Playing regularly helping Danny Espinosa's timing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa collected a season-high three hits Sunday against the Cardinals, raising his season average to .313. It also came a day after he hit his first home run.

Espinosa is off to a promising start a season after being demoted to the minors.

"I’m happy for him, because I’ve been that guy," manager Matt Williams said, per The Washington Post. "So I know the dedication that it takes to work back and be the player he wants to be. And so far, he’s been really good. His approach is good, his intensity is good, his attitude’s fantastic, and he loves to play. So I’m happy for him."

Espinosa has moved his way into the starting lineup due to Ryan Zimmerman's thumb injury forcing Williams to play second baseman Anthony Rendon at third base.

"I’m just trying to help the team and do my part," Espinosa said. "We’re missing a couple key guys in our lineup. I’m just stepping in and trying to do my part so we can be successful this season and hopefully make a playoff run. When you play every day, obviously your timing is a lot better. When you’re facing 96 every single guy out of their ‘pen, if you’re getting one at-bat, it looks like 106. You can’t really slow it down. But more at-bats does help your timing."

Danny Espinosa drawing trade interest, unlikely to be dealt
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa is still drawing interest from "a lot of teams," but the Nationals aren't expected to trade him, MLB.com reports.

Epinosa could potentially man second base in 2015, with Anthony Rendon moving to third base and Ryan Zimmerman shifting to first base. He made the 25-man roster as a bench player this season. Espinosa is looking to rebound from a disappointing 2013 season in which he hit .158/.193/.272 in 158 at-bats at the major-league level.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
