Latest Update Danny Espinosa blasted a three run home run in the sixth inning and the Nationals went on to beat the Mets 7-1 at Nationals Park on Wednesday. Wed Aug, 06, 11:57 PM
Can play all over the infield, and has worked hard on his defense to become solid with the glove. Displays good power and speed for the big leagues.
Flaws: : Strikes out far too much and generally lacks consistency at the plate, which hurts his playing time in Major League Baseball. Needs to make adjustments.
The Nationals plan on moving their new addition to second base, meaning the struggling Espinosa will kind himself back on the bench on most days. Barring an injury to one of the team's middle infielders, there is no reason Espinosa should be owned outside of extremely deep NL-only formats at this time. Analyst: Matthew Beck
The Nats will keep Anthony Rendon at third base, but will opt to go with Zach Walters and his power potential and upside over the struggling bat of Espinosa. Depending on how Walters performs, Espinosa could head back to the bench more often than not.Analyst: Howard Bender
As expected with Ryan Zimmerman landing on the DL. The Nationals will go back to their previous lineup configuration with Espinosa at second and Anthony Rendon at third, so while Zach Walters was brought up, Espinosa figures to see a big increase in playing time.Analyst: Howard Bender
