It sounds like Denard Span’s concussion is fairly minor (if a brain injury can ever be considered minor).
Span, who was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list on Saturday, told James Wagner of the Washington Post on Sunday morning that he is already feeling much better and hopes to take batting practice Monday. Span last suffered a concussion in 2011 and said this one isn’t nearly as bad. He got an apology text from Braves second baseman Dan Uggla, whom he collided with Friday on the bases.
Span, 30, was 8-for-36 (.222) with five runs and four RBI through 10 games this season.
Steven Souza Jr. got called up from Triple-A Syracuse to provide outfield depth in his absence.
