Danny Espinosa belts eighth home run of the season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/25/14) Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa belted his eighth home run of the season Sunday against the Giants.

Espinosa entered the game in the seventh as a pinch-hitter. He singled in the seventh and took Juan Gutierrez deep for a two-run home run in the eighth inning. He finished 2 for 2 with a run scored and two RBI in a 14-6 victory. He is hitting .219 with eight homers and 27 RBI over 302 at-bats.
Danny Espinosa considering batting right-handed exclusively
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/7/14) Nationals deposed starting second baseman Danny Espinosa is considering shedding switch-hitting and batting right-handed full-time, per the Washington Post.

Matt Williams would not complain if that happened.

"For me, he just gets on top of the baseball, more from the right side than he does from the left side," Williams said. "Something he works on everyday left-handed, but it's naturally a little more on top of the baseball right-handed."

Espinosa, who slugged a three-run homer right-handed Wednesday, owns a weak .184/.243/.294 stat line as a left-handed hitter this year, but is batting .309 from the right side.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/14) Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 7-1 win over the Mets Wednesday.

Espinosa had endured a massive power drought before Wednesday, with his last home run coming all the way back on May 12. Due to get spotty playing time after the addition of Asdrubal Cabrera last week, Espinosa owns a .221/.285/.361 line with seven home runs, 25 RBI and seven stolen bases in 285 at-bats.

Zach Walters to split time at second with Danny Espinosa
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/25/14) The Nationals recalled infielder Zach Walters from Triple-A Syracuse Wednesday, and are putting him in the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds.

According to the Washington Post, Walters is likely to see a majority of the playing time at second base against right-handed pitchers as part of a platoon with Danny Espinosa. Walters hit 12 of his 15 home runs in Triple-A from the left side of the plate.  

Danny Espinosa absent again from lineup for Game 2
