With Tuesday afternoon's 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline fast approaching, rumors had been swirling that the Minnesota Twins were fielding offers for outfielder Denard Span.
However, while Span was willing to acknowledge that he may be traded, he evidently didn't want to be traded to the Cincinnati Reds.
According to a report by MLB Network, Span utilized the no-trade clause in his contract to decline a trade to the Reds.
With the Twins sitting in fourth place in the American League's Central Division and the Red sitting in first place in the National League's Central Division, it seems strange on the surface that Span would turn down a chance to seemingly go to the playoffs.
For now, at least, Span will remain in Minnesota.
