Denard Span in Vertigo

Denard SpanDenard Span has missed some playing time from the feeling of vertigo combined with neck pain and a headache after a collision at home with Kansas City Royals catcher Brayan Pena. Span collided at home with Pena after attempting to stretch a trip in to an inside-the-park home fun in the fourth inning at Kauffman Stadium.

Every bat since that collision Span has described as a "blur". In 2009, Span experienced similar symptoms from an inner ear infection, without the neck and head pain.

I really hope we don't have another Percy Harvin on our hands.

Even though Span was check in Kansas by a medical team and was determined to not have a concussion, he will be checked again back in Minnesota. The MLB recently instituted a seven-day disabled list for players suffering from concussions, but Span cannot be placed on that list unless he is diagnosed as having a concussion.
