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.

Change in batting stance benefiting Danny Espinosa
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa has rebounded from an awful May to bat .303 with a .370 on-base percentage in 19 June games. Manager Matt Williams told reporters Sunday that Espinosa has widened his stance at the plate, which is allowing him to see pitches better.

"Just simplifying," Espinosa said, per MASNsports.com. "Just continuing to do what started basically at the beginning of this month with (hitting coach) Rick Schu and just working on it diligently everyday and trying to stay with that plan."

Espinosa added he's been a lot more willing to hit for singles as opposed to swinging for the fences.

"Yeah, if it is there and I can take advantage of it to get an inning going or something and get on base where we can score a run," Espinosa said. "If I can steal a base or something like that. Bunt hits is like hitting a single. If I can take advantage of it, then I'll continue to do it."
