Advice: He's missed three straight starts with a sore right hand. The good news is that Escobar played catch Sunday, so he could be back in there shortly. Anthony Rendon is handling third base and Danny Espinosa is at second Sunday.

Advice: He was lifted from Thursday's game after being drilled by a pitch on his right hand. He was fortunate to avoid any fractures though and should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two once the swelling subsides.Rotoworld
Advice: He will presumably head for X-rays to rule out any structural damage. Danny Escobar replaced him and would see increased action if Escobar is forced to miss an extended period of time.Rotoworld
Advice: Escobar hasn't played since leaving Friday's game with a hyperextended neck. With his return and Denard Span's activation from the DL, the Nationals have their full lineup together for the first time this season.Rotoworld
Advice: Escobar suffered a hyper-extended neck during Friday's game. He could be ready to go on Tuesday after Monday's off day. The Nats have Danny Espinosa at second base and Anthony Rendon at third.Sun, 23 Aug Rotoworld
Advice: Escobar suffered a hyper-extended neck during Friday's game and is considered day-to-day. Look for his probable return on Sunday.

Advice: Escobar was forced to leave Friday's game against the Brewers after sustaining the injury when he crashed into a railing while chasing down a foul ball. Expect him to get an extra day of rest on Saturday before returning to the starting lineup on Sunday.
