Nationals outfielder Denard Span injured his right foot in Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Indians.
Span fouled a ball off his foot in the sixth inning but remained in the game. He needed a shoehorn to put on his shoe after the game.
"I have to see how it feels in the morning. That's usually when it's been sore or the most painful the following morning when I wake up," Span told MLB.com.
The Nationals have a quick turn around following their weekend series with the Indians, and will now have to travel to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies tonight. If his foot is still sore prior to the game, the Nationals will likely elect to give him a day or two to fulling heal. If that is the case the team will likely elect to move Roger Bernadina over to center field and deploy either Steve Lombardozzi or Chris Marrero in left field. However, this does not appear to be anything too serious, so for now fantasy owners should consider Span day-to-day.
