Danny Espinosa agrees to contract with Mariners

Danny Espinosa has agreed to a Major League contract with Seattle on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Espinosa was released by the Angels only three days ago after slashing an ugly .162/.237/.276 and hitting six home runs in 77 games with Los Angeles this season. The switch hitter can play both second base and shortstop. He most likely will be used as Seattle's main utility infielder supplanting Taylor Motter. Espinosa can hit with power; he hit 24 homers in 2016 with the Nationals. His high propensity to strike out makes him a high risk in all fantasy formats.

Danny Espinosa continues to struggle at the plate

The Angels came out on top of the Rangers 5-2 on Sunday. Danny Espinosa was no help and continues to struggle at the plate. He went 0-for-4 and never touched base.

Fantasy Impact

Espinosa is hitting .170 on the year and has become a liability in this Angels lineup. If things do not change, Espinosa could see his playing time reduced. He is not worth a look in any format at this time.

Danny Espinosa draws a walk on Monday

The Angels won 2-1 over the Blue Jays on Monday. The team has been struggling to put up runs and this game was no different. Danny Espinosa did not help much. He was 0-for-2 with a walk. He also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact

The Angels are averaging just over three runs a game. Only Mike Trout has been consistently performing offensively. Espinosa is not worth a look in fantasy. He's hitting .186 and hits eighth in the lineup. Nothing indicates his numbers will drastically change for the better. He is a career .225 hitter who can hit the occasional HR. He belongs in free agency.

Danny Espinosa strikes out twice on Monday

The Angels could not generate any runs on Monday and lost 3-0 to the Astros. Danny Espinosa hit eighth and touched base once. He finished 1-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Espinosa has very limited value and is not a good fantasy asset in category leagues that account for average or OBP. He has some power though and is a cheap option in DFS. Only consider him in tournaments though, he cannot be trusted for cash games.

Danny Espinosa strikes out twice on Opening Day

The Angels lost 4-2 on Monday and only Mike Trout generated offense. Danny Espinosa hit seventh in the lineup and went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Espinosa is not worth a roster spot in most leagues. He is very inconsistent with a batting average in the low .200. His career OBP is not bad at .302 if you are desperate at that category. He has more value in DFS where he can be a punt option with power. Espinosa hit 24 HR in 2016.
