Danny Espinosa (2B / SS, WAS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Real Talk Raph - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add In Deeper Leagues and NL Only Leagues

ANALYSIS: The good news is if you currently own Danny Espinosa in any fantasy baseball format, then you are reaping the benefit of the .321 BA, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 4 Runs and 1 Steal he has earned for you in the past 7 calendar days. While he was a forgotten about entity heading into 2014 due to the emergence of Anthony Rendon, and the veteran presence of Ryan Zimmerman, he has seen his stock value balloon recently since Zimmerman has been on the DL with a thumb injury. Since that will most likely keep him sidelined for at least another 2-3 weeks, you may want to consider giving this young switch hitting utility infielder a look to see if he can provide some fluke counting stats, in the absence of the Nationals' full time slugger.
