Nationals' Danny Espinosa belts fifth home run of the year

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/18/15) Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa went 1 for 3 at the plate in Washington's 10-5 win over the Padres on Sunday.

Espinosa did his damage in the fifth when he crushed an 0-1 pitch from Ian Kennedy over the right field wall for a three-run shot, his fifth of the season.

"I got a good pitch to hit," Espinosa said to MLB.com. "I was trying to look for something I could drive. I got over-aggressive on the first pitch and I told myself to just be patient."

Manager Matt Williams likes the progress he's seen from Espinosa.

"All I know is last year," Williams said. "Last year his head was getting out in front of his body. This year, he is sitting down at the plate a little bit more and he is letting the ball come to him. Anytime you can do that, you have a better chance of having a little bit of success. He loves to play. I love to put him in there. He delivered again today for us."

Espinosa is hitting .275 with 13 RBI in 102 at-bats this season.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa a different hitter from each side of the plate

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/9/15) Although the Nationals' Danny Espinosa is a switch hitter, his left-handed swing is much different than this right-handed one, and it's evident by his power numbers, reports the Washington Post.

Espinosa has worked to make his lefty swings more compact to send the barrel straight to ball, resutling in a better performance from the left side in recent years.

“I’m just trying not to do too much, just trying to stay within myself,” Espinosa said. “I’m just trying not to over-think things, stay in rhythm, hit what’s given to me and not try to create something. Really just trying to stay within myself.”

Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Espinosa has more power from the right side, but because he is a switch-hitter, he gets fewer at-bats from the right side -- part of the reason he’s hit 44 home runs left-handed and 15 from the right side.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa hits 2 homers in win over Braves

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/8/15) Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa hit two home runs during Friday night's 9-2 win over the Braves. 

Espinosa went 2 for 4 and totaled three RBI. He hit a solo homer in the seventh inning and a two-run shot in the eighth. This ended a hitless streak of two games in a row, where Espinosa at least had one at-bat.

It's also the fourth time this season Espinosa has recorded more than one hit in a game. 

Espinosa has garnered more playing time this spring with Anthony Rendon sidelined with injuries. 

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar out of lineup Wednesday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/29/15) Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar is out of the starting lineup again Wednesday with Danny Espinosa taking over the spot, the team announced.

Escobar suffered a hand injury in Monday's game with cuts on his hand when Andrelton Simmons slid into his glove trying to reach third base. Espinosa, who has played second for the majority of the year, will move to third with Dan Uggla drawing another start at second.

Manager Matt Williams said that Escobar is available in an emergency situation, as he was for Tuesday's game. He expects the infielder will be ready to return to his regular role Thursday, the Washington Post reports.

The Nationals are currently the favorites (-110) against Atlanta.

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."
