Denard Span was able to swing a bat for the first time since abdominal surgery on March 9. Span was able to swing a fungo bat in the batting cage with no reported problems.

It's pretty easy to fill a majority of your outfield slots in the top half of a draft, if not all of them. For that reason, Span isn't necessarily someone you're likely to target later in drafts. If you're filling your outfield early, you're better off taking an outfielder with upside in the range Span is going. Someone with upside has the chance to usurp time in your lineup from one of the outfielders you drafted early, while Span is a guy you only use when one of your starters is out of the lineup. Guys going just after Span include Khris Davis and Steven Souza who have much more upside. If you're looking for someone to be in your lineup everyday late in your draft, Span is an option. But most likely you should be taking on a little more risk at that point. Analysis: Brett Talley
