Red Sox's Danny Santana: Joins ALDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (illness) has been added to the Red Sox's ALDS roster, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Santana hasn't appeared in a major-league game in nearly a month after he tested positive for COVID-19. However, he began a rehab assignment in late September and went 2-for-15 with two doubles, two runs and four strikeouts. He should serve as a utility man during the ALDS.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (illness) went 1-for-4 as the designated hitter for Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday.

Santana kicked off a rehab assignment with the WooSox. It's unclear if he'll be added to the roster over the final four games, but his defensive versatility and speed could be useful with the Red Sox attempting to secure a playoff spot.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Cleared for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (illness) joined Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday to begin a rehab assignment, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Santana has been on the COVID-19 injured list since Sept. 11 after testing positive for the virus, so he could need at least a few days' worth of workouts before the Red Sox are comfortable activating him. If Santana rejoins Boston for its final series of the regular season this weekend in Washington, he would likely serve as a utility man.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday after he tested positive for the virus.

Santana returned from the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday, but he'll have to spend more time away from the team due to his positive test result. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return, but Jack Lopez was recalled from Triple-A Worcester to take his place on the active roster.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Pops homer in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 12-7 loss to Tampa Bay.

The 30-year-old entered the game with Boston trailing 12-3 in the eighth inning. Santana went back-to-back with Bobby Dalbec in the eighth, although the rally fell short. Santana missed two days while he was on the COVID-19 injured list, but his quick return indicates he is healthy. He'll likely continue to serve in a utility role. The veteran is slashing just .174/.250/.349 with five homers, 14 RBI, 14 runs scored and three stolen bases through 120 plate appearances.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Reinstated from COVID-19 IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

Santana landed on the COVID-19 IL on Sunday, but his quick return signals that he didn't test positive for the virus. The 30-year-old has had minimal playing time recently and should serve as utility depth after Taylor Motter and Franchy Cordero were removed from the active roster Tuesday.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Goes on COVID-19 IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday.

The length of Santana's absence will depend on whether he tested positive and whether he's been vaccinated against the virus. Franchy Cordero was recalled from Triple-A Worcester to fill his roster spot.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Scores in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana entered Friday's game as a pinch runner and scored a run in an 8-5 win over Cleveland.

Santana ran for Travis Shaw in the seventh inning then scored on Kyle Schwarber's two-run double two batters later. Santana, who was reinstated to the roster Wednesday amid a COVID-19 outbreak, could be used frequently. The Red Sox were already playing without middle infielders Enrique Hernandez, Christian Arroyo and Xander Bogaerts, before center fielder Jarren Duran was added to the COVID-19 list Friday. Although Santana plays multiple positions, middle infield and center field have been his primary spots throughout his career.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Back from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (groin) was activated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

Santana has been sidelined by the groin injury since just after the All-Star break, and he'll rejoin the major-league roster Wednesday with the team in the midst of a COVID-19 outbreak. The 30-year-old won't immediately join the lineup, but there should be plenty of opportunities up for grabs in the immediate future with four position players currently on the COVID IL.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Won't return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (groin) is expected to make his final rehab appearance at Double-A Portland on Tuesday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

The Red Sox were hopeful that Santana would be back with the team as early as Monday, but he'll require at least one more rehab game before returning to the majors. The team would have some more flexibility if he's activated Wednesday since the team's active roster will expand to 28 players Sept. 1. The 30-year-old has gone 7-for-14 with two home runs, a double, five runs, four RBI and three stolen bases across his five rehab appearances.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Could be back Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (groin) could be reinstated from the 10-day injured list as soon as Monday, MLB.com reports.

Santana has been rehabbing at Double-A Portland and will play his first nine-inning game Sunday. With Enrique Hernandez and Christian Arroyo on the COVID-19 injured list, the Red Sox may want Santana back with the club for the upcoming four-game set on the road against Tampa Bay to provide another option in the infield.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (groin) has been added to the roster at Triple-A Worcester to begin a rehab assignment, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Santana has been on the injured list for nearly a month, but he resumed baseball activities in early August and will return to game action with the minor-league club. Although it's not clear how many rehab games the 29-year-old will require, he's getting close to rejoining the Red Sox.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Getting closer to rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (groin) participated in a full workout Tuesday and is hoping to begin a rehab assignment next week, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Santana resumed baseball activities last week, and Tuesday's update indicates that he is continuing to progress well in his recovery from a left groin injury. If he's indeed able to embark on a rehab stint next week, the 30-year-old should remain on track for a late-August activation from the injured list.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Starts up baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (groin) was recently cleared to resume baseball activities and remains without a timeline to return from the 10-day injured list, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Santana is starting to make progress in his recovery from the left groin issue that sent him to the injured list July 22, but the Red Sox likely won't have a clear target date for him to rejoin the active roster until he's cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. Whenever he's activated, Santana may be limited to a utility role with Boston that affords him only a couple of starts per week.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Moves to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox will place Santana (groin) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Manager Alex Cora acknowledged after Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Blue Jays that Santana's left groin injury would likely result in an IL stint, so Boston's decision to deactivate him a day later comes as little surprise. Santana came off the IL just three days earlier after moving past a quadriceps issue, so it's somewhat disconcerting that he's tending to another lower-half injury. Boston called up the hot-hitting Franchy Cordero from Triple-A Worcester to fill Santana's spot on the 26-man active roster.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (groin) isn't starting Thursday's game against the Yankees, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Santana is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list after he left Wednesday's game with left groin tightness. Bobby Dalbec will start at first base and bat eighth Thursday, while Franchy Cordero will likely be called up in the near future.

July 22, 2021 09:04 AM
Red Sox's Danny Santana: IL stint likely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (groin) is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Santana was removed from Wednesday's game due left groin tightness, and Boston manager Alex Cora suggested an IL stint is likely. "It seems that way," Cora said. "We'll see. It's the left groin. He felt it. I was just talking to him. We'll know more tomorrow but it doesn't seem too promising." The Red Sox may call up Franchy Cordero from Triple-A Worcester as a replacement.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Dealing with left groin tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana exited Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays with a tight left groin, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

The utility player had very clearly suffered some injury to his left leg, but the Red Sox specified that his groin is the issue. Whether Santana will return to the injured list should become clear in the next couple days.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was removed from Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays with an apparent leg injury, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

He struggled to get up after diving for a ball in left field, then limped off to the clubhouse with what looked like a left leg injury. Alex Verdugo entered the game to replace Santana, who was playing just his second game after returning from a strained left quadriceps.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Clubs homer in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Monday's win over the Blue Jays.

Santana was activated from the injured list prior to Monday's contest, and he didn't skip a beat at the dish. He doubled home a pair of runs in the top of the second and belted a solo homer in the fourth for his fourth homer of the campaign. Santana will aim to continue this type of production moving forward after slashing an uninspiring .178/.239/.337 through 32 contests.
