The Baltimore Orioles recalled SP Johan Santana (shoulder) from Triple-A Norfolk Monday, June 2, and placed him on the 15-day disabled list.

Updating a previous report, the Baltimore Orioles have laid out a plan for the return of SP Johan Santana (shoulder). The plan has not been agreed upon yet. He would pitch June 2 in extended spring training, make another start June 8 for Triple-A Norfolk and then a final rehab outing with Double-A Bowie June 13. Barring any setbacks, he might return to the majors by June 18.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Santana will go for that, as he has an opt-out clause June 1. However, this sounds like his best avenue to the majors in a short amount of time, so he might want to take it. As far as fantasy value, he has plenty of prove before fantasy owners can rely upon him again.
