Denard Span Newsbeat

Denard Span out at least 4-6 weeks

Washington is the favorite for the pennant? Nat so fast.

Washington center fielder Denard Span had surgery Monday to repair a right core muscle injury and will miss the Nationals’ opener next month.

Manager Matt Williams said the projected time for Span’s return is uncertain and added “you’re looking at four-to-six weeks before he can start doing baseball activity again.”

Span had surgery to repair a sports hernia injury in December and reported discomfort at the start of spring training, which he attributed to offseason training…

Washington outfielders Jayson Werth and Nate McLouth are rehabilitating from offseason shoulder surgery. Williams said Michael Taylor is likely to get the majority of time in center while Span is sidelined.
