Denard Span is out of the Nationals’ lineup with a knee injury

8 Comments

Nationals center fielder Denard Span exited Sunday’s game with right knee soreness and he’s out of the lineup for tonight’s game against the Blue Jays.

Washington is also without left fielder Jayson Werth, who’s on the disabled list with a fractured wrist, so the Nationals are using Michael Taylor in center field and Tyler Moore in left field.

Span missed the first three weeks of the season recovering from core muscle surgery, but he’s played very well by hitting .314 with five homers and a career-high .859 OPS in 33 games.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
