The opt-out date for Orioles lefty Johan Santana has come and gone, and the O's on Monday added the veteran hurler to the 40-man roster and placed him on the 15-day disabled list. The 35-year-old Santana is still working his way back from April 2013 shoulder surgery.

The key takeaway is that Santana will not be opting out of his Orioles contract and that, barring setback, he's on his way to pitching for Baltimore soon, likely as a member of the rotation.

Regarding Santana's time-table moving forward, here's this tweet from Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun:

Santana last pitched in 2012, when he logged a 4.85 ERA in 117 innings for the Mets. For his career, the two-time Cy Young winner owns an ERA+ of 136 and a K/BB ratio of 3.51 across parts of 12 major-league seasons.
