Nationals | Second base job up for grabs

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:15:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Washington Nationals will use 2B Danny Espinsoa, 2B Kevin Frandsen and SS Zach Walters at second base while 2B/3B Anthony Rendon serves as the everyday third baseman with 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) sidelined. Manager Matt Williams said he will not just hand the job over to anyone in particular, and that he has decided the three players will battle it out.

Fantasy Tip: Daily fantasy owners will keep a close eye on the lineups an hour or two before game time. You can get good bargains in salary-cap formats, particularly if Frandsen or Walters are given the nod. They have generally had salary cap figures in the lower tier.

Nationals | Aaron Hill an option?

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:53:33 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill "makes a ton of sense" for the Washington Nationals in a trade, according to one evaluator without ties to either team. Hill could play second with 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) on the disabled list. Next year with 1B Adam LaRoche having a mutual option, Hill could play second, 2B Anthony Rendon could move to third and Zimmerman could play first.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon, Danny Espinosa start

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 21:58:03 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B/3B Anthony Rendon went 1-for-5 with a single and RBI Wednesday, July 23, against the Colorado Rockies. 2B Danny Espinosa made the start at second base, going 1-for-4 with a double, run scored and stolen base.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon and Espinosa each figure to see even more playing with Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list. Rendon, in particular, is very attractive to fantasy owners because of his dual eligibility in both middle and corner infielder spots.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman placed on DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 11:07:53 -0700

The Washington Nationals have placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list because right hamstring strain.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Espinosa likely will become the everyday second baseman and could hold onto that job for a while depending on how long Zimmerman is out. Espinosa could also see extended time at the position if Anthony Rendon plays well at third base and, given Jayson Werth's knee injury, stays there. Espinosa should help owners in deeper leagues looking for a second baseman or middle infield option.

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman is back at third base Monday, June 30, with OF Bryce Harper back from the disabled list and starting in left field. 2B Anthony Rendon is moving back to second base, and 2B Danny Espinosa is on the bench. Zimmerman made strong throws from a three-quarters release point during infield practice at third base.
