LF,CF - FA
OF Denard Span has officially retired from baseball.
Span was unable to reach a deal after the Mariners declined his $12 million option after the 2018 season and has officially retired from baseball. Span slashed .281/.347/.398 with 71 homers, 490 RBI, 773 runs and 185 stolen bases across 1,359 games in his career. The 36-year-old spent 11 seasons in the majors with the Twins, Nationals, Rays, Giants and the Mariners.
Denard span went 3-for-3 with two runs scored, two RBI, a home run, and a steal on Wednesday against the Orioles.
That's about as good as it gets for Span, who offers just enough power and speed to be relevant in mixed leagues. He's now slashing .277/.353/.449 on the year with 11 homers and eight steals.
Denard Span went 2-for-2 with a home run an RBI and a run in a 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
While it is unsure whether Span will be a consistent starter or not for the Mariners, this was a nice showing for the Veteran. He is currently on a six game hit streak and has an average of .281.
Denard Span went 3-for-3 with a triple, homer, three RBIs, two runs scored, and a walk in Thursday's win over the Astros.
Span has been hot of late and continues to see regular playing time. He has hits in five straight with four extra-base hits, four RBIs, and three runs scored over that stretch. He now has a triple slash of .275/.354/.444 on the season.
Denard Span went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored, an RBI, and a stolen base on Sunday against the Angels.
Span started out July playing extremely well, but had gone cold of late before Sunday's outburst. The veteran continues to have appeal in deep leagues, particularly as someone who can fill in for injuries. Long-term, none of Span's numbers stand out enough to warrant a starting spot in a fantasy lineup, but he's an excellent bench piece in most leagues.
