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.
