Nationals center fielder Denard Span will be sidelined through the All-Star break because of lingering back spasms.
Since Bryce Harper’s infamous lineup omission of 2014, Denard Span has been an All-Star-caliber center fielder. Something changed. Mike Rizzo explains.
General manager Mike Rizzo broke the news that Jayson Werth, Anthony Rendon and Denard Span will begin the 2015 season on the disabled list.
Denard Span underwent surgery Monday morning to repair a “right core muscle injury,” the Nationals announced, and start the season on the DL.
The Nationals have reportedly exercised Denard Span’s $9 million option, according to Adam Kilgore, ensuring he’ll remain in center field in Washington through the 2015 season.
Even with the NL East already won, the end of the regular season is turning into a logistical headache for the Washington Nationals.
Denard Span made a highlight reel catch to save a potential triple in the third inning, causing Tanner Roark to shake his head in disbelief.
With a versatile lineup that can generate offense in so many different ways, the Washington Nationals definitely look like a dangerous team come October.
We already knew Nationals closer Rafael Soriano has a personal massage therapist, but Monday night we learned he pays for to have those massages travel with him and the club.
With Denard Span’s 36-game on-base streak now over, let’s explore how absolutely ridiculous it was.
