With the Nationals giving shortstop Ian Desmond the day off Thursday, the team turned to infielder Danny Espinosa to start at shortstop and bat second at Atlanta, reports MASNsports.com.

Desmond is hitting .158 with two home runs and five RBI in his last 10 games. He was given the day off Thursday to correct a mechanical flaw in his swing. 

"We're trying to create a little bit of different muscle memory," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "I think he's back to where he wants to be with regard to where his hands are when he starts [his swing], which will allow him to have a better path to the baseball.

"So today we're giving him a day because he's working extra. Today is a day for him to get that work done."

The Nationals are favored (-180) at Atlanta on Thursday.

News
Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann has been outstanding in his last two starts, tossing 15 2/3 scoreless innings. He has struck out nine and not issued a walk in that span.

"I had a good curveball the last two starts and felt like I could throw it when I wanted to, where I wanted to, any count," Zimmermann told reporters, per MASNsports.com. "Keep them off balance, just pound the zone, let those guys behind me play defense."

Manager Matt Williams said having solid command of his offspeed pitches has allowed Zimmermann's fastball to be more effective.

"The ability to throw a breaking ball behind in the count, early in the count," Williams said. "Had a good feel for his curveball tonight, especially against their lefties. The ball was down in the strike zone. If he can do that, then he can get a lot of swings and misses down on the breaking ball, which he got tonight."
