Nationals | Danny Espinosa homers in loss

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 20:47:01 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Danny Espinosa swatted a homer Monday, July 6, against the Cincinnati Reds. He finished 2-for-4 with a double and solo home run.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) might play regularly at third base with Yunel Escobar suffering a hamstring injury in the season opener.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa batting sixth Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:38:26 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa was dropped from second to sixth in the batting order for the Sunday, July 5, game against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .185 average (5-for-27) in the past week with 10 strikeouts. Espinosa will lose some fantasy value with the demotion in the batting order, but you should leave him off your roster as a whole because of the horrible slump he is in.

Nationals | Ian Desmond sitting vs. Braves

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:49:59 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. 2B Dan Uggla is playing second base and batting sixth, and 2B Danny Espinosa is batting second and filling in at shortstop against Atlanta Braves SP Manny Banuelos Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is reeling through an extremely disappointing season, and he cannot be started with confidence in daily contests. His year-long value is dwindling, too. Espinosa ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) continues to be a high-risk, high-reward FantasyScore play, but there is upside hitting second. Uggla ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a .696 OPS through 94 plate appearances this season, so he is nothing more than a low-priced flier for daily games Thursday.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa knocks a pair of doubles

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:16:41 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa went 3-for-5 with two runs, two doubles and a RBI during the Nationals' 6-1 win over the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has filled in admirably for Washington, as the club is dealing with a slew of injuries. He has 37 runs, eight home runs and 23 RBI with a .259/.336/.438 slash line, which is nothing to scoff at for a middle infielder. FantasyScore players can target him in favorable matchups, but just note he is quite inconsistent. Through his previous eight games, Espinosa was 3-for-28 without an extra-base hit.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar out Saturday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:58:03 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar (hand) is not in the starting lineup against the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, June 27. INF Danny Espinosa will start at the hot corner and bat third, with 2B Dan Uggla manning second base and batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is sidelined due to a swollen hand, so Espinosa ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will slide over from the keystone position to cover third base. Uggla $1,900, 3.8% of cap) is only batting .231 this month and is not a great FantasyScore option.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar injures hand

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:31:40 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar (hand) was removed from the game early with a hand injury Friday, June 26. 2B Dan Uggla entered the game at second base, shifting 2B Danny Espinosa to the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) appeared to be in quite a bit of pain after being hit by a pitch, but he remained in the game shortly before being removed. The Nats have been decimated by injuries recently, with Anthony Rendon (quadriceps) going on the DL today. Espinosa ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will certainly be an everyday player with Rendon out, and Uggla ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) could become a starter, too, if Escobar's injury is serious. Espinosa is worth adding in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for middle infield depth, but Uggla should strictly be an NL commodity for desperate owners if Escobar goes on the DL, too.

Nationals | Ian Desmond out of lineup

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:20:56 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 23. 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at the 6 and hitting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is worth a peek as a sleeper play at a low cost tonight, as he's hitting .356 (16-for-45) with two of his six home runs from the right side of the plate against lefties in 2015.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar scratched Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 12:54:37 -0700

Washington Nationals INF Yunel Escobar (stomach) has been scratched from the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, June 20, because of a stomach bug. As a result, SS Ian Desmond will start at shortstop and bat seventh, with INF Danny Espinosa, who was originally scheduled to play shortstop, moving over to second base. OF Bryce Harper has been moved up to the No. 3 spot in the batting order, with C Wilson Ramos now batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Escobar ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Desmond ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) only has nine hits in 63 at-bats this month and should be avoided in FantasyScore.

Nationals | Ian Desmond not starting Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 10:04:37 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond remains out of the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, June 20. INF Danny Espinosa will play shortstop and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) finds himself riding the pine for the second consecutive game, so remove him from all fantasy lineups. Espinosa ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been solid at the plate of late, going 11-for-30 (.367) with two RBIs over the last seven days.

Nationals | Ian Desmond sitting vs. Pirates

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 12:25:24 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond is not in the starting line Friday, June 19. 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to replace Desmond ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in their lineups where they're able. To date, his .224/.269/.346 slash line is a considerable let down, and he also isn't stealing bases this season -- just one thus far in 2015. The Nationals have a slew of injuries, and while Espinosa ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been solid (.939 OPS over his past 13 games), it is a tough matchup. Plus, he has been maddeningly feast or famine at the dish this season.
