Denard Span has improved plate discipline in July
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Denard Span's on-base percentage has been on the rise in July. It has gone from .312 at the start of the month to .348 through Wednesday's game at Miami, and a large reason for the improvement has been because of the 16 walks Span has drawn in 23 games this month.

"I think it just comes from being in a good position to hit," Span said, per The Washington Post. "Obviously that results in me seeing the ball better. It’s been a good feeling because I haven’t walked like this in a while. I know that this is something I’m capable of doing. My walks have been down the last three or four years. It’s just good that I’ve been able to see a lot of pitches and confident to hit with two strikes and just trusting myself just to get into deeper counts."

Span is also batting .363 (33 for 91) in July, which has helped boost his average from .265 to .288.

"I’m in a pretty good position to hit," Span said. "I think that’s allowing me to see the ball a lot sooner, a lot better and lay off some good pitchers’ pitches, and put the balls in play that are strikes."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Denard Span continued his absurdly hot hitting Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Reds.

Denard Span racking up extra-base hits
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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 catching break in nightcap
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Nationals center fielder Denard Span is getting a rest in the second game of the doubleheader Saturday night against the Cubs. Nate McLouth will man the position instead.

Span has been a steady and productive contributor most of the season, though he has fallen into a 3-for-22 slide.
