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.
