Aside from sporting a great mustache, Espinosa would represent an upgrade in the lineup for manager Robin Ventura’s club.

The six-year veteran for the Nationals is hitting .253 on the year, with 8 home runs and 18 driven in. Those 8 long balls match his total from last year in 61 less games. Espinosa is no slouch with the glove either, sporting a career .988 fielding percentage, with only one error in 214 chances manning the second base position so far in 2015.

He would certainly be a better option for a team that is looking to make a run at the post-season spot despite an underwhelming start to the season. That Washington has been moving him around the diamond lately may suggest they do not have a permanent spot for him following former No. 6 overall pick in the draft Anthony Rendon‘s return from injury and therefore may be available in trade talks.
