Nationals Vs. Mets: Danny Espinosa Says He's Fine, David Wright Scratched From Mets Lineup

Steve Lombardozzi is starting for the Nationals at second base tonight in place of Danny Espinosa, who was hit in the head by Ruben Tejada's elbow when the latter was running out a bunt in the ninth inning of Monday's 4-3 Washington loss. Espinosa told reporters Tuesday afternoon that his absence shouldn't be a long-term thing.

In other news from Citi Field ahead of tonight's game, Mets All-Star third baseman David Wright has been scratched from New York's line-up after jamming the little finger of his right hand.

Apparently the jammed finger was affecting Wright's ability to swing in Monday night's game.
