Danny Espinosa draws a start Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa will start at second Thursday against the Mets.

Anthony Rendon has started the first two games for the club, but manager Matt Williams has been adamant that Espinosa will see time in the starting lineup. He'll hit seventh against Zack Wheeler.

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.

Danny Espinosa to play regularly
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa will play regularly, according to CSN.

Manager Matt Williams said Espinosa and Anthony Rendon both players will "get ample opportunity to play." Rendon is set to start Monday, but Espinosa could work his way into the starting lineup sooner than expected.

Nationals yet to name starter at second base
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Friday that he's not ready to name a starter at second base, CSNWashington.com reports.

Anthony Rendon, who has hit .344/.421/.500 in 32 at-bats this spring, is the heavy favorite to serve as the regular second baseman. Danny Espinosa is likely ticketed for a utility role.

Danny Espinosa changing approach at plate
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Nationals middle infielder Danny Espinosa, whose production at the plate has never made up for his strikeouts, is taking a different approach with the bat this spring. He is looking to take outside pitches to the opposite field.

"He takes healthy cuts because that's what he does, Matt Williams told Comcast SportsNet. "But (hitting coach Rick Schu) is talking to him about being able to take what they give you a little bit more. Not necessarily cutting your swing down, but taking a little bit of what they're giving you ... and he's working on that."

Espinosa, who is battling Anthony Rendon for the starting job at second base and is also working at shortstop, batted a disturbing .158 last year in losing the position and getting demoted.
