The Twins made it official, announcing that they will place Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list with a strained tendon in his left index finger and promote Denard Span from Class AAA Rochester.
Span will be at the Metrodome for Monday’s game against the Tigers.
The question now is how Span will be used. As a young player, the Twins want him to play regularly. I think he’ll get most of the starts in right field while Cuddyer is on the DL, but also spell Carlos Gomez and Delmon Young on occasion.
