Twins place CF Denard Span on disabled list

The Minnesota Twins have placed center fielder Denard Span on

the 15-day disabled list with an injured collarbone.

Span strained the right side of his collarbone while diving to

make a catch against Tampa Bay on Aug. 12. He has missed 13 of the

17 games since the injury, with Ben Revere taking over the bulk of

the work in center. The move is retroactive to Tuesday.

Span is hitting .286 with three homers and 35 RBIs this


The Twins say they will announce a corresponding roster move

when they arrive in Kansas City on Friday.

Span says he was surprised by the decision. But he also says he

knows it’s ”not fair to the team” to keep coming in and

scratching himself from the lineup.
