Twins | Ervin Santana pitches well at home

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 15:25:01 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana earned his first home victory at Target Field Sunday, Aug. 30, as the Twins beat the Houston Astros 7-5. It was Santana's 15th career game with double-digit strikeouts. He entered Sunday 0-1 with a 9.77 ERA in three starts at Target Field since returning from an 80-game suspension to start the season.

Fantasy Tip: It would have looked foolish to start Santana ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) in your lineup with that record, but he pretty much shut the Astros down. This might mean a shift in your thinking for Santana as far as when to start him.

Twins | Ervin Santana continues to struggle

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 09:05:09 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana has allowed 31 earned runs in 30 1/3 innings in his last six starts after giving up five runs and eight hits in just 2 2/3 innings to the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has been a big disappointment to his owners this season after returning from a long suspension, and he shouldn't be trusted on FantasyScore until he shows better results.

Twins | Ervin Santana suffers loss

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 19:04:32 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (2-4) allowed four runs on seven hits over 7 2/3 innings in a loss to the New York Yankees Wednesday, Aug. 19, with two walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) fell to 0-4 with an 8.48 ERA over his last five starts and is 0-8 in his last 11 career starts against the Yankees. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, Aug. 25, but FantasyScore owners are advised to look elsewhere for pitching options.

Twins | Ervin Santana struggles against Yanks

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 09:27:17 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana hasn't beaten the New York Yankees since 2008, and he is 5-8 with a 6.34 ERA in 16 career starts against them. Santana is facing the Yankees Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) hasn't been as sharp as most had hoped since returning from his suspension, and a matchup against the Yankees is not what the doctor ordered on FantasyScore. He's a very risky pitcher to rely on today.

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.
