Washington Nationals DFS Notes

Paolo Espino gave up one run in one inning of work versus the Mets before rain suspended play. Back-to-back, two-out doubles in the bottom of the first inning meant a run to Espino's line, and he didn't get a chance to go back out there after the skies opened up. Espino did actually stay in to lay down a sac bunt when play was resumed the next day. He'll face the Braves on Sunday.
