Yunel Escobar (hand) is back in the Nationals' lineup Monday.

Yunel Escobar (hand) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

Advice: He's missed three straight starts with a sore right hand. The good news is that Escobar played catch Sunday, so he could be back in there shortly. Anthony Rendon is handling third base and Danny Espinosa is at second Sunday.

Yunel Escobar (hand) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

Advice: It's the second game in a row he's missed with a hand injury. Anthony Rendon is filling in at third base. Escobar has posted a surprising .308 average this year in 408 at-bats. That's well above his .279 career average. He's day-to-day.

Yunel Escobar (hand) is out of the Nationals' lineup Friday.

Advice: Escobar had to exit Thursday's contest after being hit on the right hand by a pitch. X-rays came back clean, but he remains sore. Anthony Rendon is handling third base, while Trea Turner is getting his first major league start at second.

Yunel Escobar is considered day-to-day after X-rays on his hand came back negative late Thursday.

Advice: He was lifted from Thursday's game after being drilled by a pitch on his right hand. He was fortunate to avoid any fractures though and should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two once the swelling subsides.

Yunel Escobar was removed from Thursday's game against the Padres after being hit by a pitch on his right hand.

Advice: He will presumably head for X-rays to rule out any structural damage. Danny Escobar replaced him and would see increased action if Escobar is forced to miss an extended period of time.

Yunel Escobar (neck) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Padres.

Advice: Escobar hasn't played since leaving Friday's game with a hyperextended neck. With his return and Denard Span's activation from the DL, the Nationals have their full lineup together for the first time this season.
