Minnesota Twins centerfielder Denard Span has experienced a very eventful last few months.
Span’s first bit of significant news took place in November, when the Twins traded fellow outfielder Carlos Gomez to the Milwaukee Brewers for shortstop J.J. Hardy. This transaction cleared the way for Span to assume the role of the Twins’ everyday centerfielder.
The current of good news continued for Span during spring training, when he inked a 5-year/$16.5 million extension with the Twins. At this point, it became abundantly clear that Span would be the heir apparent to Kirby Puckett and Torii Hunter in the line of great Minnesota Twins outfield generals.
