The Nationals are considering asking Danny Espinosa to give up switch-hitting.
Espinosa, who is naturally right-handed, has hit .271 with an .804 OPS as a right-handed hitter against left-handed pitching in his career. Meanwhile, he has hit just .213 with a .646 OPS as a left-handed hitter against right-handed pitching. That doesn't mean that those numbers will automatically translate if he becomes a full-time right-handed hitter, but it's worth a shot for someone who has gone from a starting second baseman to a bench player.
