Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa underwent MRIs on both his left shoulder and his right wrist  on Wednesday.

On the 15-day disabled list as of Tuesday, Espinosa has a small tear in his rotator cuff from last season and a fractured wrist with bone fragments. He saw a wrist specialist in Baltimore on Wednesday, but the team isn’t ready to make the results public, according to general manager Mike Rizzo.

“We’re just looking for the medical opinions to come in and we’ll have our protocol and we’ll put together how we’re gonna rehab,” Rizzo said.

In other injury news, Triple-A starter Chris Young, who was signed for rotation depth early in spring training, remains on the disabled list at Syracuse with a lower-back injury.
