Denard Span: No deal imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span remains without close links to a team, David Schoenfield of ESPN reports.

Span is now 35 years old, but he can still help a team. He's managed an above-average batting line in four of the past five seasons and hit a solid .261/.341/.419 for the Rays and Mariners last season. He could help fantasy owners in deep leagues with a respectable batting average, and he's not a total zero in either speed or power, though he hasn't had more than 12 homers or steals in any of the last four seasons. At this point in the offseason, it's hard to see him signing somewhere in a starting role.

Denard Span: Mariners decline 2019 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span had his $12 million mutual option for 2019 declined by the Mariners and will become a free agent, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners opted to pony up for the $4 million buyout instead, sending Span into free agency. The 34-year-old slashed .272/.329/.435 with seven home runs in 94 games after being traded to Seattle from Tampa Bay while serving in a platoon role in left field. The veteran outfielder shouldn't garner much long-term interest but is likely to find a home somewhere, possibly on a minor-league deal.

Mariners' Denard Span: Clutch two-bagger in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span entered an extra-innings win over the Athletics on Tuesday as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning and went 2-for-3 with a two-run double and another two-bagger.

Span hit for Guillermo Heredia in the sixth and fouled out in his first at-bat, but he subsequently laced a two-run double in the eighth to cut the Mariners' deficit down to 8-7. The veteran outfielder added another double in the 10th, making it his first multi-hit effort since Sept. 5. It's been a tough month for Span offensively, as he's still hitting just .192 even after Tuesday's showing.

Mariners' Denard Span: Big day in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span delivered the tie-breaking home run in the fifth inning, then later provided an insurance run with an RBI single in the seventh.

Mariners' Denard Span: Another three-bagger in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span went 1-for-5 with a triple and a run in a win over the Athletics on Thursday.

The veteran has now rapped out seven three-baggers on the season, three of which have come in a productive August. Span is hitting .301 during the month with one game remaining, following a similarly impressive July (.313 average). He should continue drawing the majority of starts in left field down the stretch and retains an outside chance of reaching or eclipsing the career-high 68 RBI he compiled back in his sophomore 2009 campaign.

Mariners' Denard Span: Delivers game-winning home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span went 2-for-2 with a solo home run Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Span was originally relegated to the bench with southpaw Robbie Ray on the mound. However, he entered the game in the eighth inning and managed to smack his 10th home run of the season in the 10th inning off southpaw Jake Diekman. Span doesn't provide much in terms of counting stats but is batting a respectable .281/.358/.451 over 359 at-bats this season.

Mariners' Denard Span: Takes seat vs. left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Span is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Span heads to the bench with left-hander Robbie Ray taking the mound for the Diamondbacks, despite the fact his .288/.362/.400 slash line against lefties is comparable to his .277/.355/.440 season slash line. Mitch Haniger slides over to left field as Dee Gordon starts in center field, as the Mariners are likely to continue to shuffle their lineup to get everyone regular at-bats.

Span is in the midst of his second consecutive stellar month, as Monday's production pushed his August average to .319. The veteran outfielder continues to log the majority of the starts in left field. His solid .277/.356/.442 season line is partly comprised of a well-balanced array of 33 extra-base hits (18 doubles, six triples, nine home runs).
