Span went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and a pair of runs scored in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Span has been spending time batting third in the order over the past couple of weeks, but he returned to his usual spot atop the lineup with the Giants' recent leadoff hitter, Hunter Pence, getting the day off. The 33-year-old's .270/.325/.428 slash line is actually an improvement over last year's disappointing mark, and his light contributions in runs (71), homers (12) and steals (11) have kept him relevant in deeper formats.

Span is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

With lefty Rich Hill toeing the rubber for Los Angeles, Span will sit in favor of Gorkys Hernandez in center field, as he typically does when the Giants face a southpaw. Span has made 14 starts and totaled 74 plate appearances against left-handed pitching this season, going 13-for-69 (.188 average) with four extra-base hits.

Span is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Span slugged a homer and drove in three runs during Monday's win, but he'll head to the bench as the Giants face off against Clayton Kershaw and the slumping Dodgers. Gorkys Hernandez will take over in center field and assume the leadoff role in his absence.

Span went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, three RBI and two runs during Monday's win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Interestingly, Span moved into the three-hole of the lineup Monday and rewarded manager Bruce Bochy with a solid outing. The veteran outfielder is in the midst of a mini heater with three homers, seven RBI and nine runs through his past six games. Span could be worth a look in deeper settings with the Giants showing more signs of life offensively of late.

Span went 1-for-4 with a walk, a home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Span carried over his strong series in Coors (5-for-9) with his 11th long ball of the season. The veteran outfielder's production has been down across the board -- outside of homers -- this season, limiting his value to deeper fantasy leagues. That said, Span appears to be locked in at the plate right now, so he could be worth a look in standard formats until he cools off.

Span went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, three runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 9-6 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Span stuffed the stat sheet, but was once again quiet on the base paths. The leadoff man has just eight steals and 62 runs scored in 110 games, though he's had a successful trip to Coors Field with three extra-base hits and five runs in the first two games of this series.
