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.

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 20, because he is getting the day off. 2B Kevin Frandsen is getting the start at third base.
Fantasy Tip: Owners in daily leagues should get Rendon out of their lineups. Rendon should be back in the starting lineup when the team plays again.

The Washington Nationals have acquired SS Asdrubal Cabrera from the Cleveland Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera figures to bat lower in the order with the Nationals, which will potentially hinder his counting stats. A new location could help Cabrera turn his season around, though. He should play the keystone position and should be owned in all NL-only leagues and deep mixed formats. He is worth considering in standard mixed leagues. Danny Espinosa will lose playing time, and the deal likely confirms the seriousness of Ryan Zimmerman's hamstring tear. Any further fantasy contribution from Zimmerman in 2014 should be considered a bonus. Anthony Rendon projects to continue manning the hot corner, which after all, is his natural position.

Updating previous reports, Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) has a Grade 3 hamstring strain, according to two baseball sources.
Fantasy Tip: If the reports are confirmed, Zimmerman is likely done for the season. Anthony Rendon has taken over at third base, but second base has been a platoon of Danny Espinosa, Zach Walters and Kevin Frandsen. Espinosa has the only real value, in NL-only leagues, but the team could address second base at the trade deadline.
