Denard Span

Span has spent the past three seasons as the Washington Nationals’ center fielder and leadoff hitter, tying for the National League lead in hits during the 2014 season with 184 base knocks.

He hit .301 in 2015, but was limited to only 61 games due to injury.

Statistically, Span is a better hitter throughout his career than Fowler, but at the same time he is two years older. If the Cubs sign him, it would only be for a couple of years until Almora is ready to take over running the outfield.
