Nationals | Denard Span hopeful for Saturday

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:27:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (abdomen) was still sore Friday, May 1, after he left the game with abdominal soreness Thursday, April 30, according to manager Matt Williams. Williams noted Span received treatment Friday and could return to the lineup Saturday, May 2, depending on how Span feels.

Fantasy Tip: Span ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be avoided in all fantasy formats until he returns and proves his health in a game. It sounds like that'll happen soon, too. Michael Taylor is playing center field and batting leadoff in place of Span Friday, and Taylor projects to start Saturday, if Span is unable to play. The Nats face Matt Harvey Friday, so Taylor is an ill-advised play in daily contests.

Nationals | Denard Span scheduled to play all nine

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:38:26 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (hernia) is scheduled to play all nine innings with Single-A Hagerstown, according to manager Matt Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Span ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is expected to return in early May, and he'll be a solid FantasyScore option at his price point. However, it would be wise to allow him to play a few games to dust off some rust before utilizing him in daily contests. Expect him to be eased into action, too, with Michael Taylor ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) slowly being regulated to a bench role. Taylor's fleeting value is nearing an end.
