Angels' Danny Espinosa: Signs one-year deal with Angels, avoiding arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Espinosa agreed to a one-year, $5.425 million contract with the Angels on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The former Washington National will see close to a $3 million pay raise with his new club in 2017. Espinosa had a disappointing final season with the Nationals, slashing .209/.306/.378 with 174 strikeouts. He did, however, mash 24 home runs and drove in 72 runs. Espinosa figures to be the Angels' primary second baseman, which is a position that the club struggled to find production from last year.

Angels' Danny Espinosa: Traded to Angels
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Espinosa was traded to the Angels on Saturday, Josh Norris of Baseball America reports.

Espinosa will head to Los Angeles after playing 779 games with the Nationals over parts of the last seven seasons. He played shortstop in Washington, but with Andrelton Simmons playing that position for the Angels, Espinosa will presumably move to second base. Espinosa hit just .209 last season, but did set career highs with 24 home runs and 72 RBI over 157 games.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Blasts two-run homer in Friday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Espinosa went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Pirates.

His 423-foot shot in the second drove in Ryan Zimmerman, making it a 3-0 Nationals lead at the time. Espinosa has driven in six runs over his last four games, but is only slashing .131/.206/.295 overall in September. However, his power numbers have seen a resurgence in a season in which he's played his highest number of games since 2012, with his 23 round-trippers and 69 RBI both serving as career highs.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Cranks three-run bomb
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Espinosa powered the Nationals' offense Monday, going 1-for-2 with a three-run homer in a 4-3 loss to the Marlins.

The blast was Espinosa's 22nd of the year, but just his second in the last 15 games, a period over which he's hit an abysmal .146/.212/.292 while striking out 21 times in 48 at-bats. The 22 home runs mark a new career high for Espinosa, but his .384 slugging percentage is indicative of some luck in that homer tally and a potential reversion to the mean in 2017.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Back in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Espinosa (personal) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Braves, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

Espinosa flew back to California earlier in the week to be with his wife following the birth of their child, but he's now rejoined the team and will get the starting nod at shortstop Saturday. Espinosa will bat seventh in the order against the Braves' Josh Collmenter.
