Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was optioned to the alternate training site Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com 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 MLB.com 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.

August 28, 2018 06:00 PM
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.

August 22, 2018 05:04 PM
Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Throws 30-pitch bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (shoulder) fired a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, topping out at 90 mph, J.P. Hoornstra of The Orange County Register reports.

The bullpen session was the first mound work for Santana since he injured his rotator cuff in June. Santana was able to touch 90 mph with his fastball, which is off the 92.9 mph average posted in a brief stint in the majors this season. The Dodgers didn't provide a projected return date for the 22-year-old, but at this point, a return this season appears unlikely.

August 20, 2018 02:24 PM
Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Set to resume mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana will throw off a mound Tuesday for the first time since being shut down with a rotator cuff strain in early June.

Santana has already spent the required 60 days on the disabled list, but given that he's just now returning to mound work, his return doesn't seem imminent. His recovery timetable should become clearer once he gets back on the mound.

June 10, 2018 02:12 PM
Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Moves to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (shoulder) was shifted to the 60-day disabled list Saturday due to his right rotator cuff strain, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Manager Dave Roberts said he doesn't believe Santana needs surgery, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports, but he may not resume any baseball activities until July.

June 8, 2018 10:20 PM
Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Lands on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (lat) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday.

As expected, Santana will head to the disabled list after his MRI revealed a right rotator cuff strain. In corresponding moves, Brock Stewart was sent down to Triple-A Oklahoma City, while Pat Venditte and Adam Liberatore were recalled.

June 8, 2018 10:20 PM
Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Likely headed for DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana is dealing with right rotator cuff strain, and he'll likely require a stint on the disabled list, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The results of Santana's MRI showed he had a torn right lat, although the severity of the injury remains unclear. If he does land on the disabled list, the Dodgers figure to call up additional arms to provide assistance out of the bullpen.

June 7, 2018 04:32 PM
Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Set for MRI on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (lat) will undergo an MRI on Friday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Santana was scratched from his scheduled start against the Pirates on Thursday due to right lat soreness, and the Dodgers will send him for some tests in the coming days to determine the severity of the issue. Lat issues often tend to linger, so the team figures to proceed cautiously with the 22-year-old prospect. Santana allowed five runs across 3.2 innings in his lone big-league appearance prior to suffering the injury.

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Dealing with lat soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was scratched from Thursday's start against the Pirates due to right lat soreness, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

Santana was set to make his first career big-league start before the injury cropped up and forced Daniel Hudson to start in his place. The severity of the injury remains unclear at this point, as does a possible timetable for his return. With the Dodgers off the schedule twice next week, the team could move forward with a four-man rotation until June 19 if it chooses.

Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Scratched from Thursday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was scratched from Thursday's scheduled start against Pittsburgh, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Santana was set to make his first start at the big-league level. At this point in time, there has been no reason given as to why he was removed, but expect an update in the coming hours. Daniel Hudson will start in his place.

June 3, 2018 06:08 PM
Dodgers' Dennis Santana: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana will start Thursday's game against the Pirates, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Santana made his big-league debut in a shaky long-relief appearance Saturday at Coors Field, where he allowed five runs on six hits over 3.2 innings. The Dodgers were undeterred by the rocky showing, as they'll pencil him in for his first career start Thursday in Pittsburgh. If he performs well, Santana could enjoy an extended stay in the rotation due to the myriad of injuries to the other Dodgers starters.
