I'd personally switch Span and Young as Delmon has the stronger arm (though strangely not as strong as Gomez's arm). The problem is that Span and Gomez are both CF's, as is up and coming prospect Aaron Hicks.
Delmon Young-OF - Twins Dec. 5 - 9:42 am et
Asked Thursday about the Twins' crowded outfield, manager Ron Gardenhire replied that Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gomez and Denard Span "have to play every day" while Delmon Young is merely "in the mix."
"[Young] is a hell of a player, a hell of a talent," Gardenhire said. "But to me, those three guys should be your outfield and then you go from there." Twins fans who saw Young post a 741 OPS while playing poor defense may agree with Gardenhire, but it's still surprising to hear him say that publicly amid speculation that the team is looking to deal an outfielder. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Rockies have expressed interest in Young and the Twins have previously been linked to Garrett Atkins.
I am aware that Denard Span spent much of his time in right field in 2008. Since manager Ron Gardenhire wants Michael Cuddyer back in right field for 2009, will Span move to center, and will Carlos Gomez and Delmon Young be fighting for the left field spot?

The only role that Gardenhire has defined in the outfield so far this spring is right field -- which will be occupied by Cuddyer. As for the other three outfielders, Gardenhire has said that he will shuffle them around the field in order to get them at-bats.
