Span showed concussion-like symptoms after he collided with Braves second baseman Dan Uggla while running the bases on April 11. While it was concerning given his history, he passed a concussion test earlier this week and had no issues during two rehab games with High-A Hagerstown.
Span, 30, was hitting .222 (8-for-36) with three doubles, one triple, four RBI and a stolen base prior to going on the disabled list. The hot-hitting Anthony Rendon has been hitting leadoff during his absence, but he’ll now likely move back down to the No. 2 spot.
