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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Growing into role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana recorded his second victory in as many nights Thursday, retiring a lone San Diego batter to end the seventh inning.

After compiling a 5.40 ERA in his first 10 appearances, Santana has strung together 8.1 shutout innings in his last nine games. He's positioned himself for higher leverage situations but still ranks behind Felipe Vazquez, Michael Feliz and likely Richard Rodriguez in the bullpen pecking order. The 25-year-old, who didn't start playing baseball until he was 19 years of age, has continued his nascent rise courtesy of a 95-mph fastball with good movement and a sharp slider he uses 35 percent of the time.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Gives up two runs in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana gave up two runs on two hits while recording just one out in relief during Monday's 5-4 win over the Twins.

In addition to yielding a pair of doubles, Santana struggled to control his offerings, hitting the strike zone on just seven of his 13 pitches and getting charged with a wild pitch. The right-hander had entered the season near the bottom of the bullpen pecking order, and Monday's poor showing probably means he won't be seeing high-leverage work anytime soon.

Pirates' Edgar Santana: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday.

Santana has been a liability on the mound in the show this season. He's pitched 9.2 innings over 10 games and allowed seven runs on six walks and 12 hits, two of which were home runs. Santana will add depth to the bullpen now that he's back with the big club.

August 23, 2017 03:12 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Returning to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday.

With Angel Sanchez headed to the majors, Santana is returning to Indianapolis just a day after being recalled. He pitched two innings against the Dodgers on Tuesday and gave up two runs, which brought his ERA up to 6.52 for the season.

August 22, 2017 05:28 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Formally recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates recalled Santana from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

Santana will move up to the big leagues for the second time this season, with Steven Brault and Johnny Barbato coming along with him to offer reinforcement to a fatigued and injury plagued Pirates bullpen. The 25-year-old has submitted a 2.77 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 52 innings with Indianapolis on the season.

August 22, 2017 02:32 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Set to join Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis ahead of Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Pirates burned through five relievers in Monday's 12-inning loss in the series opener, so the addition of Santana will provide further reinforcement to a taxed bullpen. The 25-year-old has previously made nine appearances with the big club this season, serving up five runs and recording 12 strikeouts over 7.2 innings.

July 4, 2017 01:36 PM
Pirates' Edgar Santana: Sent packing to Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates demoted Santana to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

He collected 12 strikeouts in 7.2 relief innings (nine games), but Santana showed poor command (five walks) and compiled a 5.87 ERA. Although he's crafted a 1.93 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB for Indy, Santana found his first go-around in the majors a bit more challenging. There's a decent chance he'll find himself back in the Bucs' bullpen before season's end, though.
