Yunel Escobar, Wilson Ramos, Tyler Moore out of Nationals' lineup
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies. Escobar was questionable with a groin injury. He's been replaced by Danny Espinosa, who is batting seventh in the lineup.
Manager Matt Williams said Escobar "felt pretty good" Saturday morning. He will receive an MRI.
Infielder Emmanuel Burriss is not in the starting lineup for Washington's Triple-A affiliate, Syracuse, leaving open the possibility that Escobar may be placed on the disabled list later today.
Two other Nationals regulars are out of Saturday's lineup: Catcher Wilson Ramos and left fielder Tyler Moore. Jose Lobaton gets the start at catcher, batting eighth. Clint Robinson is in left, batting fifth.
Emmanuel Burriss hoping to rebound in 2015 with Nationals
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/22/15) Infielder Emmanuel Burriss is looking to get back to the majors this season after spending 2013 in the minor leagues. He hit .300 with 22 stolen bases in 116 games for Triple-A Syracuse and thinks if he can stay healthy, he can contribute for the Nationals this year.
"Last year, my main concern was to stay healthy throughout the whole season," Burriss said. "I put in the extra work that was missing. I was in the training room for some of those times. I wanted to make sure my legs were as strong as they could be, get back to moving quickly around the bases. Being able to hit from both sides of the plate helped the team out."
