Washington returns Wilmer Difo to bench against Los Angeles

Washington Nationals infielder Wilmer Difo is out of the lineup on Wednesday.

What It Means:

Difo is the short end of the Nationals' current shortstop platoon, and with a right-hander on the mound Stephen Drew will get the start on Wednesday.

Our models project Difo to hit .252 with 1 home run, 17 runs, 10 RBI, and 4 stolen bases in 154 more plate appearances in 2017.
