Nationals | Ian Desmond struggling in the field

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 05:33:01 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond has made seven errors on the young season.

Fantasy Tip: He also made a play deep in the hole Thursday, April 17, and failed to throw the ball to first after his blunders. While this doesn't mean a lot in fantasy, it could earn him a place in the doghouse and time on the pine. 2B/SS Danny Espinosa could be the benefactor.
