Ervin Santana: Option declined, hits free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana's (finger) club option for 2019 was not picked up by the Twins on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Rather than paying him $14 million in 2019, the Twins will let Santana walk after a lingering finger issue limited the veteran right-hander to just five ineffective starts in 2018 (8.03 ERA, 5.8 K/9 and 3.3 HR/9 across 24.2 innings). The soon-to-be 36-year-old is just one season removed from an All-Star campaign in 2017 (3.28 ERA across 33 starts), so he should draw some interest in free agency.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Shut down for 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana is undering going PRP treatments to his right middle finger and will not pitch again in 2018, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Manager Paul Molitor indicated Aug. 20 the possibility of Santana being done for the season, and his continued treatment makes it an easy decision with the season drawing to a close. The Twins seem likely to exercise the $1 million buyout in the 36-year-old's contract this offseason instead of retaining him for $14 million in 2019. Santana made only five starts this season, allowing 22 runs across 24.2 innings, and allowed nine home runs.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Lands on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday due to recurring symptoms related to the original injury he suffered to his right middle finger prior to spring training, Dan Hayes of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

The 35-year-old required surgery in early February to address the issue, resulting in him opening the season on the 60-day DL before he debuted July 25. Though he was ostensibly healthy, Santana's velocity was down significantly in his five starts for the Twins, resulting in him turning in a 8.03 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 24.2 innings before Minnesota opted to shut him down again. With the Twins not in contention for the postseason, it wouldn't be surprising if Santana was shuttered for the rest of 2018 as the team looks to assess younger rotation options. Stephen Gonsalves was recalled from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move and will replace Santana in the rotation Monday against the White Sox.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Lasts only four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana allowed seven runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings during Thursday's 15-8 win over the Tigers. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

The Twins gave Santana eight runs of support over the first two innings, but he couldn't qualify for the win after loading the bases without recording an out during the fifth inning. The veteran right-hander has been less than stellar with a 8.03 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB in five starts since coming off the disabled list in late July. The 35-year-old is next expected to start against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Done in by long ball against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (0-1) took the loss Friday as the Twins dropped a 5-3 decision to the Tigers, coughing up five runs on three hits and two walks over six innings while striking out five.

All three hits Santana allowed went for extra bases -- a pair of two-run homers by Niko Goodrum and Jose Iglesias, plus a triple by JaCoby Jones. The veteran hurler's return from a finger injury has been a rough one so far, and and he now carries a 6.53 ERA through four starts. He'll next take the mound Thursday at home in a rematch against Detroit.
