The Minnesota Twins have activated Denard Span from the 15-day disabled list following their most recent loss against the Oakland Athletics.
Span has been the subject of several trade deadline rumors, but will join the Twins when they travel to Anaheim to open the Twins-Angels series on Tuesday. Monday is an off day/travel day for the Twins.
Span has been on the disabled list since June 9, when he was placed on the list because of a concussion. He has appeared in 56 games with the Twins, batting .294 with nine doubles, three triples, two home runs and 15 RBIs.
Luke Hughes has been sent down to Triple-A Rochester to make room for Span on the Twins 25-man roster.
It will be interesting to see how Gardenhire handles the playing time between Ben Revere and Denard Span!
