Twins' Hector Santiago: On track to start next Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago (thumb) is on track to rejoin the Twins' rotation Wednesday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Santiago had his last start skipped due to his thumb injury, but it appears the setback will only cost him the lone outing. Santiago will likely throw a bullpen session or two prior to his next start in order to determine if there are any lingering issues.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Next scheduled start skipped
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago will have his next start skipped as he deals with a bruised thumb.

It's unclear when Santiago sustained the injury, but he was lit up in his last start to the tune of eight runs and 11 hits over 4.2 innings -- his second straight start surrendering at least seven runs in fewer than five innings -- so it may have been a lingering issue that he's been dealing with. Pat Dean will slot into the rotation and start Friday in his place, and it's unclear as of now if Santiago will be forced to miss more than just one turn through the rotation.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Struggles with Twins continue
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Santiago gave up eight runs on 11 hits, including three home runs over 4.2 innings, in Saturday's loss to Kansas City. He didn't walk a batter, but trying to reduce his high walk rate may be altering his performance. "That aggressive mentality where I let it fly and kind attack the hitters, I have a little blockage in there right now where I'm trying to control the zone and make everything over the plate," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Santiago has been terrible since he was traded to Minnesota with 23 runs allowed in four starts. He has just three walks in 19 innings over that span, but has given up seven home runs.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Gives up four earned runs in loss to Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago (10-6) allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts over 5.1 innings in a loss Tuesday to the Astros.

Santiago has allowed eight runs on 12 hits over 10.1 innings in his short Twins career. He was tagged for a two-run homer by Carlos Correa in the first inning, continuing his season-long issue with the gopher ball. He has now allowed 24 homers in 132 innings in 2016 after serving up 29 in 180.2 innings last season. He managed a 3.59 ERA last season, but unless he can figure out how to keep the ball in the ballpark, he's going to struggle to improve upon his current 4.47 ERA in 2016.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Fails to impress in Twins debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago (10-5) pitched five innings in his Twins debut, allowing four runs, five hits and two walks while striking out four in Thursday's loss to the Indians.

Santiago, who was acquired from the Angels on Monday, has always been plagued by controls issues and a high tendency to give up home runs. He put those faults on display for his new team when he was hurt by a pair of untimely walks and two homers. The left-hander has managed to become one of just 12 AL pitchers with double-digit wins, but he's been a bit fortunate considering he leads the AL in walks (59) and homers allowed (22). Due to his control problems, Santiago's pitch count gets up there quickly, limiting his average start to fewer than six innings over his 23 outings this year.
