Nationals' Wilmer Difo: Thrust into action Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Difo is starting at second base and batting sixth Tuesday against the Braves, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Daniel Murphy was a late scratch with hamstring tightness, so Difo will slide into the lineup in his place. Murphy missed some time near the end of last season when a hamstring injury cropped up, so Difo could be in line for increased playing time down the stretch if the Nats decide to play it safe with Murphy.

Nationals' Wilmer Difo: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Difo is out of Saturday's lineup against the Brewers, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

The Nationals won't be able to find everyday at-bats for Difo down the stretch, as they are now healthy in the infield, so in order for him to start, another regular has to sit. He is hitting .337/.374/.467 with one home run and four steals over his last 92 at-bats.

Nationals' Wilmer Difo: Swats fifth homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Difo got the start at second base Wednesday, going 2-for-4 with a solo home run.

Nats manager Dusty Baker is making good on his promise to keep Difo in the lineup on a regular basis as a super-utility player now that Trea Turner is back off the DL, but Difo's hot bat is making that decision an easy one. The 25-year-old has hit safely in eight straight games and 25 of 28 in August, pushing his OPS on the year up to .749.

Nationals' Wilmer Difo: Drawing start in right field Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Difo will start in right field and bat eighth Tuesday against the Marlins, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

With the Nationals activating Trea Turner (wrist) from the 60-day disabled list and reinserting him into the lineup Tuesday, Difo's stint as the team's everyday shortstop is over, but he won't necessarily be on the outs for a regular role. According to Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post, manager Dusty Baker said he wants to find Difo as many at-bats as possible prior to the postseason, even if it means deploying the 25-year-old in the corner outfield more frequently. Along with Difo, Michael Taylor, Jayson Werth, Howie Kendrick, Alejandro De Aza and Adam Lind are also bidding for at-bats in the outfield, so Difo will need to continue to hit well in order to earn steady starts.

Nationals' Wilmer Difo: Gets day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Difo is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Difo has started the last 22 games at shortstop, slashing .310/.356/.440 with two homers and three stolen bases over that stretch, so he'll head to the bench for a much deserved breather Saturday. In his place, Adrian Sanchez is starting at shortstop and batting second.
