MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins center fielder Denard Span has left Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the top of the seventh inning because of right shoulder pain.

The Twins say he will have a precautionary X-ray.

Span made a diving attempt at Jeff Keppinger’s line drive with two outs in the top of the sixth inning, driving his shoulder into the ground after missing the ball. Twins medical personnel and manager Ron Gardenhire checked on Span in the outfield, but he stayed in the game for the final out of the inning.

Ben Revere moved from left field to center and Darin Mastroianni took over in left field in the top of the seventh.

Span went 1 for 3 with a double and a run scored before leaving the game.
