Nationals | Danny Espinosa to work on approach

The Washington Nationals want 2B Danny Espinosa to work on his approach at the plate with Triple-A Syracuse. Espinosa went 2-for-21 with an RBI, three walks and 14 strikeouts while on his rehab assignment. "We need for him to get to a place in his mechanics and his approach that allows him to put the barrel of the bat on the ball and to utilize the other skills that he has: power, speed, defense and that type of thing," general manager Mike Rizzo said. "He has to be more consistent and have an approach that allows him to succeed at this level." Rizzo said 2B Anthony Rendon's performance at the big league level won't impact the team's plans for Espinosa.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for how long Espinosa might be working down on the farm, meaning Rendon owners shouldn't be worried that he'll lose playing time in the immediate future.
