Nationals GM Mike Rizzo wants Danny Espinosa in the lineup more.
Bryce Harper got Washington started with his 26th home run, and Danny Espinoza subsequently added a three-run shot to propel the Nationals to a 7-4 victory Saturday night.
Matt Williams says the reason for Danny Espinosa’s offensive reawkening is complicated. That’s true.
“Whenever he hits a home run left-handed, he kind of points to the press box and says, ‘How dumb are you?'”
Bryce Harper and Danny Espinosa each hit 2 HR to power the Washington Nationals past the Atlanta Braves 9-2 on Friday night.
By the time Danny Espinosa hit his two-run homer in the eighth inning, there were only a couple of hundred fans left in the ballpark.
Here’s what you may have missed, or if you didn’t, what’s worth re-reading this week (June 3-7).
It’s a lot of information to digest, but with the Nationals sending Espinosa to the DL, designating Henry Rodriquez and Zach Duke for assignment, and recalling Anthony Rendon, and calling up Ian Krol, a shakeup is evident in Washington.
Nats GM Mike Rizzo supported Davey Johnson’s decision to bench Danny Espinosa during his weekly radio show Wednesday, saying the second baseman is “in a little bit of a funk right now” and could use a couple days off.
Nationals manager Davey Johnson says he’ll sit Danny Espinosa the next two games, replacing him with Steve Lombardozzi at second base as the team wraps up its series with Atlanta.
