Latest Update Span doubles, drives in two runs in loss Fri Aug, 01, 06:31 AM
Excels as a table-setter and scores lots of runs. Has gap power and the ability to stretch doubles into triples. Can cover the ground in center field.
Flaws: : Lacks power, so he is reduced to leadoff or bottom-of-the-order duties in the majors. Can be a little bit too injury-prone, especially with his legs.
Span is now 10-for-25 (.400 BA) with three RBI, five runs scored and three stolen bases over his last seven games as he remains a solid fantasy contributor while sitting atop the Nationals lineup. Barring an injury, there is little fantasy owners should worry about when dealing with Span, considering he has been getting on base at a high clip all year (.349 OBP).Analyst: Matthew Beck
Span has now hit safely in seven of his last eight games, while riding a .426 average with nine runs scored and five stolen bases since returning from the All-Star break. The Nationals leadoff hitter is not going to provide much power (1 HR and 21 RBI), but is a solid contributor in both runs scored (66) and stolen bases (20) as long as he continues to get on base at a solid clip (.348 OBP).Analyst: Matthew Beck
Span has been on fire of late having 20 hits in his last 43 at-bats for a .465 average, including recording back-to-back four-hit performances. The Nats have the top offense in baseball this month and with Span's improved production atop that lineup he is a must start going forward.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Span continues his hot month of July where he has hit .357 with 14 runs scored. Overall his average has risen to .282 on the season which is right inline with his career average. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
