OF - 97
News
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."
