Latest Update Denard Span is not in starting lineup for game two of Saturday's double header. Sat Jun, 28, 05:10 PM
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.
Jayson Werth who sat out the first game of the doubleheader is back in the lineup manning right field. Nate McLouth will slide over and play center in Span's absence. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Span has been hitting the ball well of late, with Thursday's performance being his fifth multi-hit game over a 10 game stretch. He is now hitting .268 with a homer, 19 RBI, 46 runs scored and 13 stolen bases through 299 at-bats and should continue to be a fantasy asset as long as he can maintain his .312 on-base percentage the rest of the way.

Span is now 10-for-25 (.400) with five extra-base hits, three RBI, three runs scores and three stolen bases over his last seven games. Although he isn't going to provide much power, Span is going to be a solid asset in both the runs scored and stolen base categories as long as he continue to get on-base at a respectable rate (.318 OBP).Analyst: Matthew Beck
After going hitless in five games heading into Tuesday, Span has now logged four hits over his last two games, while adding three stolen bases. Although he isn't going to give you much outside of the runs and stolen base categories, Span is going to be a solid complimentary outfielder to deploy the rest of the way, especially now that the Nationals starting lineup is almost at 100 percent. health.
