initial call-up. That makes him a must-add in all formats.

The Washington Nationals placed 2B Danny Espinosa (wrist, shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 4, but it's unknown if it's for his shoulder or wrist. Espinosa could need to have shoulder surgery.
Fantasy Tip: This doesn't look good for Espinosa, who was fighting to overcome a wrist injury much of the season. If he needs shoulder surgery on top of it, there's a good chance he won't be back at all. You can probably drop him in all formats. Anthony Rendon was called up and should see the majority of starts at second base over Steve Lombardozzi.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Espinosa's struggles at second base in Washington are taking their toll. Steve Lombardozzi had been filling in with Espinosa sitting out with a wrist ailment, but Rendon clearly presents the club with the most offensive upside. However, he'll need time to transition from third to second base, so a call-up to D.C. isn't imminent. Still, you'll need to keep a close eye on his progress if you want to snag him in mixed formats when he returns to the bigs.
