Nationals' Danny Espinosa able to start Sunday vs. Dodgers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/19/15) Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa was able to start Sunday against the Dodgers after leaving Saturday's game due to cramping in his calves.
"I drink a lot of fluids, but for whatever reason yesterday, it got me," Espinosa said, per the Associated Press. "I was cramping in the sixth inning. I got a base hit as I was going down the line, (I felt) tight."
Espinosa is batting .233 (10 for 43) with one double, two home runs, five RBI, four runs, three walks and 13 strikeouts in 12 July games.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa homers in two-hit game

Nationals' Danny Espinosa gets start at shortstop Thursday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/2/15) The Nationals will start infielder Danny Espinosa at shortstop for Thursday's game at Atlanta, reports MASNsports.com.
He will bat second and replace Ian Desmond, who was given the day off. Over his last 10 games, Espinosa is hitting .194 with two doubles and three RBI.
The Nationals are favored (-180) at Atlanta on Thursday.
|2014 Summary: Because of injuries to Ryan Zimmerman, Danny Espinosa ended up playing more than anticipated in 2014, but unfortunately not well enough to keep the Nationals happy. They replaced him with Asdrubal Cabrera at the trade deadline. In some ways, it was a bounce-back season for Espinosa after he attempted to play through a torn rotator cuff and broken wrist in 2013, but the Nationals were no longer so willing to wait out the debilitating slumps that come with him striking out every third at-bat.|
Playing time status: Espinosa is a good enough defender to remain in the Nationals' plans for 2015 but, as 2014 confirmed, not a good enough hitter to hold-down a full-time role. Even if they don't bring back Cabrera, the Nationals will find someone to at least share second base duties. It won't be Anthony Rendon, though, who's now entrenched at third base with Zimmerman moving to first.
2015 Outlook: Espinosa looked like an emerging 20-20 man as the Nationals' primary second baseman in 2011 and 2012 and showed he still has that kind of potential with eight homers and eight steals in 333 at-bats last year. But his flaws are so glaring that even if he did come into regular at-bats in 2015, he would probably be just an NL-only option.
