Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa is considered day-to-day after taking a pitch off his right wrist during Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Braves. Espinosa left the game after the fourth inning, staying in for several frames after suffering the injury in the bottom of the second.
Afterwards manager Davey Johnson said that X-rays were negative, but that Espinosa will likely miss a game or two in the team’s next series at Miami.
“Everything right now is pretty sore,” Espinosa said. “It just happened and everything you do right after it happens is going to be sore.”
“It got worse, I thought it would calm down but it just got worse. It started throbbing more, it got more and more swollen and got stiffer, that’s when I decided to come out.”
