Espinosa leaves game after fouling ball off foot
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa had to leave Tuesday’s game in the top of the seventh inning against the Mets after fouling a ball off his right foot.
It looked like Espinosa was seriously hurt. He had to be carried off the field and into the trainer’s room. There is no official word on how serious the injury is.
Espinosa is expected to be Washington’s everyday second baseman this season. Entering Tuesday’s action, Espinosa was having a solid spring, going 11-for-33 [.333] with two home runs and a team leading 11 RBIs.
