Nationals | Deal Zach Walters

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:14:32 -0700

The Cleveland Indians have received 2B Zach Walters from the Washington Nationals as part of the SS Asdrubal Cabrera deal.

Fantasy Tip: With Mike Aviles the likely replacement at shortstop, Walters or Jose Ramirez will likely be sent to the minors. Aviles gets a huge boost to his fantasy value. He has proven to be a low-end middle infielder in the past. Everyday at-bats make Aviles a viable option in the majority of formats.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman has serious injury

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 06:15:57 -0700

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.

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 | 2B will be matchup-based

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:34:02 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa and Zach Walters will keep splitting time based on matchups and hot-hand plays, according to manager Matt Williams.

Fantasy Tip: This adds shakiness to Espinosa's value, along with the possibility of the Nats adding a more stable 2B, like Aaron Hill.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa sitting

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:09:56 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 25, against the Cincinnati Reds. SS Zach Walters is starting at second base and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Espinosa from your lineups in NL-only formats or deep leagues.

Nationals | Adam LaRoche activated

Sat, 24 May 2014 20:49:17 -0700

The Washington Nationals activated 1B Adam LaRoche (quadriceps) from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, May 24. In the corresponding move, the team optioned INF Zach Walters to Triple-A Syracuse.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche is back just in time for the new week. Barring any setbacks in Sunday's game, it appears safe to plug the slugging left-hander back into the active fantasy lineup.

Nationals | Won't alter power stroke of Zach Walters

Sat, 01 Mar 2014 19:49:38 -0800

Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams said Saturday, March 1, that he will not attempt to alter the power stroke of prospect SS Zach Walters. "I think his stroke is his stroke. It's very difficult to change a tiger's stripes," Williams said. "He has power from both sides of the plate. I think the maturation process is such that as he goes within his career, he'll learn that some home runs come and you can't force them. You can't stand up there and say, 'I'm a power guy, and this is what I do', and get away from your game, whatever it is. So I'd like to see him eventually become a .300 hitter with power."
