Nationals pleased with Espinosa's defense, offense to begin season

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/20/15) Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa ditched batting exclusively from the right side of the plate after experimenting with it during spring training. While he is hitless in five at-bats batting right-handed, he is batting .313 (5 for 16) with one double, two home runs and three RBI batting left-handed.

"Well I just think he's smooth," Nationals manager Matt Williams said, per MASNsports.com. "I think he's recognizing pitches. I think he's got a good approach at the plate. His BPs have been good from both sides really. It's quiet, and it's compact, and that's what he can do when it's right. He's got power from both sides of the plate. It's special talent when it's right, and when he's easing into it, he's got plenty. I like where he's at."

The Nationals are also pleased with Espinosa's defense, as he has played at second and third base to begin the season.

"As a defender, he's about as good as you can get at the major-league level," first baseman Ryan Zimmerman said. "Second and short, obviously, but he's athletic enough to play third base. With the arm he has and the instincts he has, I don't think any of us were really surprised to see him excel over there as well."

Nationals' Yunel Escobar (groin) out of lineup Sunday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/15) Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar is not in the lineup Sunday for a second straight day while nursing a groin injury.

Escobar started each of the team's first 11 games at third base, filling in for the injured Anthony Rendon, before sitting out Saturday with the injury. He said before Sunday's game that he's feeling better and he'll practice on the field, per MLB.com. He also indicated that his MRI only showed groin inflammation, and that he hopes to be back in the lineup Tuesday, the Washington Post reports.

Danny Espinosa will draw a second straight start at third base against the Phillies. The Nationals are heavy home favorites (-225) Sunday.

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 He's been replaced by Danny Espinosa, who is batting seventh in the lineup.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. 

Nationals' Danny Espinosa hits second homer of season

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/17/15) Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa hit his second home run of the season in a 7-2 win over the Phillies Friday night. 

Espinosa connected on a 2-1 pitch from Sean O'Sullivan and sent it over the center field wall. Espinosa finished the game 1 for 3 and drew a walk. 

He's now batting .286/.444/.786 for the season. 

Nationals' Danny Espinosa back to switch hitting

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/15) Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa worked exclusively on hitting right-handed this spring but batted left-handed against a right-handed reliever Saturday against the Phillies, the Washington Post reports.

Espinosa was expected to hit exclusively from the right side this season but will still hit left-handed when he feels comfortable.

"It’s a mutual decision," manager Matt Williams said. "We want him to be free of mind when he gets out there. He hit a lot right-handed in spring, so he’s got experience doing that so if he gets a match-up that he feels comfortable with, righty-righty, he can do that."

Espinosa has struggled from the left side and still managed to work on his lefty hitting this spring despite only hitting righty during games.

"Just kind of in the cages a little bit just to maintain it a little bit because we weren’t 100 percent sure if it would work so it was something that we had to maintain a little bit, and that’s what I tried to do," Espinosa said.

Espinosa went 1 for 4 with a double in Saturday's season debut.
