Minnesota Twins players Danny Valencia and Denard Span are out of the lineup after being involved in a minor traffic accident in Minneapolis.
The players were traveling in separate vehicles to the airport Thursday afternoon following the Twins' victory over Seattle, a win that broke an 11-game losing streak. The car driven by Valencia's fiancee stopped in rush hour traffic and was rear-ended by Span's car.
Both vehicles suffered minor damage.
Both players said Friday they had headaches, but hoped to be in the lineup Saturday. Span, who has been on the disabled list twice because of a concussion, played Wednesday, his first action since Aug. 13.
