Denard Span records second straight 4-hit game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Nationals outfielder Denard Span continued his absurdly hot hitting Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Reds.

Span put together his second four-hit game in a row Friday, as he went 4 for 5 at the top of the lineup. Span scored once and drove in one run, his second game in a row with an RBI as well.

Denard Span racking up extra-base hits


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Nationals center fielder Denard Span ranks third in the NL with 28 doubles and is on pace to shatter his previous career high of 38 set in 2012, reports the Washington Post. He has five triples and has a chance to match the career-best 11 he hit last season.

Nearly 40 percent of Span’s hits have gone for extra bases.

"I’ve never considered myself a singles guy or slap-type hitter," he told the paper. "I’ve always been a guy that can drive the ball. Just so happens I’ve been hitting a lot of doubles this year. I’ve hit a lot of triples in my career over the years. I wish that some of those doubles would go over the wall every now and then. I think it’s a tribute to my hard work and working with [hitting coach] Rick Schu in the cage, just concentrating on my swing."

Denard Span aiming to have more than 20 SBs in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Nationals manager Matt Williams wants his team to be aggressive on the base paths in 2014, and that's fine with outfielder Denard Span, according to The Washington Post. Span said he's worked on his speed and baserunning this offseason.

"I like that," Span said. "That’s what I want to do. I haven’t been as successful stealing bases in my career. But that’s something that every day I strive to get better at. I will get better. I’ll get more than 20 this year.

"I’ve been doing a lot of plyometrics, a lot of explosive stuff. Just trying to improve in any way I can. Just working on reaction time, drills, stuff like that. I’m confident it’s going to translate over to the field."

Span is also confident his offensive game will improve after an up-and-down first year with the Nationals. He hit .263 in the first half and .302 after the All-Star break.

"I know that I can play at that level longer than a month and a half," he said. "It was a little better going into the offseason. I’m just concentrating on being consistent like that. … If I can do that for an extended period of time, I think it’ll be a good season for myself and my teammates."
