Twins | Ervin Santana roughed up by Bucs

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 19:55:40 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana allowed eight runs - six earned - and eight hits with four walks and just three strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a loss against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) breezed through his past two starts, and he has been money on the road going 2-0 with a 0.76 ERA in three outings. However, in two showings at Target Field he is 0-1 with a 11.17 ERA. FantasyScore players should avoid Santana until he irons out his problems at home, but feel free to use him on the road.

Twins | Ervin Santana brilliant again

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 19:58:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana delivered his second straight scoreless outing, allowing four hits and striking out seven over eight innings in a win against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has been excellent in three of his four stats since serving a suspension for PED use, and he makes a great source of cap relief at his current price at FantasyScore.

Twins | Ervin Santana cruises through first win

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 05:33:48 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana threw 7 2/3 scoreless innings with a strikeout while allowing just five hits and one run during the Twins' 5-0 win over the Oakland Athletics Friday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has been all over the map through his first three starts this season. He fanned eight batters in his first start, allowed six earned runs in his second outing, and now in his third bid, Santana fans a single batter and doesn't allow a run. He is worth owning in all seasonal formats and starting at FantasyScore in favorable matchups.

Twins | Ervin Santana has good marks against A's

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 10:08:20 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana is 14-6 with a 2.12 ERA in 178 1/3 innings in 26 career starts against the Oakland Athletics, who he faces Friday, July 17. Santana has a 2.12 ERA in 13 career games at O.co Coliseum.

Fantasy Tip: At his price, Santana ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is surely an intriguing second pitcher on FantasyScore to kick off the second half of the season. The A's sit in the middle of the pack in OPS (.720) against right-handed pitchers this year, but they've been better at home, surprisingly.

Twins | Ervin Santana strong in return

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 15:50:43 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana struck out eight batters in eight innings of work Sunday, June 5, as the Twins knocked off the Kansas City Royals 3-2. He did not get the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) overcame the most difficult start, his first one, but got a no-decision as Blaine Boyer picked up the loss. Still, this is a big hurdle for Santana to overcome and he is a decent option for FantasyScore formats.

Twins | Ervin Santana set for Sunday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 11:13:29 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana is set to return from his 80-game suspension and start against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, July 5. Manager Paul Molitor said the team could move a starter to the bullpen or go with a six-man rotation to make room for Santana in the rotation. Santana tossed eight scoreless innings in his third and final rehab start for Class AAA Rochester Tuesday, June 30. General manager Terry Ryan is against a six-man rotation, but in this case it would only be for a week heading into the All-Star break. Santana had a 1.84 ERA in 20 1/3 innings with 11 strikeouts and four walks in his three rehab starts in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should immediately be snatched up if he's available on your league's waiver wire. He can definitely make a big impact for your pitching staff in the second half. On FantasyScore, it's a big risk to go with Santana immediately against the Royals Sunday. KC is an aggressive club that strikes out rarely.

Twins | Ervin Santana near return

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 15:03:08 -0700

Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor said he has not determined how the starting rotation will be reshuffled when SP Ervin Santana is eligible to pitch on Sunday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will definitely be inserted, but the question is who leaves. Speculation had Tom Milone ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) being removed, but Trevor May ($5,400, 10.8 of cap) could be a casualty with a 4-6 record and a 4.62 ERA. Or Molitor could go with a six-man rotation. Stay tuned to see what happens.

Twins | Ervin Santana getting closer to return

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:52:10 -0700

In his second minor league start for Class AAA Rochester, Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (suspension) allowed three runs on seven hits over seven innings Thursday, June 25, with two walks and three strikeouts. He served up a pair of home runs and threw 65 of his 97 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will make one more start in the minors before being activated. He is tentatively set to make his return to the majors July 5, but FantasyScore owners should wait one or two starts before using him to see how effective he is.

Twins | Ervin Santana has successful outing

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 11:26:17 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (suspension) allowed one run on five hits over 5 2/3 innings in his first start for Class AAA Rochester Saturday, June 20, with two walks and three strikeouts. He threw 53 of his 88 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is tentatively set to return to the majors July 5. Avoid using him in FantasyScore immediately after he is activated but seasonal owners in AL-only and deep mixed leagues should consider stashing him if he is still available.

Twins | Tommy Milone could lose rotation spot

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 17:28:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone could lose his spot in the starting rotation when SP Ervin Santana is activated from the suspended list next month.

Fantasy Tip: The Twins have not made an official announcement on who will be bumped from the rotation, although Milone ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) hasn't pitched poorly enough to lose his spot. He is 3-1 with a 3.67 ERA through seven starts this season.
