With basbeall’s Winter Meetings just a few days away, there is one name that will be off the table next week. Center fielder Denard Span was acquired by the Nationals from the Twins on Thursday.
Span was traded for top pitching prospect Alex Meyer. This deal came just a day after the Braves landed B.J. Upton.
With the acquisition of Span, the subject of where Michael Morse will land in 2013 will be a frequent one at the Winter Meetings, as will the subject of Sean Burnett.
Catcher Wilson Ramos is making progress in his recovery from a torn meniscus and ACL in his right knee, and he’s optimistic that he’ll return by the start of spring training.
Also, prospects Anthony Rendon and Matt Skole were named to the Arizona Fall League’s Top Prospects Team.
