  • Espino yielded four runs on four hits and a walk with no strikeouts in two innings versus Colorado on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision. Espino's start was cut short by a weather delay in Colorado, although he wasn't pitching all that well prior to the stoppage. The right-hander's biggest mistake was a three-run home run he allowed to Ryan McMahon in the first inning. Espino has a 4.27 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 92:25 K:BB through 109.2 innings, likely his final numbers this season despite the short start. He's done well enough to be considered for a spot in the rotation in 2022.

  • Espino allowed three runs on five hits over five innings in Friday's loss to the Reds. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision. All three runs against Espino came via the long ball with Max Schrock and Delino DeShields both taking him deep. He had allowed just one run over his previous 11.2 innings but he turned in his first outing of the month without issuing a walk. The 34-year-old righty saw his ERA rise to 4.01 through 107.2 innings this season. Espino is projected to start in Colorado next week.

  • Espino (5-5) earned the win Sunday over Colorado. He threw 5.2 shutout innings, allowing three hits and three walks while striking out seven. The right-hander came up one out short of a quality start, but it was still an excellent showing. Espino has allowed three runs or fewer in five of his last six appearances, although he has only a 2-1 record to show for it. For the year, he's posted a 3.94 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 90:24 K:BB in 102.2 innings across 33 appearances (17 starts). The 34-year-old projects for a tough road start in Cincinnati next week.

  • Espino (4-5) took the loss Monday as the Nationals fell 3-0 to the Marlins, allowing one run on six hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out six. The 34-year-old put together arguably his best start of the season, as he collected his first quality start and lasted six innings for the first time, but unfortunately for Espino, Sandy Alcantara was one-hitting the Nats through eight innings opposite him. Espino will take a 4.18 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 83:21 K:BB through 97 innings into his next outing.

The right-hander was spared the loss as Washington rallied to tie the game in the seventh inning. He's posted a 4.35 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 77:18 K:BB through 91 innings this season, although he's also yielded 16 home runs in 31 appearances (15 starts). Espino lines up for a more favorable road start versus Pittsburgh this weekend.
