Nationals' Span set to take first swings since undergoing surgery
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Denard Span is scheduled to swing a fungo in the batting cage Friday, per The Washington Times. It will be his first swings since undergoing core muscle surgery in early March.

"It's good progress," Williams said, per MASNsports.com. "It's part of the rehab progression. Of course we want him back as quickly as possible, keeping in mind that he's just coming off of surgery. So anytime you have to go in there, you have to take time to get well again. But yeah, it's encouraging.

"We just want to make sure that we go through that progression accordingly, and when he's ready, he's ready. But it's a really good sign that he's able to do some stuff, especially this early. It's going to be light, of course, but nonetheless he's doing it, so that's a good sign."

Nationals CF Denard Span (abdominal) likely to return in May
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Center fielder Denard Span is looking at a return to the Nationals in May, according to MLB.com

Span tore an abdominal muscle and needed surgery to repair it. He was cleared this week to perform walking exercises and lower ab workouts. This surgery came after Span started feeling pain following a hernia surgery in December. 

"It's just frustrating. We went through this three months ago," Span said. "It was an obstacle for me to come back and having the [hernia] surgery done during the offseason. It will be another obstacle to get back in the swing of things this year. I'm not discouraged by any means. If anything, I'm just trying to get myself mentally prepared for those obstacles."

Span is an integral part to the Nationals and having him out for a month will be tough. Span was one of the Nationals' most consistent hitters in 2014, posting a .302 average with 37 RBI. His 184 hits were a career-best.

Nationals' Denard Span undergoes surgery on core muscle
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Denard Span underwent surgery to repair his right core muscle Monday, the team announced.

Span underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia in December, but it's not clear if the two procedures are related. He played in just one spring game, going 0 for 2 Thursday.

Manager Matt Williams said the timetable for Span's recovery is up in the air, but it could be four-to-six weeks before he's ready to resume baseball activity. The outfielder is expected to rejoin the team by the end of the week to begin the rehab process.

Nationals CF Denard Span looking forward to free agency
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Center fielder Denard Span is in the final year of his deal with the Nationals. And according to The Washington Post, Span is looking forward to testing free agency when the time comes.

“Have I thought about it this offseason? Of course," Span said. "I’ve worked my whole career to get to this point, to be a free agent. But at the same time, I’m concentrating on trying to do the best that I can to help this ball club win. I feel like if I do my job and we do our jobs collectively I’ll get compensated and everything will fall into place.”

The Nationals have yet to approach Span about a new contract.

Span had one of the better seasons in his career in 2014, hitting .302 with 37 RBI and 31 stolen bases.
