Denard Span walks, strikes out in Wednesday's loss

Denard Span went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the White Sox. Span has now reached base five times in his last three games, four times via a walk.

Fantasy Impact

Span has always been decent at getting on base, as shown by his career .348 OBP. However, the walks won't be enough to sustain fantasy value, and he'll need to start picking up hits on a more regular basis to be in consideration for your roster.

Denard Span walks twice, scores in Tuesday's win

Denard Span went 0-for-3 with two walks, two strikeouts, and a run in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the White Sox. Span's average dropped to .233 on the year and he's now struck out seven times and walked six in 30 at-bats.

Fantasy Impact

Unfortunately, both of Span's strikeouts came with runners in scoring position, one of which was the bases loaded with two outs. Span is seeing more playing time right now due to Kevin Kiermaier's injury and could lose out on time when he returns if Mallex Smith continues to tear it up.

Denard Span picks up another RBI in Monday's win

Denard Span went 1-for-4 with an RBI single to go along with a walk and a stolen base in Monday's 5-4 win over the White Sox. Span is now hitting .259 on the year with seven hits and eight RBIs.

Fantasy Impact

Surprisingly, the veteran outfielder is amongst the early leaders in RBIs in the AL, finding himself in the top-10 with eight. It's encouraging to see he can still swipe a bag when needed, but you shouldn't count on steals to be Span's consistent point generator. Span can be a steadying force in a league that takes averages into account, but he won't be an everyday player any time in the near future, especially if Mallex Smith keeps posting 4-for-4 lines like he did Monday.

Denard Span collects pinch-hit single in Thursday's loss

Denard Span, pinch-hitting for second-baseman Daniel Robertson, roped a single in the top of the 10th inning and made it to third before CJ Cron struck out to end the inning with the bases loaded. Span was then replaced defensively by Joey Wendle in the bottom of the tenth.

Fantasy Impact

Span wasn't in the lineup thanks to left-hander David Price getting the start for Boston. He should be back in the lineup Saturday when Rick Porcello takes the mound. It appears that Span will cede starts and at-bats against left-handers to Cron, so be aware of that if you're rostering Span.

Denard Span smacks two-RBI pinch-hit double in loss

Denard Span came on for Rob Refsnyder in the top of the 6th inning and went 1-for-2 with a double, two RBIs, and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

After Tuesday's game, Span is now slashing .214/.353/.429. Span has collected five RBIs already the Rays first five games, a pace he likely won't be able to keep up. Due to his platoon role with younger outfielders on the Rays, Span really only has value in very deep or AL-only leagues.
