HAGERSTOWN M.D. - Washington Nationals center fielder Denard Span will be making his second consecutive rehab start tonight for the Hagerstown Suns (10-4) when they host the Lakewood BlueClaws (4-9) this evening in the second game of a three game series at 6:35pm at Municipal Stadium. Span is working his way back from a concussion and is eligible to come off the disabled list on Saturday.

He is in his seventh season in the majors and his second with the Nationals after spending his first five major league seasons with the Minnesota Twins. Span has a career .282 average in 752 career big league games.
