Profile: With Ian Desmond out of the picture, Danny Espinosa received more playing time last year than he had since 2012, knocking in a career-high 24 home runs in 157 games. Unfortunately, the rest of Espinosa's offensive shortcomings stuck around -- Espi's average fell to .209, he continued to strike out in about 30% of his plate appearances, and his 9 stolen bases were a far cry from the 20 he swiped back in 2012. With the emergence of Trea Turner, though, and the Nationals' trade for Adam Eaton, Espinosa was set to ride the bench once again -- until he was sent to the Angels in December. Espinosa looks likely to slot in as the Angels' 2B, where he should continue to hit a respectable number of home runs and strike out a lot, possibly with slightly lower R/RBI totals in the Angels' weaker lineup. He might have some value as a backup MI, but have a plan to offset his Mendoza-esque average if you start him. (Brice Russ)

The Quick Opinion: Espinosa finally played a full season last year, but got shipped to Anaheim after his starting role with the Nats vanished. He's not without value, but his solid pop doesn't make up for what will likely be a distressingly low batting average.
