The Minnesota Twins are expected to have an “active” winter
meetings next week in Nashville, and there’s belief that a trade of center
fielder Denard Span “is coming,” reports 1500 ESPN.
The same source said of next week's winter meetings in
Nashville: "Look for an active meetings." The belief is a trade of
center fielder Denard Span is coming.
Span has been on the trade block for what’s seemed like
years, but it appears his tenure in Minnesota could be coming to an end
shortly. There is a demand for center fielders this winter, and Span would
likely draw interest from teams such as the Philadelphia Phillies and
Washington Nationals, among others.
Span is set to make a guaranteed $11.25 million over the
next two seasons, and his contract also includes a $9 million team option for
2015. He’s hit .284/.357/.389 over five seasons at the major league level.
