Player Notes
Yunel Escobar went 1-for-4 with a three-run double in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Advice: Escobar cleared the bases with two outs in the third inning, helping the Nationals close out a 5-0 deficit with a five-run frame. The third baseman played hero on Tuesday, clubbing a walk-off home run and came up big again. In 56 plate appearances, Escobar has two home runs, five RBI, and is batting .275/.339/.451.

Yunel Escobar hit a walk-off solo home run in the 10th inning to send the Nationals to a victory over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Advice: With two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning of a 1-1 game against the Cardinals, Escobar sent a Carlos Villanueva offering over the fence in left-center to end the game. Escobar, who was 0-for-4 prior to the homer, hadn't played since Friday due to a groin issue. He has quietly had a productive start to the season, batting .277/.346/.447 with a pair of home runs.

Yunel Escobar (groin) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Cardinals.

Advice: Escobar ended up missing just two games due to a groin strain. He'll bat sixth against right-hander Lance Lynn as the Nationals are slowly getting back to full strength.

An MRI on Yunel Escobar's groin showed only inflammation.

Advice: Escobar was injured on Friday when he tweaked his groin while running out a ground ball. He'll avoid the disabled list for now, as the hope is that he can work out Sunday and return to the lineup Tuesday after Monday's off day. Danny Espinosa is at third base Sunday.

Yunel Escobar (groin) will undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Advice: Escobar said that he felt okay on Saturday and remains optimistic that he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, but the Nationals want to make sure before making a determination.

Yunel Escobar was removed from Friday's game against the Phillies in the fourth inning with an apparent injury.

Advice: Escobar appeared to come up lame while running out a ground ball in his final at-bat and did not take his place in the field defensively. The team should have an update on his status shortly.
