Santana (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of Cold Omaha reports. The Twins are set to recall James Beresford from Triple-A on Tuesday, so moving Santana to the 60-day DL will free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Santana, who was diagnosed with a Grade 2 shoulder strain last week, is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
Santana has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 shoulder sprain and will likely miss the rest of the season, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports. Santana will not require surgery on his shoulder, but his recovery timetable is 4-to-6 weeks, so he presumably will not play again in 2016. He should be back at 100 percent well in advance of spring training, when he will try to lock down a spot on the Twins' Opening Day roster.
Santana (shoulder) won't need surgery on his sprained AC joint, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The Twins decided not to take any chances and placed him on the disabled list immediately even with the September roster expansion coming up. Now that surgery has been ruled out, there's still a chance Santana could play this season, but we'll have to see how his rehab goes before a return can be certain.
Santana (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL following Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Blue Jays. Santana exited in the top half of the first inning with an AC sprain in his right shoulder, which he sustained during an outfield collision with teammate Robbie Grossman. The Twins' medical staff quickly determined that Santana's injury was more than a day-to-day concern, so he'll head to the DL in order for the team to bring aboard Logan Schafer from Triple-A Rochester as outfield depth. There's still a possibility that Santana could rejoin the Twins later in September if his rehab goes smoothly.
Santana was removed from Sunday's game against the Indians in the first inning with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Santana was making his fourth start in the past six games, but didn't log a single at-bat Sunday after suffering the injury in the top half of the inning during an outfield collision with teammate Robbie Grossman. Eddie Rosario came off the bench to replace Santana in center field. The Twins will continue to monitor Santana over the next few days to determine the extent of his injury, but with rosters set to expand Sept. 1, the team won't have to wait long to bring in depth options in the outfield if Santana needs to miss extended time.
