UPDATE: The deal between the Twins and Nationals is officially dead. Span will remain with the Twins and is currently doing a rehab stint. Check out our injury page for updates on that as well.

The Span rumors really pickup up steam (including some scouts watching the Twins’ games) but now have been cooling off lately. The apparent hang up is that the Twins won’t move him without getting Storen and pieces in the deal. Whereas, the Nationals want to send set up man Tyler Clippard instead of Storen. This deal may ultimately be dead. We’ll keep updating as more news surfaces.
