Washington Nationals OF Denard Span is taking a career-high 20-game hitting streak into Tuesday, Sept. 10, and he's batting .410 with seven extra-base hits, two home runs and five walks during that time. Manager Davey Johnson said Span has been more aggressive lately and more relaxed at the plate. Span's season turned around for the better when hitting coach Rick Schu was brought in in late July. He's also swinging less each day before on-field batting practice, which has kept him fresh. "After (former hitting coach Rick Eckstein) left, Tony told me a few things he had seen over the previous months - and Rick came and kind of developed a routine for me and I've just been sticking to it," Span said. "This is probably the least amount I've swung all year."
Fantasy Tip: Span is hot and comfortable at the dish. You might want to ride him while you can in deep mixed formats.
