  • Rangers' Dennis Santana: Allows unearned run

    Santana allowed an unearned run on one walk over one inning during Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Royals.

    The run may have been unearned, but the blame falls directly on Santana, whose throwing error and wild pitch allowed Whit Merrifield to reach third base with none out. The reliever has been effective for the Rangers with just one earned run allowed over eight innings (1.13 ERA, 0.62 WHIP) and five holds. Working against those results are his BABIP (.125), FIP (3.37) and xERA (2.83), which indicate a correction is coming.

  • Rangers' Dennis Santana: Makes second appearance off IL

    Santana struck out one over a scoreless inning in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Astros.

    Santana worked a scoreless ninth inning in his second game back after spending time on the COVID-19-related injury list. After getting tagged with a loss in his first outing of the season, Santana has made four consecutive scoreless appearances. He's been deployed in the last third of games but is not considered a candidate to close out games when Texas is leading.

  • Rangers' Dennis Santana: Activated by Texas

    The Rangers activated Santana from the COVID-19-related injured list Sunday.

    Santana was inactive for the past week and a half after testing positive for the virus, but he looks like he'll be an available option out of the Texas bullpen for Sunday's series finale in Oakland. Before falling ill, Santana made three relief appearances for the Rangers, gathering two holds while allowing one earned run over 3.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Dennis Santana: Set to rejoin team

    Santana (COVID-19 injured list) is symptom-free and will rejoin his teammates on the road in the next couple days, Doug Miller of MLB.com reports.

    Rangers manager Chris Woodward was uncertain whether Santana would join the club Thursday in Seattle or Friday in Oakland. Santana, who registered holds in two consecutive outings before hitting the IL, is expected to return to a setup role in the Texas bullpen.

  • Rangers' Dennis Santana: Placed on COVID-19 IL

    Santana was placed on the COVID-19 injured list for an undisclosed reason Thursday.

    Santana is reportedly asymptomatic, but it's not yet clear whether he's tested positive for COVID-19. Right-hander Nick Snyder was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock to provide bullpen depth, while it's not yet known when Santana will be able to return.

  • Rangers' Dennis Santana: Earns second hold

    Santana allowed one hit over a scoreless relief inning in Monday's 6-4 extra-inning loss to the Rockies.

    Santana made his third appearance in four games, coming into the sixth inning after Albert Abreu plunked Randal Grichuk to start the inning. It was the second time that he entered with men on base and got the Rangers out of the inning. The right-hander should be used as a high-leverage arm, regardless of inning.

  • Rangers' Dennis Santana: Recalled by Texas

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

    Santana was traded from the Dodgers to the Rangers in mid-June, and he struck out 12 in five scoreless innings across five relief appearances with Triple-A Round Rock. He should be available out of the bullpen going forward after left-hander Wes Benjamin was sent down in a corresponding move.

  • Rangers' Dennis Santana: Traded to Rangers

    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.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Designated for assignment

    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.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Sent down to minors

    Santana was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Santana has appeared in 16 games -- all as a reliever -- for the Dodgers this season. However, he hasn't been particularly effective by maintaining 6.00 ERA and 1.93 WHP across 15 frames. Mitch White was called up in the corresponding move.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Back on active roster

    Santana was activated off the COVID-19 injured list Monday.

    Santana spent just two days away from the team. His absence was never expected to be a long one, as he was merely on the injured list while experiencing the side effects of the coronavirus vaccine.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Out briefly following vaccine

    Santana was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday due to the side effects of his coronavirus vaccine shot, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    The issue is unlikely to sideline Santana for more than a day or two. Garrett Cleavinger was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Called up from taxi squad

    The Dodgers recalled Santana from their taxi squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Rockies.

    He'll be added to the bullpen as a replacement for Tony Gonsolin, who was placed on the 10-day injured list due to right shoulder inflammation. Santana is expected to work as a multi-inning reliever during his time on the 26-man roster.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Denied roster spot

    Santana won't be included on the Dodgers' Opening Day roster, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The coaching staff evidently felt the team was better off carrying another lefty reliever to begin the season, so Scott Alexander was awarded the final spot in the bullpen over the right-handed Santana. The 24-year-old is expected to spent the next month at the Dodgers' alternate site or as a member of the taxi squad before reporting to Triple-A Oklahoma City for the start of the minor-league season in May.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: In mix for roster spot

    Santana could make the Opening Day roster in a bullpen role, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

    Santana has looked good so far this spring, hurling four scoreless innings and giving up only one hit while striking out five. The right-hander was primarily a starter in the minors, so he could function as a multi-inning reliever if he breaks camp with the Dodgers. That possibility may depend on the status of Joe Kelly (shoulder), who is currently a question mark to be ready by Opening Day.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Sent to alternate training site

    Santana was optioned to the alternate training site Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

    The 24-year-old has been in the majors all season, but he'll head to the alternate site with Pedro Baez (groin) returning from the injured list. Santana has a 5.29 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB over 17 innings this season.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Blown save, loss against Giants

    Santana (1-2) was tagged with a blown save and a loss in Tuesday's game against the Giants. He allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits -- including a home run -- in two-thirds of an inning. He struck out one.

    Santana pitched the bottom of the 11th with a one-run lead, but that quickly vanished when he allowed Mike Yastrzemski to score from second base on an RBI single from Evan Longoria. He struck out Brandon Belt in the next at-bat and was just one out away from completing the inning, but Donovan Solano took him deep to end the game. Santana has been struggling of late, giving up seven earned runs and three home runs in 2.2 innings across his last three appearances.

  • Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Impressive in relief win

    Santana (1-0) earned the win against Houston on Wednesday, tossing 2.1 scoreless innings and allowing no hits and two walks while striking out four.

    Santana was pressed into a multiple-inning relief outing as the game extended into the 13th frame, and he responded with the finest performance of his young career. Working with a runner placed at second base at the start of the 12th and 13th innings, Santana did not allow a hit while navigating through the Astros' lineup with relative ease. The performance showed why the Dodgers chose to give the right-hander a spot in their big-league bullpen to open the campaign despite his struggles in the minors last season.
