The Reds have definite interest in center fielder Denard Span, a Twins official confirmed today, while hinting strongly that Span won't be going anywhere before today's 3 p.m., non-waiver trade deadline.
"They are one of many who like him, but so do we!!!" the Twins official texted. "No pressure to trade. Very valuable in a lot of ways!"
Scott Miller, of CBSSportsline.com, reported earlier that a source thought the Reds had a 50-50 chance of trading for Span. It's worth noting, however, that the Reds are thin on pitching prospects, which is something the Twins would almost surely require in a deal for Span, who is under contract through 2014.
