Twins' Ervin Santana: Rehab shifts to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (finger) has had his rehab assignment transferred to Double-A Chattanooga, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Santana built up to four innings in his second and final rehab start for High-A Fort Myers, allowing two runs on three hits while striking out two. There have been concerns about velocity -- he couldn't even reach 90 mph with his fastball in his first start back -- and it's possible the Twins will exhaust most of his 30-day rehab window before returning him to the majors, even with a pressing need in the rotation.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Gets another rehab start at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (finger) will make the second start of his minor-league rehab assignment Thursday at High-A Fort Myers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Santana made two rehab appearances in late May before being pulled off the assignment after experiencing renewed soreness in the surgically repaired finger on his right hand. He was cleared to restart the assignment last week and gave up one run over three innings in his first start for Fort Myers, but still showcased diminished velocity in the outing. On a more encouraging note, Santana reported no physical issues in his return to the mound, but he'll likely need to add a tick or two to his fastball and build up his pitch count in his subsequent starts in the minors before the Twins are comfortable adding him back to the big-league rotation. He's slated to throw around four innings or 60 pitches in Thursday's start.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Velocity struggles resurface in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (finger) resumed his rehab assignment Saturday with High-A Fort Myers, tossing three innings of one-run ball. He gave up two hits and no walks and struck out two while tossing 36 pitches (29 strikes).

Though his surface results were solid enough, Santana's fastball failed to touch 90 miles per hour during the outing, according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The downturn in velocity -- Santana's four-seamer averaged 93.4 mph in 2017 -- has been the major hangup in Santana's rehab for weeks, and it's beginning to look like the 35-year-old may simply have to survive with diminished stuff. The right-hander is expected to make at least one more start of around four innings for Fort Myers this week before the Twins determine the next step in his rehab. Santana has been sidelined since Feb. 6 after requiring surgery to address discomfort in his right middle finger.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Ready for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (finger) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Fort Myers on Saturday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Santana was apparently lacking velocity on his fastball as recently as Friday, but he must have gotten it back in his latest session Monday, as the Twins would not have deemed him ready for a rehab assignment otherwise. The Twins will have 30 days to activate Santana once he throws his first rehab outing, so he is on track to make his first 2018 start for the team at some point in July.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Still lacking velocity in throwing sessons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana (finger) failed to touch 90 mph in a 45-pitch live batting practice session on Friday and will need increased velocity before going out on a minor league rehab assignment, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "I can't say I'm surprised. I think he's been so worried about feel of the ball and the grip here for a long time," said manager Paul Molitor. "Hopefully we're just about over that hurdle. That might free him up mentally to go ahead and not have any inhibition about letting it go."

Santana will thrown batting practice again Monday. It looks like his expected return date is now being pushed back until after the All-Star break or longer. Santana continues to work back from a procedure on his right middle finger in February. He worked his way back to a few rehab outings in May, but was shut down due to discomfort in his surgically-repaired finger. He's recently started throwing again off the mound.
