Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar posts perfect day at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar went a perfect 5 for 5 at the plate in Washington's 6-4 win over the Marlins on Monday.

Escobar collected five singles, including the go-ahead two RBI in the eighth inning off of Bryan Morris, scoring Tyler Moore and Denard Span.

"He doesn't get outside himself," manager Matt Williams said after the game, per MLB.com. "He understands situations. He understands what's needed in that given at-bat. He's got an idea of what the pitcher is going to do. He studies the hitters before him and simply has an approach when he goes up there. Those kinds of at-bats are at-bats that prolong innings. They get you wins like they did tonight."

Escobar boosted his average to .311 with seven RBI in 90 at-bats this season.

Nationals' Rendon likely to shift to second base upon return
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals' infielder Anthony Rendon, who is currently rehabbing from a knee surgery suffered in spring training, may not return to third base when he makes it back to Washington's lineup. Yunel Escobar is expected to stay at the hot corner, while Rendon moves over to second base, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Escobar has committed just one error in 19 games at third this season, and has said he is more comfortable at third than second. Meanwhile, Rendon has played over 100 games at second in his career, and the move from third should take some pressure off of his knee.

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar out of lineup Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar is out of the starting lineup again Wednesday with Danny Espinosa taking over the spot, the team announced.

Escobar suffered a hand injury in Monday's game with cuts on his hand when Andrelton Simmons slid into his glove trying to reach third base. Espinosa, who has played second for the majority of the year, will move to third with Dan Uggla drawing another start at second.

Manager Matt Williams said that Escobar is available in an emergency situation, as he was for Tuesday's game. He expects the infielder will be ready to return to his regular role Thursday, the Washington Post reports.

The Nationals are currently the favorites (-110) against Atlanta.
