Latest Update Danny Espinosa in Wednesday lineup with Ryan Zimmerman likely headed to the DL Wed Jul, 23, 01:12 PM
Is an offensive middle infielder, with both base-stealing speed and home-run power. Switch-hits and can play shortstop as well as second base.
Flaws: : Strikes out a bit too much and generally lacks consistency at the plate. Also lacks a bit of defensive polish, especially to play every day in the bigs.
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
Espinosa has been the forgotten man since Ryan Zimmerman shifted back into the infield, but he made the most of his opportunity on Monday logging his first multi-hit game since June 22. He is now sitting on a .215 average with six homers, 19 RBI and six steals through 256 at-bats, which is not going to win him any extra playing time, so he should continue to be avoided in all league formats.

Wow, did not realize it has been that long since Espinosa started a game for the Nationals. He has really struggled to hit, which is why he hasn't gotten much playing time.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Kevin Frandsen will once again be playing second base for the Nationals. Frandsen went 0-4 in game one of the doubleheader.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
