    After moving Plouffe to the outfield the Twins actually seem to have too many options in the outfield. You don't even mention Rene Tosoni. He struggled last year and will probably only top out as a fourth outfielder, but he has a .360 OBP in the minors, and if he's hot he could also help fill the hole.

    Obviously a healthy Span would be the best outcome for the Twins, but this is one of the least of my worries coming into this season.

    It seems like a lot of our young guys are getting towards the end of their available options. Does anyone know where Tosoni is at, as far as options go?

    Great article, Nick. Span is key, I agree, but only so far as Mauer and/or Morneau are healthy.

    Span's health will be one key to the Twins getting 85+ wins versus 70. As much as his effectiveness to get on base is hugely important, it is still secondary to the health of Mauer and Morneau because no matter how good Span's OBP is, if we don't have anyone who can consistently drive him home, it doesn't matter how much he is getting on base.

    It always comes down to the RBI guys being there, but without Span there aren't as many RBIs to get.

    Tosoni didn't make his major league debut until last year, so he should have two options remaining.

    Yeah, Tosoni was only added to the 40 man roster after the 2010 season (same as Benson and Parmelee), so he has two options remaining.

    Chris Parmalee is another option for one of the corner outfield spots. As far as center field goes, Ben Revere is the only one that can fill that hole on a consistent basis.
