Nationals OF Denard Span finding his 'old-man strength'
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Denard Span has rediscovered the long ball this season. Since coming back from an early injury, Span has four home runs, just four away from his career high set in 2009.

"Thanks for pointing that out," said Span to The Washington Post. "I think I'm just getting my old-man strength. It's coming in in the beard, and I think it's starting to show on the field now."

Span is nearly 100 points above his career average in slugging percentage so far this season and has 15 extra-base hits.

"To his pull side, if he's short, he can hit the ball a long way," manager Matt Williams said. "He's had a few of those since he's been back. Just short to the baseball, and he gets elevated."

Nationals' Denard Span making his way into mid-season form
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Nationals center fielder Denard Span is off and running to start the 2015 season. Span, who started the year on the disabled list is hitting .327 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 23 games this year. It's something Span wasn't expecting, according to MASN Sports.

"I am pleased. Definitely didn't expect to start off as good as I have started off," Span said. "Just a testament of hard work, commitment and just taking my job serious. Even when I was hurt, I was still watching games, paying attention to just small details type stuff and just happy to be back on the field helping my teammates."

Manager Matt Williams has given Span scheduled days off to keep pressure off of his injury.

"The good part about Denard's injury, if there is a good part, was that he was able to swing," Williams said. "The problem was running. Remember back to spring training, he just couldn't explode, he couldn't get to where he wanted to get to defensively. But he never had an issue with swinging because it was a side-to-side movement.

"With that being said, he got reps. He was able to take soft toss. He was able to do some things with his swing. It's a simple swing. That helps, too. So there's not a whole lot of movement. He's not looking to drive baseballs. The power element comes, but it's not what he's looking to do. So, that shortens that time a little bit. And allows him to get back in the flow quicker. I think he's played really well."
