Span feeling better, but remains out

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins center fielder Denard Span said his right shoulder is feeling better, but he was still held out of the lineup against the Tigers for a second straight day on Tuesday.

Span injured his right shoulder when he landed awkwardly while trying to make a diving catch in center field on Sunday.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said that he doesn't expect Span to be in the lineup on Wednesday, but is hopeful he'll return against the Mariners this weekend.

"We'll have to wait and probably see out in Seattle," Gardenhire said. "He didn't do any fielding ground balls or drills, so he's obviously not ready to do those things, so he's obviously not playing."
