X-rays on Yunel Escobar's left hand and wrist came back negative.

Advice: It's certainly good news, but the infielder is still set to undergo an MRI and it's possible that he could have ligament damage. He'll have that exam on Thursday, at which point an update on his status should be available.

Advice: Escobar hurt the wrist on a check swing, tried to stay in but then exited after still feeling pain after a foul ball. He injured his other wrist in a similar fashion last month. The Nationals should have more on Escobar later Wednesday.
