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.

Matt Williams now staying mum on starting lineup
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams will not reveal how he'll employ his lineup once Bryce Harper returns, according to The Washington Post

Williams had previously outlined a situation where Ryan Zimmerman would shift back to third, pushing Danny Espinosa out of the lineup. Harper is expected to see time at all three outfield spots once he returns, which could give Williams more flexibility. It's unclear if Williams will stick with that plan moving forward, or if he has something else up his sleeve.
