Twins' Ervin Santana: Tabbed for Wild Card Start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana will start Tuesday's wild-card game against the Yankees, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Twins' No. 1 hurler will take his talents to the Bronx with the hope of knocking off the Yankees to earn a berth in the American League Division Series against Cleveland. Santana posted a career-best 3.28 ERA and 16-8 record this year.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Throws five scoreless in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana pitched five scoreless innings with just four hits allowed and a single strikeout during Thursday's loss to Cleveland. He didn't factor into the decision.

With Santana already announced as the Minnesota starter for the wild-card game next Tuesday, this was just a tune-up for the veteran righty. He cruised through five frames, throwing just 57 pitches and facing limited trouble. It's been another solid campaign for Santana, as he'll finish the 2017 regular season with 16 wins, a 3.28 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 7.1 K/9. Those numbers moved the fantasy needle in all settings.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Named as wild-card game starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana will take the mound for Tuesday's wild-card game against the Yankees or the Red Sox, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

This should come as no surprise, as Santana has been Minnesota's ace throughout the season, tossing 206.1 innings over the course of 32 starts in 2017, prior to Thursday's outing against the Indians. During that time, he's accumulated a 3.36 ERA and 1.13 WHIP while recording five complete games and three shutouts. The right-hander just faced the Yankees, who he will likely face Tuesday, giving up two earned runs off seven hits and one walk while striking out three in 5.2 innings. He will de deployed on normal rest following Thursday's start, and would only be available to start one game in the ALDS, were the Twins to advance.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Tabbed with Thursday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana is scheduled to start Thursday's game against the Indians, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It had been previously reported that Santana would next take the mound Friday against the Tigers. However, he'll draw a less-favorable matchup as the Twins plan to deploy him Thursday against Cleveland. Over his last three starts, Santana has posted a 2.41 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over 18.2 innings.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Collects 16th win Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (16-8) allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out five over seven innings to earn the win Saturday against the Tigers.

Santana was trailing 3-2 before the Twins erupted for eight runs in the top of the eighth inning to help him earn his 16th win of the season. He's allowed five earned runs over his last 18.2 innings covering three starts, and he's been a solid fantasy option down the stretch. He'll make his next start Friday against the Tigers.
