Denard Span Newsbeat

Thursday, January 07, 2016

Denard Span gets 3-year contract from Giants | MLB.com

The Giants and free-agent outfielder Denard Span have agreed to a three-year deal, pending a physical.

The deal is reportedly worth $31 million ($10.33 million per season) plus performance bonuses.

Span, who turns 32 in February, is coming off a season in which he played just 61 games because of various injuries. The initial thought throughout the industry was Span would seek a one-year deal to re-establish his value, but his versatility and play when healthy—posting a career-high 184 hits in 2014—led to multiple suitors.

School of Roch: More on Orioles’ interest in Denard Span

Not really true, but great line.

With the Orioles in the market for another left-handed bat and searching for one more outfielder, it’s natural to link them to Denard Span as we approach 2016.
Span also would fill their need for a leadoff hitter, allowing them to lower Manny Machado in the order. They place a great deal of emphasis on defense, and Span isn’t suited for New Year’s Eve celebrations because he rarely lets a ball drop.
