Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Espinosa is out of the lineup Wednesday, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

He has continued to shine at the dish of late, with five homers in his last six games. Not only is he holding the Nationals' presumed shortstop of the future, Trea Turner, at bay in Triple-A, but Turner has actually started playing some center field, suggesting Espinosa could hold regular playing time through the rest of the season, provided he continues to produce. Stephen Drew will start at shortstop and hit seventh Wednesday.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Two more homers in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Espinosa went 4-for-5 with two home runs and six RBI in Sunday's blowout win over the Reds.

The shortstop destroyed Cincinnati pitching over the course of their four-game series, going 7-for-18 (.389) with five homers and 15 RBI. Espinosa's hot streak not only gives him 18 home runs on the season, but it also puts him in the team HR lead, one ahead of Bryce Harper. Espinosa's previous career high is 21 HR in a season, but at this rate, he could pass that mark before the All-Star break.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Blasts two en route to career-high seven RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Espinosa went 2-for-4 with two home runs, including a grand slam, and a career-high seven RBI in Thursday's hammering of the Reds.

Espinosa's second career slam put Washington up 8-1 in the third inning, and his next drive made it 13-1 in the fourth. He ranks second on the team with 15 homers despite usually batting eighth. The switch-hitting shortstop connected off Brandon Finnegan (3-7) batting right-handed, then went deep from the left side against Josh Smith. Espinosa's previous career high for RBI was six, and his only other grand slam came in his fifth major league game on Sept. 6, 2010. With a solid June, he's pushed his average up to .235, the highest its been since the fourth game of the season.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Delivers three hits against Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Espinosa went 3-for-5 with a double, a run, two RBI and a steal Monday against the Mets.

Espinosa looked refreshed following Sunday's day off, picking up his sixth multi-hit performance in the last three weeks. The shortstop has earned his every-day lineup spot with a surprisingly productive bat, as he's already just three short of last season's total of 37 RBI to go along with an identical 13 homers in 43 less games played.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Espinosa is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

This will be just the second day off since May 15 for Espinosa, as the veteran has been able to display durability in addition to bursts of offense in 2016. While he sits for a regular maintenance day, Stephen Drew will draw the start at shortstop in his stead.
