Pirates' Edgar Santana: Moves to restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates placed Santana (suspension) on the restricted list Sunday.

Pittsburgh made the move shortly after it was announced Sunday that Santana had received an 80-game suspension following his positive test for the performance-enhancing substance Boldenon. The transaction opens up an extra spot on the 40-man roster and spells an official end to the right-hander's season, as he won't be an option with the Pirates only playing 60 games in 2020. He'll serve out the final 20 games of his suspension at the start of the 2021 season.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Dealt 80-game ban
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana tested positive for Boldenon and received an 80-game suspension Sunday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.

Santana missed the 2019 season due to Tommy John surgery but was cleared for full participation before reporting to spring training in the spring. The 28-year-old had a 3.26 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 54:12 K:BB over 66.1 innings in 2018, but he won't be seeing game action in 2020 or early 2021.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

Santana was able to pitch this spring after missing all of 2019 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. While he's apparently healthy, he won't be opening the season in the big leagues despite his strong 3.31 ERA in 84.1 career innings at the highest level.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Smooth sailing so far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana, who hurled a scoreless inning against the Blue Jays on Monday, hasn't given up a run in three frames this spring.

After missing all of 2019 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, Santana has looked good in the Grapefruit League. While he's not expected to serve as Pittsburgh's closer at the start of the season, he could pitch in high leverage situations. Santana registered a 3.26 ERA, 54:12 BB:K and 20 holds in 66.1 innings in 2018.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Back from Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) was cleared for full participation before he reported to spring training this week, Stephen J. Nesbitt of The Athletic reports.

After undergoing Tommy John surgery in October 2018, Santana was sidelined for the entire 2019 season, though he was at least able to advance to mound work in August. The right-hander apparently cleared all the remaining hurdles in the recovery process over the winter, so he should get a legitimate chance to compete for a spot in the Pirates' bullpen this spring. During his last big-league season in 2018, Santana posted a 3.26 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 54:12 K:BB in 66.1 innings.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Limited to bullpen sessions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions at the Pirates' spring-training complex in Bradenton, Fla. over the past few weeks, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The same applies to Chad Kuhl (elbow), who like Santana, is also working his way back from Tommy John surgery. Both pitchers previously left the door open for returning late in the 2019 season, but the fact that neither has advanced to facing live hitters yet suggests that may no longer be a realistic goal. Assuming he avoids any further setbacks in his rehab, however, Santana should be back to full strength or close to it next spring.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Throws off slope
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) threw off a slope this week, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Teams have slopes at their spring training complexes, which are essentially mini mounds. Santana is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, but is not expected to return until spring training of 2020.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Throwing on flat ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) is now throwing on flat ground at 120 feet, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Santana looks to be progressing on schedule as he returns from Tommy John surgery and should begin throwing from the mound some time later in the year. The 27-year-old will miss the entire 2019 campaign, but should be ready to go at the start of 2020 if his rehab continues to progress smoothly.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Hits IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) was placed on the 60-day IL, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

He is recovering from Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire 2019 season. Since he had the procedure in October, he could be ready for the start of the 2020 season.

March 20, 2019 03:08 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Ups throwing distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) recently increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 90 feet, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Both Santana and Chad Kuhl are at the same stage of their respective recoveries from Tommy John surgery and aren't expected to resume mound work until later in the season. Santana is slated to miss the entire 2019 campaign but should report to camp next spring with few restrictions, if any.

February 28, 2019 05:12 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Throwing from 75 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) has been throwing from 75 feet this week, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Santana remains in the initial stages of his throwing program as he rehabs from the Tommy John procedure he required in early October. The right-hander should be ready to resume mound work at some point in 2019 and could even face hitters in live batting practice or a simulated-game setting, but the Pirates intend to stash him on the injured list throughout the campaign.

February 11, 2019 10:32 AM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) played catch Monday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Santana threw with teammate Chad Kuhl, who is recovering from a Tommy John surgery of his own. Santana will not return to game action this season, as the procedure (which he underwent in October) carries a recovery timeline of at least 12 months.

January 29, 2019 02:08 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Will throw in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) will be ready to resume throwing when spring training begins in February, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Santana underwent Tommy John surgery last September and is on track to miss all of 2019 while recovering from the procedure. The fact that he's close to throwing again suggests Santana has progressed as anticipated up to this point, but he still has several more hurdles to clear in his rehab.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Undergoes Tommy John procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) had Tommy John surgery with Dr. James Andrews on Thursday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Santana will miss the entire 2019 season after suffering the elbow injury Sept. 21 during a game against Milwaukee. Looking ahead, he will aim for a full recovery by spring training in 2020.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Requires Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery with Dr. James Andrews and miss the 2019 season, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Santana left Friday's game against the Brewers with forearm discomfort, and an MRI on Monday determined that he would need the dreaded procedure. A standard 12-to-16 month timetable will apply, so he'll be shooting to be ready for spring training in 2020. Across 69 appearances this year, Santana logged a 3.26 ERA and 1.10 WHIP.

September 23, 2018 01:12 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: MRI scheduled Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (forearm) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Santana left Friday's game against the Brewers after his arm started feeling tight. The severity of the issue should become clearer following the MRI.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Dealing with forearm pain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana left Friday's game against Milwaukee with right forearm discomfort.

The right-hander, who said his arm felt tight, will be reexamined Saturday. Santana allowed four runs without recording an out, but more importantly, a long-term injury to the surprising reliever would be a serious blow to the team's bullpen in 2019. He holds a 3.26 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 20 holds in 66.1 innings.

September 21, 2018 11:00 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana departed Friday's game against the Brewers due to injury, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Santana gave up three runs in the inning and failed to record an out prior to leaving the ballgame. The location and extent of the injury have yet to be announced.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Finding success in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana earned his third relief win Monday, retiring the Royals in order in a 7-6 walkoff victory.

With Keona Kela (fatigue) shut down for the rest of the year, Santana figures to see an uptick in high-leverage situations. The righty holds a 2.76 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 20 holds in his first full MLB campaign. Interestingly, he's enjoyed better success against left-handed hitters (.207 BAA) than righties (.254 BAA), though he's surrendered all six of his home runs to lefties. Santana could be in line for a save opportunity or two before season's end, as the Pirates will watch the workload of all their relievers (including closer Felipe Vazquez).

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Works through walks Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana allowed two hits and three walks in 1.1 innings of scoreless relief Friday.

The team trainer visited him during his second inning of work, but the righty remained in the game for another batter. Santana, who pitched in the fifth and sixth innings Friday, has allowed just one run in his last 15 outings (15.1 innings). The 25-year-old has posted 16 holds and a 45:8 K:BB to go along with a 3.21 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 49.1 innings.
