MLB Trade Rumors: Nationals, Twins Discuss Denard Span For Drew Storen Trade, According To Report

The latest MLB trade rumor is a fairly juicy one for Washington Nationals fans. In their ongoing search for a center fielder, they have continued to be linked to Denard Span of the Minnesota Twins. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal is now reporting that those talks have intensified, and closer Drew Storen is among those being discussed in the trade.

Storen for Span is an interesting wrinkle in these talks. The Nationals clearly value Storen, but an everyday player like Span is probably worth more in general than a reliever. Span is 27 and has a career .366 on-base percentage, though he has only played in 59 games this season due to a concussion. He would certainly be a solid option at the top of the Nationals' lineup. Then again, Storen is younger and also a very good reliever.

While this is merely a trade rumor, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post does suggest that the Nationals value Span over B.J. Upton, to whom they also have been linked.
