Santana has throw a couple of bullpen sessions and is expected to throw live batting practice next week, according to MLB.com.He will throw extended spring training before heading to Triple-A Rochester for preparation.

Twins GM Terry Ryan: Ervin Santana 'shouldn't make that mistake'
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins general manager Terry Ryan was not happy about Ervin Santana's 80-game suspension, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

"People are going to test positive because kids are kids and men are men," Ryan said. "Unfortunately, people make mistakes. This one's a costly one, not only for the player but for us. It's a lot of games, a lot of money. You shouldn't make that mistake."

Santana is not eligible to return to the club until July at the earliest and Ryan is expecting him to take part in some extended spring training games "sometime in May."

"I'm not too worried about him because he's been around and he knows how to get prepared," Ryan said. "There's not a whole lot we want him to do other than make sure he keeps his core in shape and his legs in shape. It works out fine."

Santana signed a $55 million deal with Minnesota last offseason and was expected to be the ace of the staff.

Twins unsure when Ervin Santana will train with team
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With Twins pitcher Ervin Santana suspended for the first 80 games of the season, general manager Terry Ryan said he was unsure how long Santana would remain in Florida to train at the team's Fort Myers facility.

"I'm not sure exactly when he'll go back," Ryan said. "Intermittently, I suspect he'll be down there."

Ryan added that the team will not treat Santana's suspension as a disabled list stint and Santana will work to maintain his skills.

"We are going to deal with it," Ryan said. "There's nothing right now I can tell you that I can do about it other than the fact that we made some roster moves here, which I didn't anticipate. You've got to face the accountability as an organization and as a player, and that's what we're doing."

Santana suspended for PEDs; Pelfrey joins rotation, Thompson recalled
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher Ervin Santana has been suspended 80 games without pay after testing positive for Stanozolol, which is a performance-enhancing substance, Major League Baseball announced Friday. 

“We were disappointed to learn of the suspension of Ervin Santana for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," the Twins said in a statement Friday. "We fully support Major League Baseball’s policy and its efforts to eliminate performance enhancing substances from our game. Per the protocol outlined in the Joint Drug Program, the Minnesota Twins will not comment further on this matter.”

Santana's suspension comes a day after Braves pitcher Arodys Vizcaino was suspended 80 games for also testing positive for Stanozolol. 

The 32-year-old Santana is in his first year with the Twins after signing a four-year, $55 million contract in the offseason. He also has a $14 million team option for a fifth year.

Mike Pelfrey, who lost out on the competition for the fifth spot in the rotation, will avoid a bullpen assignment and take Santana's spot in the rotation. Reliever Aaron Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to take Santana's roster spot.

"I am very disappointed that I tested positive for a performance enhancing drug," Santana said in a statement. "I am frustrated that I can't pinpoint how the substance in question entered my body. I would never knowingly take anything illegal to enhance my performance. What I can guarantee is I never knowingly took anything illegal to enhance my performance. That's just not me, never has ben and never will."
