Nationals' Yunel Escobar (groin) out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar is not in the lineup Sunday for a second straight day while nursing a groin injury.

Escobar started each of the team's first 11 games at third base, filling in for the injured Anthony Rendon, before sitting out Saturday with the injury. He said before Sunday's game that he's feeling better and he'll practice on the field, per MLB.com. He also indicated that his MRI only showed groin inflammation, and that he hopes to be back in the lineup Tuesday, the Washington Post reports.

Danny Espinosa will draw a second straight start at third base against the Phillies. The Nationals are heavy home favorites (-225) Sunday.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies. Escobar was questionable with a groin injury. He's been replaced by Danny Espinosa, who is batting seventh in the lineup.

Manager Matt Williams said Escobar "felt pretty good" Saturday morning. He will receive an MRI. 

Infielder Emmanuel Burriss is not in the starting lineup for Washington's Triple-A affiliate, Syracuse, leaving open the possibility that Escobar may be placed on the disabled list later today. 

Two other Nationals regulars are out of Saturday's lineup: Catcher Wilson Ramos and left fielder Tyler Moore. Jose Lobaton gets the start at catcher, batting eighth. Clint Robinson is in left, batting fifth.

Nationals' Yunel Escobar hits leadoff home run Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar went 1 for 4 Thursday, leading off the bottom of the first inning with a home run in his team's 5-2 win over the Phillies.

The home run, which was Escobar's first of the season, came off Phillies lefty Cole Hamels. He hit just one of his seven home runs off a southpaw last season. Escobar saw a seven-game hitting streak come to an end Wednesday but was able to immediately turn things around one night later. He's 11 of 39 with five walks over 10 games.

"[Thursday], I felt like I played with the Nationals that I thought all along I'd play with," Escobar said in Spanish after the game, per the Washington Post. "I felt good. I was happy with the team. We were ahead, they tied the game and we didn't lower our heads and kept going. That was essential. That showed that we keep fighting and we've still got confidence, especially against a pitcher like Cole Hamels."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams made a few changes to his batting order Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Williams moved Yunel Escobar from the No. 2 spot in the lineup into the leadoff spot, where Michael Taylor was positioned the first seven games. Taylor dropped to ninth in the lineup Tuesday.

Outfielder Jayson Werth, who made his season debut Monday after beginning the season on the disabled list, moved up from the cleanup spot to second in the lineup. 

Escobar has a .367 on-base percentage through seven games. He has a career .353 on-base percentage in 222 games batting first.
