Twins' Hector Santiago: Ugly outing in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago didn't make it through a second inning of work in Monday's spring training outing, giving up five runs on two home runs with no strikeouts while retiring three batters.

It was his first spring start, so results likely don't matter for a veteran with a set spot in the rotation. However, Minnesota's new GM and team president didn't trade for Santiago, so he could have a short leash in the rotation if he struggles early in the regular season. He posted career worsts in ERA, FIP, and K/9 during 2016.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Inks $8 million deal to avoid arbitration with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago and the Twins avoided arbitration Friday with an $8 million deal, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

Santiago posted career worsts in ERA, FIP, and K/9 during 2016, but still managed to negotiate a $3 million salary increase with Minnesota. He has at least delivered innings as of late, topping 180 innings in both 2015 and 2016. The 29-year-old is entering his final season before free agency.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Wins final outing of season with scoreless quality start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Santiago (13-10) pitched 6.1 scoreless innings, giving up only three hits and three walks in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Santiago was particularly effective against his former team, going 4-0 with a 1.03 ERA in four starts against the White Sox this season. Although he can't be blamed for a lack of wins playing for the Angels and Twins this year, he did set personal worsts in ERA (4.87) and K/9 (7.07). To provide more value next year, he'll need to return to at least posting a higher strikeout rate -- like he did his first two years in the league -- if he doesn't significantly improve in ERA, WHIP or wins.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Allows four runs in Sunday's loss to Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Santiago allowed four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out just one across 5.2 innings Sunday versus the Mariners.

Santiago fell victim to the long ball Sunday, as he limited baserunners for the most part, but all of the runs against him came via the home run. The lefty came within an out of rattling off four consecutive quality starts earlier this month, but he has since allowed 10 runs in 11 innings to see his ERA jump back to 4.87. It's been an up-and-down season for Santiago, and he will look to finish it on a high note Saturday versus the White Sox.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Stumbles after hot start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago (12-9) pitched 5.1 innings, allowing six runs, seven hits and two walks while striking out five Tigers in Tuesday's loss.

Santiago looked locked in early Tuesday, striking out five of the first eight batters he faced, including a stretch of four in a row. However, the left-hander began to come unglued late in the third inning, before being completely thrashed in a four-run sixth. After a rough stretch in August, Santiago was performing much better over his last four games -- a span that included three quality outings and a 1.80 ERA over 25 innings. That run came to a screeching halt while the Tigers handed him his first loss in five starts. Santiago will look to rebound when he toes the rubber Sunday versus Seattle.
