News: Span (concussion) "feels much better," but agrees that it was for the best for him to be placed on the 7-day concussion DL,'s William Ladson reports. Impact: Span continues to experience lingering concussion symptoms following Friday's collision with Dan Uggla. Nate McLouth took over in center field in Sunday's lineup, with Bryce Harper in left and Jayson Werth in right, and we would expect something similar to this for the remainder of Span's absence. Utility infielder Kevin Frandsen, along with recent callup Steven Souza, may also come into the mix.(RotoWire, )
