Rays' Luis Santos: Eliminated from camp competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays reassigned Santos to their minor-league camp Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Santos made 15 appearances (one start) with the Blue Jays a season ago, but he didn't make much of a run at an Opening Day bullpen gig with the Rays after attending camp as a non-roster invitee. Expect him to report to Triple-A Durham to begin the season.

Rays' Luis Santos: Latches on with Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rays earlier in January, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Santos' deal includes an invitation to big-league spring training. The 27-year-old reliever appeared in 25 games with Toronto over the past two seasons, logging a 5.15 ERA in those outings.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

Santos will finish out the season with the Bisons after being designated for assignment earlier in the week and subsequently passing through waivers untouched. The 27-year-old owns a solid 2.85 ERA across 41 innings with Buffalo this season.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Monday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Santos was dropped from the team's 40-man roster to free up a spot for Murphy Smith, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding roster move. The 27-year-old Santos compiled a solid 2.85 ERA across 41 innings with the Bisons this season, though his 7.20 ERA across 20 big-league innings likely rendered him expendable. He'll likely report back to Buffalo should he pass through waivers untouched.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Santos to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Santos was used out of the bullpen both of the previous two days and accrued 34 pitches, making it unlikely that he would be available in relief for the next day or two. As a result, the Blue Jays decided to send him back to the minors in favor of a fresh bullpen arm in Justin Shafer, who was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Fans three in bullpen game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos (0-1) surrendered one run on three hits and one walk while striking out three across two innings as he was saddled with the loss Monday against Minnesota.

Santos was pulled after two innings, as Toronto elected to approach the series opener as a bullpen game. He allowed a run in the first inning on a triple. After making his first start of the 2018 campaign, Santos sits with an alarming 7.20 ERA and 1.90 WHIP with 12 strikeouts over 10 innings. He figures to be used in a bullpen role moving forward.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Starting Monday in bullpen game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos will make his first MLB start Monday against the Twins in what amounts to a "bullpen day" for the Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays were hopeful that Marco Estrada (hip) would be ready to come off the 10-day disabled list Monday to fill the vacancy in the team's rotation, but he'll instead make a minor-league rehab start before rejoining the big club over the weekend. As a result, the Blue Jays are expected to lean on a number of relievers to cover the series opener, with Santos likely to handle one of the heftier workloads. He has maxed out at 51 pitches and two innings in his five appearances with the big club this season, so that level of usage probably represents a good baseline of what to expect from him Monday.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Contract purchased from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos had his contract selected from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

Santos was added to the 40-man roster alongside Rhiner Cruz. On the flip side, Tim Mayza was optioned to the minors and Preston Guilmet was designated for assignment to make room. Across 17 appearances with Buffalo this year, Santos has logged a 2.52 ERA and 36:12 K:BB over 39.1 innings. He will likely serve in low-leverage situations for the Blue Jays while with the team.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Outrighted to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, MLB.com reports.

The reliever will remain in the Toronto organization after going unclaimed off waivers when he was dropped from the Blue Jays' 40-man roster earlier in the weekend. Santos made one appearance for the big club Thursday against the Indians, conceding six runs on five hits and three walks over 1.2 innings.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Santos had his contract purchased by the Blue Jays ahead of Game 2 of their doubleheader against the Indians on Thursday, and went on to allow six earned run off five hits and three walks during 1.2 innings of relief. In order to replenish its bullpen, Toronto recalled Jake Petricka in a corresponding move. Santos will be exposed to the waiver wire but will return to Triple-A Buffalo unless claimed by another organization.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Contract selected Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos' contract was purchased by the Blue Jays ahead of Game 2 of their doubleheader against the Indians, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The Blue Jays designated infielder Gift Ngoepe for assignment to clear a 40-man roster spot and optioned Danny Barnes to Triple-A Buffalo. Santos made a strong impression in spring training and posted strong numbers at Triple-A before his call-up Thursday, allowing just two earned runs over five appearances (9.1 IP) to go with eight strikeouts. Having a fresh arm like Santos will be particularly helpful after Game 1 went into extra innings.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Earns praise from Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos has been impressing people in the Blue Jays' organization so far this spring, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old righty reached the big leagues for the first time in 2017, putting up a 2.70 ERA in 16.2 innings. There was a lot of luck involved in that ERA, though, as it came with a 5.08 FIP, and it didn't line up with his performances in the minors. Still, he's yet to give up a hit in five Grapefruit League outings. He's very much a long shot to start in the big-league bullpen, but with continued strong performance he could return to Toronto sometime this summer.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Inks minor-league deal with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Monday.

Santos threw in the majors for the first time in his career last season. He pitched 16.2 innings over 10 games, during which gave up five runs on 15 hits and four walks, giving him a 2.70 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. While it was a solid showing, there wasn't much reason to believe that he'd be able to maintain it, as he has underwhelmed in Toronto's farm system. Between Double-A New Hampshire and Triple-A Buffalo in 2017, Santos owned a 4.16 ERA and 1.26 WHIP that had been built over 28 games (114.2 innings). Santos' deal includes an invitation to spring training.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Outrighted from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos was outrighted from the 40-man roster Monday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

For the first time in his career, the 26-year-old Santos threw in the majors during the 2017 season. He pitched 16.2 innings over 10 games and posted a 2.70 ERA to go with a 1.14 WHIP. However, it's entirely justified to wonder whether or not such a performance is sustainable for Santos. Between Double-A New Hampshire and Triple-A Buffalo in 2017, Santos appeared in 28 games (114.2 innings) and owned a collective ERA and WHIP of 4.16 and 1.26, respectively.

Blue Jays' Luis Santos: Records unconventional save Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos pitched three scoreless innings Sunday to record the save in the Blue Jays' 8-2 victory over the Tigers.

Roberto Osuna has been unavailable due to neck issues, so the Jays used top backup plan Ryan Tepera on Saturday and assigned Santos to eat innings in the series finale to protect a big lead. Though Santos has a 1.69 ERA in 5.1 frames in the first two games of his MLB career, this line and Sunday's work do not hint at Santos suddenly leapfrogging the closer hierarchy. Osuna's status will be updated heading into Monday action.
