Only a year after acquiring him, the Nationals appear willing to listen to trade inquiries on center fielder Denard Span, officials on other teams say.

The flexibility on Span could be related to a potential corresponding move, and it was reported here that the Nationals were one of many teams interested in free-agent center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury.

Span was acquired a year ago from the Twins for top pitching prospect Alex Meyer when folks figured the Nats might go for a free-agent center fielder such as Michael Bourn. The Nationals wound up having a disappointing season.

Span had a decent season, though not spectacular. He hit .279 with four home runs and 75 runs scored. He did have a league-leading 11 triples.
