Denard Span is not in the Nationals lineup on Monday. Span says he's got a deep bruise on top of right foot. Has fouled 3 balls off it, including yesterday.
Span injured his foot yesterday when he fouled a pitch off of it. The foot has been a problem for Span throughout the season, and Washington has elected to give him at least one day off to recover. Considering the importance of Span's speed to his game, the Nationals may elect to give him more time off to rest his ailing foot.
