Santana was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.

He should be available out of the bullpen going forward after left-hander Wes Benjamin was sent down in a corresponding move.
Santana was traded from the Dodgers to the Rangers on Thursday in exchange for left-hander Kelvin Bautista. Santana was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Saturday, and he'll now head to Triple-A Round Rock to begin his time with his new organization. The right-hander made 16 relief appearances for Los Angeles to begin the year and posted a 6.00 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 15 innings.
Santana was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Saturday. Santana threw 15 innings of relief for the Dodgers this season without much success, struggling to a 6.00 ERA and an 8:11 K:BB. He's still just 25 years old, which could convince another team to take a chance on him on waivers, but his career 6.42 ERA through 40.2 major-league innings isn't close to good.
