There has been rumors lately that Danny Espinosa has been playing hurt, and these just seem to be rumors as some try to explain how Espi is hitless in the entire Spring with just 1 walk and today he is replaced by Brendan Ryan in the revised line-up and listed as a bench reserve.
This Tweet is a little out-dated at Trea Turner has started to step it up and of course he had a hit taken away on an infield single later changed to an error that was mind-boggling as the 2nd baseman had to charge the ball and speed kills as Trea just beat the throw to 1st. There was no booting the ball or a bobble.
Officially Espinosa is 0 for 14 with 7 strikeouts and 1 walk. Trea Turner now has 3 hits going 3 for 17 with 4 walks and 4 stolen bases
however we really want to make it right and say 4 for 17 but can’t.
Danny Espinosa now 0-11 with 5 K. Trea Turner now 1-11 with 1 HR, 3 BB, 4 RBI, 2 SB. Who should start at SS? pic.twitter.com/4SFHnx6NRK
