Paolo Espino Loses Eighth Game Tuesday

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino remained winless on the season when he took the loss in the 8-2 defeat to the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. Espino allowed four earned runs on five hits (two homers) while walking none and striking out five in five innings pitched. The 35-year-old right-hander gave up back-to-back home runs to Orlando Arcia and Ronald Acuna Jr. in the fifth inning. In 41 appearances (18 starts), Espino has a 4.30 ERA (4.54 FIP), a 1.31 WHIP and a 92:22 K:BB in 113 innings pitched for the Nationals in 2022. There's a good chance that he won't have another chance to pick up his first win of the season before the end of the year.

Paolo Espino Closes Season With Short Outing

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino pitched poorly in a rain-shortened outing Wednesday, allowing four runs on four hits and a walk in two innings. He did not strike out a batter, and was fortunate to take a no-decision. It's a disappointing final appearance of 2021 for Espino, who had rounded into form with three consecutive strong performances down the stretch. Espino figures to have a shot at the rotation next season, though fantasy managers do not need to prioritize him come draft day.

Paolo Espino Solid Again In No-Decision Friday

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino was solid again Friday, as he allowed three runs on five hits and no walks to the Cincinnati Reds in five innings. He struck out two batters and took a no-decision in the 8-7 extra-inning loss. Espino has now allowed three earned runs or less in 15 of his 18 starts this season, though he has just one quality start to his name. The lack of length makes Espino hard to roster in fantasy, but he's a solid innings-eater, and could be a floor option in 2022.

Paolo Espino Delivers Another Fine Outing

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino was once again very good Sunday against the Colorado Rockies, as he turned in 5 2/3 innings without allowing a run. He gave up three hits and three walks while striking out seven, and was pulled one out shy of what would have been his second consecutive quality start. Espino earned a victory in the contest, improving his record to 5-5. He has a 3.94 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season with 90 strikeouts in 102 2/3 innings. He makes for a solid streamer in good matchups, though time is running out this season.

Paolo Espino Earns First Quality Start Of The Season

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino spun his first quality start of the season Monday night against the Miami Marlins, though he still took the loss, dropping his record to 4-5. Espino allowed one run on six hits and three walks with six strikeouts in six innings, managing to work his way out of several jams. Espino lines up for another favorable matchup against Colorado at home later in the week, making him a solid streaming play.

Paolo Espino Disappoints Tuesday

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino gave up five runs on seven hits and two walks to the Atlanta Braves in five innings Tuesday. He struck out seven batters, which ties his season-high, but this outing still registers as a disappointment for the right-hander. Espino had allowed three runs or less in three straight starts before this one, and he still is yet to record a quality start this year. With a 4.35 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 77 strikeouts in 91 innings, he has very little use in fantasy leagues.

Paolo Espino Whiffs Five Phillies In No-Decision Thursday

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino delivered another decent start versus the Phillies on Thursday as he allowed just two earned runs across 5 1/3 innings. Espino collected five strikeouts in his latest serviceable outing for the rebuilding Nats. The 34-year-old journeyman is yet to complete six innings as a starter, so he's on the fringes of fantasy relevancy despite posting a solid 1.15 WHIP across 86 innings this year as a starter and reliever. That's where the positives end, though, as he doesn't pitch deep into games and won't rack up K's as he's sporting just a 19.7% strikeout rate. Espino should be avoided in fantasy in his next start at the Braves.

Paolo Espino Shuts Down Mets

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino was excellent Friday night, allowing just one run on three hits and no walks in five innings to the New York Mets. He struck out seven batters and earned his fourth victory of the season. Espino has yet to record a quality start this season, but this may have been his finest showing. He now has a 4.17 ERA and 1.17 WHIP for the year, but remains off the fantasy radar.

Paolo Espino Dealt Fourth Loss

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino took his fourth loss of the season Sunday against the Atlanta Braves, allowing five runs on eight hits and two walks in four innings. He struck out three batters. Home runs were the big problem in this one, as he gave up three long balls for the second time this year. Espino has a decent 4.12 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, but his 52 strikeouts in 71 1/3 innings keep him off the fantasy radar.

Paolo Espino Gives Up Season-High Six Runs

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino had his worst start of the year against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, giving up six hits on eight runs and a walk in five innings. He struck out three batters. Espino had previously been quite successful, never giving up more than three earned runs in an outing. Despite his consistency, Espino's lack of strikeouts (49 in 66 1/3 innings) limits his fantasy utility. There's no need to roster him.
