Danny Espinosa
Birthdate: 4/25/1987 (27 y, 7 m, 25 d)     Bats/Throws: B/R     Height/Weight: 6-0/205     Position: 2B
Drafted: 2008 June Amateur Draft - Round: 3, Pick: 10, Overall: 87, Team: Washington Nationals
Contract: $0.5M / 1 Years (2014)
RotoWire News: Nationals manager Matt Williams said Tuesday that while Espinosa won't completely give up switch-hitting during spring training, he will attempt to hit right-handed versus some right-handed pitchers to get a feel for the matchup, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports. "I worry about guys that have never done it, getting out of the way of a ball that's thrown up and in from a right-hander," Williams said. "Anybody that's hit righty-righty knows that the ball chases you... He's done it in batting practice, but that's a controlled situation. Once you get in a game it's a completely different deal."
