Nationals | Aaron Hill an option?

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:53:33 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill "makes a ton of sense" for the Washington Nationals in a trade, according to one evaluator without ties to either team. Hill could play second with 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) on the disabled list. Next year with 1B Adam LaRoche having a mutual option, Hill could play second, 2B Anthony Rendon could move to third and Zimmerman could play first.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman placed on DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 11:07:53 -0700

The Washington Nationals have placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list because right hamstring strain.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Espinosa likely will become the everyday second baseman and could hold onto that job for a while depending on how long Zimmerman is out. Espinosa could also see extended time at the position if Anthony Rendon plays well at third base and, given Jayson Werth's knee injury, stays there. Espinosa should help owners in deeper leagues looking for a second baseman or middle infield option.

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a hamstring injury. It is not known how long he will be sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Anthony Rendon likely will move to third base with Danny Espinosa playing most of the time at second base. Owners in deeper mixed leagues should see if Espinosa is available in their leagues, because he should receive regular playing time and produce at the plate.

Nationals | DL returnees suffering power outage

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 13:27:59 -0700

Washinton Nationals OF Bryce Harper, 3B Ryan Zimmerman and C Wilson Ramos have combined for just three home runs in 306 plate appearances since their respective returns from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos and Harper should begin to see a few more balls clearing fences, as they get a few more at-bats and gain confidence and comfort at the plate. Zimmerman's shoulder injury has zapped his power in the past, so fantasy owners should begin to be a little concerned about him going forward.

Fri, 04 Jul 2014 09:53:06 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Ryan Zimmerman has played third base in every game since Bryce Harper returned, and manager Matt Williams said Zimmerman's defense has been acceptable.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman's defense at the hot corner has suffered at times because of a chronic shoulder issue, but as long as his defense remains passable, the Nationals are going to keep his bat in the lineup. Danny Espinosa will continue to struggle to see at-bats.

Zimmerman made strong throws from a three-quarters release point during infield practice at third base.

Fantasy Tip: As was mentioned earlier, Espinosa is the biggest loser with Harper returning from the DL. Unless another regular needs rest, expect Espinosa to stay on the bench in the regular lineup.
