Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said that Danny Espinosa will play for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.
Whether Espinosa is actually with the Nationals come the spring is another question entirely. Rizzo floated in early November that the 29-year-old shortstop is a potential trade candidate. While there hasn't been a ton of smoke on the actual trading front as of yet, a move here remains possible. In 516 at-bats last season, Espinosa hit just .209/.306/.378. He did clock a career-best 24 homers in that space, so it wasn't all awful. Dec 7 - 4:24 PM
