Washington Nationals shortstop Yunel Escobar will not start Saturday against the Milwaukee Brewers after hyperextending his neck Friday night, according to the team's official website. Escobar was removed from the game after sustaining the injury in the first inning when he collided with the wall and a fan while attempting to catch a fly ball that dropped on the warning track. Manager Matt Williams said after the game that Escobar;s neck was merely sore and not seriously injured. "He ran into a fan trying to catch that ball. As he went to reach for it, he kinda leaned over with his upper body," Wiliams told ESPN. "The fence caught him at the waste and hyperextended his neck a little bit. So he's a little sore. We'll see how he is tomorrow. For now, he's day to day." Danny Espinosa will start at shortstop Saturday.
