      Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa to miss rest of season

      Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa (hamstring) is done for the season, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Mark Zuckerman reports. It will require four weeks of rehab for Espinosa to be able to return from the slight tear of his hamsting, so his season is over. It will be interesting to see what his role is in 2016 with Ian Desmond likely leaving in free agency and Trea Turner and Wilmer Difo seemingly ready to step into significant roles in the middle infield. Espinosa had a .753 OPS against lefties and a .709 OPS against righties while playing above average defense this season.
