It appears right-hander Ervin Santana is in desperation mode. On the heels of the news that he may change agents, the free agent hurler is now willing to take a one-year contract and soon.

Several clubs could use a guy like Santana, including the Blue Jays, Orioles, Mariners, Indians, Royals, Braves and Phillies, for example. He will cost a team their highest unprotected draft pick to sign, a first rounder in most cases.

Santana, 31, went 9-10 with a 3.24 ERA (127 ERA+) for the Royals last season. He has thrown at least 210 innings in three of the last four years.
