Nationals | Yunel Escobar to miss another game

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 09:36:20 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Yunel Escobar (hand) is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Sunday, Aug. 30. 3B Anthony Rendon will start at third base, while 2B Danny Espinosa will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for Escobar's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) return, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .220 this month and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar still out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 13:32:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar (hand) is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Saturday, Aug. 29. 2B Anthony Rendon will start at third base, while 2B Danny Espinosa will start at second base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for Escobar's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) return, so owners should continue to monitor his recovery. Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has three hits and three RBI in his last seven games, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa grabs rare start in OF

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:23:35 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is starting in left field and batting sixth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: With Denard Span (hip) out for the season, Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could find an avenue to extra playing time in left field, if he can handle himself defensively. Michael Taylor ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will also continue to see semi-regular at-bats. Espinosa is a viable value play at FantasyScore Friday.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar still out

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 09:50:21 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar (head, thigh) is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Sunday, Aug. 23. 3B Anthony Rendon will start at third base and is batting second, while 2B Danny Espinosa will start at second base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor the situation to see when Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .231 with two home runs and four RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar exits game early

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 17:23:06 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar (head, thigh) left the game against the Milwaukee Brewers during the first inning Friday, Aug. 21, after suffering an apparent injury chasing a foul ball down the left-field line. Escobar bumped the wall with his left thigh as the ball dropped on the warning track and his head jerked back when it made contact with a fan's chest. He was examined by manager Matt Williams and a trainer before eventually being escorted towards the dugout. 2B Anthony Rendon moved over to play the hot corner, with INF Danny Espinosa entering the game to play second base.

Fantasy Tip: No update was immediately available on Escobar's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) condition. Check back for more information on his status.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa sticks in two-hole

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 16:03:50 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at second base and batting second against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Wednesday, Aug. 19. 2B Anthony Rendon is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) had a large day in the first game of the series, as he went 3-for-5 with two runs, two doubles and two RBI. He remains a solid FantasyScore option Wednesday, especially with the game being played at Coors Field. Rendon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) might be the largest bust in fantasy baseball this season, and he hasn't even received a chance to kick-start a strong finish in Colorado through two games.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon sitting down at Coors

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 14:36:15 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. 2B Danny Espinosa is playing second base and batting second against Colorado Rockies SP David Hale Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Rendon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) from your lineups in all formats. FantasyScore players can consider Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) for contests. He carries an affordable cap hit, and the game is at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Plus, Espinosa has two home runs over his past eight at-bats.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa gets first pinch-hit homer

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 05:04:09 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa hit his first career pinch-hit homer Saturday, Aug. 15, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has homered in back-to-back games, going a combined 2-for-5 at the plate. Before this Espinosa hadn't homered since July 11, and he's a risky FantasyScore choice.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon given day off

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 16:27:19 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at second base and hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) qualifies as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore tonight against the struggling Cain. Keep in mind, though, that Espinosa is only hitting .232 (55-for-237) against righties, but he does have eight of his 10 home runs against them.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon sitting vs. Rockies

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 12:47:41 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 7. 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at second base and batting second against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is 10-for-35 with three runs, two doubles and a home run over his past 40 plate appearances, so things are pointing in the right direction for him. Espinosa ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) jumps out as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Friday. He has a .271/.346/.400 slash line against lefties this season.
