Nats’ Span starts rehab assignment
By Bill Ladson
SAN FRANCISCO – Nationals center fielder Denard Span started a rehab assignment for Class A Potomac on Sunday and went 0-for-2 against Wilmington, a Royals affiliate.
Span is recovering from back tightness, which placed him on the 15-day disabled list on July 10th.
Span’s assignment to Potomac marks his third rehab stint in 2015 after stops with the Double-A Harrisburg on April 14th and the Class A Hagerstown Suns from April 16th to April 17th.
