The Nationals were expecting big things from second baseman Danny Espinosa this year. Last year, Espinosa hit .247 with 17 home runs and 56 RBI's and was thought to be a big part of the Nationals future. He has been dealing with injuries for most of the season and hasn't been the player he was last year. Espinosa is now with Triple-A Syracuse and he has struggled mightily with them. He has 96 strikeouts in 287 at bats with them, which equates to a strikeout every 2.99 at bats. With Espinosa struggling, the Nats are trying to move him. Bill Ladson of MLB.com is reporting that the Washington Nationals are trying to trade second baseman Danny Espinosa. With Espinosa struggling, a deal appears unlikely. Espinosa has proved that he can play effectively at the big league level, but with his injury problems this year, will he return to that level? That's the big unknown with Espinosa right now and if the Nats do in fact deal him, they will be selling low on the 26-year old Espinosa. In the big leagues this season, Espinosa was hitting .158 with three home runs and 12 RBI's. Espinosa may be a good buy low option for some teams, but a deal still appears unlikely.
