Rangers' Dennis Santana: Recalled by Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Juan Toribio of 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday due to the side effects of his coronavirus vaccine shot, Juan Toribio of 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana could make the Opening Day roster in a bullpen role, Jesse Sanchez of 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was optioned to the alternate training site Saturday, Ken Gurnick of 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Included on 30-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana is part of the Dodgers' Opening Day roster.

Santana struggled in the minors last season but rode a strong spring to a spot on the big-league roster. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role for the Dodgers this season.

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Enjoying outstanding spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana has pitched 5.1 scoreless innings in Cactus League play, allowing three hits and one walk while striking out 10.

Santana has been a pleasant surprise this spring for the Dodgers following a 2019 campaign in which he struggled with a 6.94 ERA at the Triple-A level. Per Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times, the right-hander has forced his way into the conversation for an Opening Day spot in the bullpen, particularly considering the struggles of fellow reliever Adam Kolarek (15.43 ERA this spring).

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, Ken Gurnick of reports.

Santana was the first reliever used after starter Caleb Ferguson on Sunday for the Dodgers' bullpen day, but he allowed three runs on three hits and three walks. The 23-year-old had severe issues with his control as he also had a wild pitch and hit a batter, though he did manage four strikeouts. Josh Sborz was called up from Oklahoma City in a corresponding move to provide a fresh arm for the bullpen.

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Could get win Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana could qualify for the win in Saturday's game against the Brewers, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Caleb Ferguson will be the Dodgers' starter, but he will be limited to either three innings or 45 pitches, so he won't qualify for the win, even if the Dodgers have the lead when he exits. Manager Dave Roberts said Santana will pitch at some point in this game, making him the most likely Dodger to get a win Saturday. Santana is being used as a long reliever right now, but the Dodgers still view him as a starter long-term.

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Heading to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana will be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Santana will join the team for the series finale in Denver with the bullpen in need of a fresh arm. The 22-year-old made his lone major-league appearance last season and allowed five runs on six hits over 3.2 innings.

March 11, 2019 04:44 PM
Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was optioned to the minors on Monday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Santana allowed five runs in 3.2 innings in his first taste of the big leagues last season but was shut down for the season in mid-June shortly after his first appearance. He has just 11 innings under his belt at the Triple-A level, so he'll remain there until another opportunity opens up.

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Rehab start scheduled for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (shoulder) will make a rehab start Friday for High-A Rancho Cucamonga, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Santana has been out since early June with a right rotator cuff strain. The timing of his rehab assignment leaves him the chance to return to action before the end of the season if all goes well, though he's made just one career major-league appearance, so there's no guarantee he ends up pitching even if healthy.

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Throws live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (shoulder) threw a live batting practice session Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

Santana only recently returned to the mound after injuring his rotator cuff back in June. It's unclear whether or not he'll make it back in time to pitch before the end of the season.
