FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Denard Span has reported to Minnesota Twins spring training, and the center fielder is ready to see how he feels coming off a year of concussion problems.

Span reported to camp on Tuesday, a couple days before position players were due to show up. He says he is feeling good and that his chiropractor has told him that concussion issues shouldn’t bother him anymore.

Span played in only 70 games last season because of the injury. He hit .264 with two home runs and 16 RBIs.  Manager Ron Gardenhire has Span penciled in as his starter.

The Twins will hold their first full-squad workout on Friday and Span says he is eager to get back on the field.
