Span had his $9 million club option for the 2015 season picked up by the Nationals on Thursday, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.
The move comes as no surprise after Span turned in arguably his best major league season in 2014. The center fielder slashed .302/.355/.416 while notching a career-best 184 hits to go with 37 RBI, five home runs and 31 steals (also a career-best). To top it all off, Span was named a finalist for the National League Gold Glove award.
