Nationals activate Span off 7-day DL
APR 19, 2014 11:24a ET
Span was in the leadoff spot Saturday against St. Louis. Manager Matt Williams says, ''Hopefully, he just doesn't get hit in the head. He's passed all the tests, done his rehab, he's been cleared to go. He's ready.''
To make room for Span on the roster, the Nationals optioned outfielder Steven Souza Jr. to Triple-A Syracuse.
