Danny Espinosa: a future top 5 2B ?

Postby Mr. T » Thu Jan 13, 2011 1:07 am

Any thoughts on Danny Espinosa. He wasn't a big prospect, but showed a little power when he was called up late last year. He is only 23, but he will be the starting 2B for the nats this year. He showed some pop and speed in the minors. I've seen some projections that have him close to a 20/20 guy this year. Is anyone planning to reach for this guy? Anyone see him as a future top 2B?

I don't see him as a TOP 2bagger, but a serviceable one for sure. 15-15 is what I'd expect this year and that is great from a late 2B.

He was a top 100 type prospect last year, that's nothing to scoff at. 20/20 seasons are pretty realistic but he's probably never going to hit for avg. I wouldn't expect power this season. Hamate injuries seem to sap power for a while.
