Pick Up Denard Span?

I have to admit, I hadn't given Twins right fielder Denard Span much consideration.  But I read this post by Dave Cameron today - it appears Span's on-base ability is for real (and there was never any doubting his speed).  As Cameron says, Span is flying under the radar because he plays for the Twins.

In Triple A this year, Span attempted a steal more than 30% of the time he was on first base.  He's at 16% in the bigs so far, which will hopefully rise as he becomes a better baserunner.

Michael Cuddyer's return next week might affect Span's playing time, though.  Logic says Span moves to center field with Carlos Gomez going to Triple A or the bench.  But we know the Twins aren't always logical.
