Santander will receive a PRP injection after an MRI on his right elbow revealed a strained ligament, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Santander will be shut down from throwing for six weeks after the PRP injection, so the 22-year-old is looking at a lengthy absence. The Rule 5 pick has been on the disabled list all season with a sore elbow, and while it seems like he was nearing a return, it now appears he won't be back until the second half of the season, if at all. The Orioles may choose to transfer him to the 60-day disabled list to open up a spot on the 40-man roster, though a move has not yet been announced.
