Scouting Report
: Spann is an intelligent third-baseman with a very good glove and an average stick.  He has worked his way up through the organization slowly, struggling initially at almost every level, but showing a great ability to make adjustments and eventually thrive.  He is athletic in the field with good range and an accurate arm.  At the plate, he has a fluid swing with good bat speed, and once he makes his adjustments at each level he has been able to demonstrate nice patience.  Spann has been young at each level throughout his Red Sox career.  Seemed to hit a road block at AAA.  Began splitting time between 1B and 3B in 2007.
