Danny Espinosa considering batting right-handed exclusively
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Nationals deposed starting second baseman Danny Espinosa is considering shedding switch-hitting and batting right-handed full-time, per the Washington Post.

Matt Williams would not complain if that happened.

"For me, he just gets on top of the baseball, more from the right side than he does from the left side," Williams said. "Something he works on everyday left-handed, but it's naturally a little more on top of the baseball right-handed."

Espinosa, who slugged a three-run homer right-handed Wednesday, owns a weak .184/.243/.294 stat line as a left-handed hitter this year, but is batting .309 from the right side.

Danny Espinosa knocks three-run home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 7-1 win over the Mets Wednesday.

Espinosa had endured a massive power drought before Wednesday, with his last home run coming all the way back on May 12. Due to get spotty playing time after the addition of Asdrubal Cabrera last week, Espinosa owns a .221/.285/.361 line with seven home runs, 25 RBI and seven stolen bases in 285 at-bats.

Zach Walters to split time at second with Danny Espinosa
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Nationals recalled infielder Zach Walters from Triple-A Syracuse Wednesday, and are putting him in the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds.

According to the Washington Post, Walters is likely to see a majority of the playing time at second base against right-handed pitchers as part of a platoon with Danny Espinosa. Walters hit 12 of his 15 home runs in Triple-A from the left side of the plate.

Danny Espinosa absent again from lineup for Game 2
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Matt Williams could be giving Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa a glimpse of his immediate future. He has been benched for the second game of the Saturday doubleheader after sitting out the first. Espinosa could make the pine his permanent spot upon the return of Bryce Harper to the lineup.

Espinosa had started 25 of the previous 27 games.

Return of Bryce Harper could send Danny Espinosa to bench
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Struggling Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa could be the odd man out of the starting lineup when Bryce Harper returns off the disabled list, the Washington Post has speculated.

His presence would push Ryan Zimmerman back to third base and move Anthony Rendon to second, thereby benching Espinosa. Espinosa hasn't earned playing time with a .219/.286/.351 stat line and 91 strikeouts that ranks fifth in the major leagues. He is also hitless in his last 16 at-bats.
