Twins' Ervin Santana: Hurls shutout against Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (7-2) allowed just two hits and two walks in a 2-0 complete game shutout over the Orioles on Tuesday. He struck out six.

It was a masterful performance by the veteran, who responded from a poor outing last week against the Rockies with an absolute gem. Santana lowered his ERA to a stellar 1.80 on the season, and has now thrown at least six innings in all 10 of his starts this season. The peripherals suggest some regression may be ahead, but as long as Santana continues going deep into games, he stands as a valuable fantasy asset. His next start will come on Sunday at home against the Rays.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Struggles against Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (6-2) allowed five runs on six hits and four walks while striking out just three batters over seven innings during Thursday's loss to Colorado.

Santana has pitched at least six innings in every start this season, and Thursday's outing was just the second time he allowed more than one run in an outing. It's been an impressive early-season run, but his 4.37 FIP suggests rougher times are likely ahead. Additionally, his 6.5 K/9 hardly moves the fantasy needle. Still, Santana is a solid fantasy own as long as expectations are kept in check going forward. He projects to make his next start against the Orioles at Camden Yards.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Start pushed back to Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana will now start Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Wednesday's contest was postponed, so Santana will simply make his next scheduled start a day later. He'll look to build on his strong start to the season that has left him with a 1.50 ERA and 0.82 WHIP through 54 innings (eight starts).

Twins' Ervin Santana: Earns sixth victory of season Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (6-1) allowed no runs on two hits and five walks while striking out four across seven innings to earn the win Friday against the Indians.

Santana was nearly unhittable, though his struggles with control caused him to burn through 99 pitches, forcing his exit after seven innings. Aside from his previous start in which he allowed six runs, he's held opponents to one or fewer earned runs in each of his other seven outings, giving him a 1.50 ERA and making him one of the biggest surprises for fantasy owners this year. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Rockies.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Suffers first loss of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana gave up six earned runs and four home runs over six innings in Sunday's loss to Boston. He suffered his first loss off the season to fall to 5-1 with a 1.72 ERA.

Santana had given up one or fewer runs in each of his first six starts of the season, so this was a surprising setback. He gave up two home runs in the first inning and settled down, but then gave up another two-run home run in the sixth inning. Santana's impressive first six starts were not sustainable as he allowed just a .145 BABIP and had just a 7.2 K/9. Still, it's hard to read too much into one poor outing.
