Nationals | Denard Span's swing not right
Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (foot), who isn't in the lineup Monday, June 17, after fouling another pitch off his foot, said the reason he's fouled a ball off his foot three times in two and a half months is because his swing isn't right. He said he's "getting around the ball" when he swings, meaning he's straightening his arms early in his swing. Manager Davey Johnson thinks Span's mechanics are fine and that he just needs better timing. Span is hitting only .256 with a .312 on-base percentage, 25 and 41 points below his career averages. Span is hoping to return Tuesday, June 18, after receiving treatment on his foot.
