    • Santana (3-9) allowed two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts in a complete game Tuesday but still took the loss Tuesday against Atlanta. Santana now has two complete games and four quality starts in his last five outings as he is starting to round into form. He owned a 5.10 ERA after allowing five runs in five innings to the Angels on June 14. In six outings since then, he has allowed just 11 runs in 49 innings, good for a brilliant 2.02 ERA. The key has been keeping the ball in the yard -- opponents have managed just two home runs off Santana overt those six starts.

    • Santana allowed one run on six hits, struck out two and walked one over seven innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Wednesday. The only blemish on his afternoon was a solo homer allowed to Ian Kinsler to lead off the game. After that, he retired 15 of the next 16 batters. This was the fifth time in his last six starts that Santana allowed fewer than three runs, but he only has two wins during that span. He is 3-8 with a 3.93 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 75 strikeouts in 105.1 innings. He'll go for another win on Tuesday against the Braves.

    • Santana (wrist) is listed in the lineup as the Twins' starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports. Santana was struck by a line drive during his last start Friday, but the issue was never considered overly serious, and he's not expected to be limited Wednesday. The right-hander lasted 5.1 innings last time out, allowing six hits and three earned runs while striking out five.

    • Santana's left wrist was "a little swollen" after he was struck by a line drive in Friday's start, but he believes he will be fine moving forward, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Santana was removed from Friday's game after being struck, but he may have been coming out anyway after giving up three straight singles and allowing the Indians to seize the lead in the sixth inning. While Santana is optimistic about making his next start Wednesday, his status will be in question until he is cleared to take the mound.

    • Santana (3-8) allowed four runs, three of which were earned, on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings to take the loss Friday against the Indians. Santana gave up a pair of runs in both the fourth and sixth innings while the Twins' offense was unable to give him much support, leading to his eighth loss of 2016. This was the first time in five starts that he's failed to hold an opponent to two or fewer earned runs, and his ERA is now at 4.12. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Tigers.
