Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana received an 80-game suspension without pay Friday, April 3, after he tested positive for Stanozolol.
Fantasy Tip: Santana can be dropped in the majority of leagues, as he is only a stash candidate in AL-only and cavernous mixed formats. Check back for an update on who will replace Santana in the rotation, but early candidates include Mike Pelfrey, Alex Meyer and Trevor May. Whoever joins the rotation won't push the needle in the majority of formats, though.

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana has started to throw a changeup and a two-seam pitch in addition to a fastball and a slider. Santana said he started to have confidence in those pitches so he has worked them in on a more regular basis.
Fantasy Tip: Santana is trying to keep his career renaissance going as he threw 179 strikeouts last year and posted a 3.95 ERA. He may make for a decent pitching option in deeper mixed leagues, but switching from the NL to the AL and wondering if the comeback will last are two question marks.
