Denard Span hoping to return from concussion this weekend

Denard Span

As trade rumors continue to swirl around him, Twins center fielder Denard Span is finally on the verge of returning from the concussion that has sidelined him for the past two months.

Span, who’s been rehabbing at Triple-A for the past two weeks while taking multiple days off, told Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he expects to play one final game at Rochester tonight before joining the Twins on their West Coast road trip.

Christensen speculates that the Twins might be a little more cautious with his timetable, as Span hasn’t played for them since June 3 and hit just .207 with a .448 OPS through his first eight rehab games.

His being activated from the disabled list prior to Sunday’s trade deadline isn’t necessarily required in order for Span to be on the move, although obviously the Nationals (and any other teams interested in him) would love to see him cleared for a return before pulling the trigger on a deal.

    Then will be dealt for a guy who pitches the most over valued position in baseball. Why? Because the GMs have lost their damn minds.

      I wish I had enough faith in Bill Smith to disagree with this. Alas…
