Danny Espinosa Injury: Nats Second Baseman Has Cortisone Shot, Could Play Wednesday

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa was diagnosed with a bruise inside his shoulder capsule, received a cortisone shot on Monday, and may be available to play on Wednesday. Espinosa said he injured the shoulder on Sept. 8 while diving for a ball and has struggled with it since that point.

Espinosa underwent an MRI on Tuesday and the Nationals were concerned about the test revealing more significant damage, but luckily only the bruise was found.

Now between the diagnosis and the postponed Tuesday game, Espinosa may not miss any time at all.
