Latest Update Denard Span steals 27th base Thu Aug, 21, 10:13 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.
Span is now slashing .350/.369/.438 with six extra-base hits, two RBI, nine stolen bases and six steals over 80 August at-bats as he continues to be a solid contributor atop the Nationals lineup. Until he cools off, Span is a must-start in all fantasy formats, especially while he is racking up the stolen bases as he is now in the top 10 in the category in the National League.

Although he hasn't hit for much power, he has managed to long 40 extra-base hits on the year, which is rather impressive from a leadoff hitter. Analyst: Matthew Beck
