Twins | Ervin Santana starting Saturday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:43:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (back) will return from the disabled list to start against the Chicago White Sox Saturday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Santana's return could mean Alex Meyer is bumped to the bullpen or back to the minors. The White Sox have the best record in the AL and are no slouches offensively, so you should certainly think twice before activating Santana and throwing him back into your starting lineups immediately.

Twins | Ervin Santana could return Saturday

Mon, 02 May 2016 15:20:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (back) could come off the disabled list to face the Chicago White Sox Saturday, May 7, if he doesn't suffer any setbacks during a 30- or 40-pitch simulated game Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Santana, who is the Twins' ace of the staff, should've remained stashed in all formats after landing on the DL. You may want to keep him out in his first start back if it's against the White Sox this weekend, though. Chicago has been clicking to begin the year and are one of the more dangerous lineups in the AL.

Twins | Ervin Santana throwing sim game

Mon, 02 May 2016 14:00:42 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (back) said he will throw a two-inning simulated game Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Santana could be back from the DL when he's eligible unless he suffers a setback, and he'll have a rotation spot to return to. He posted a 3.15 ERA and 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings in his first four starts of the year and should remain stashed in most fantasy leagues. Alex Meyer, Tyler Duffey or Jose Berrios could be in danger of losing their spots when Santana is ready.

Twins | Ervin Santana close to returning

Sun, 01 May 2016 16:42:19 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (back) will travel with the team for the upcoming road trip against the Cleveland Indians, general manager Terry Ryan said Sunday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Santana should return to action soon, but you can afford to take a wait-and-see approach with him before deciding whether or not he is worth adding.

Twins | Ervin Santana scheduled to throw

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:55:09 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (back) is scheduled to have a light throwing session Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Paul Molitor said he expects Santana to be ready to come off the 15-day disabled list when eligible, but fantasy owners should avoid him until he can make it through a full start without any setbacks.

Twins | Ervin Santana, Kyle Gibson will be ready

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:03:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins SPs Ervin Santana (back) and Kyle Gibson (shoulder) are both expected to be ready to come off the disabled list when they are eligible, according to manager Paul Molitor. Santana is dealing with a lower back strain, while Gibson is suffering from a right shoulder strain.

Fantasy Tip: Gibson, who was 0-3 with a 6.10 ERA in four starts, could have his rotation spot in jeopardy if top pitching prospect Jose Berrios impresses in his opportunity. Gibson should only be stashed in deeper AL-only leagues, while Berrios could be universally owned if he lives up to his billing against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday.

Twins | Ervin Santana, Kyle Gibson to DL

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:23:43 -0700

Minnesota Twins SPs Ervin Santana (back) and Kyle Gibson (shoulder) were placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 26. Santana is dealing with back spasms, while Gibson has a shoulder strain.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Duffey replaced Santana after he was scratched from his last start. Stash Santana in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, while Gibson can likely be jettisoned everywhere. Jose Berrios, the club's top pitching prospect, will be called up to make his major league debut Wednesday. The way Minnesota's rotation has underwhelmed, Berrios may be one of the better arms, meaning he could stick around for a while. Grab him everywhere.

Twins | Ervin Santana likely to DL

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:09:24 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (back) is likely to land on the disabled list. SP Jose Berrios is being called up from the minor leagues and will make the start Wednesday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Berrios is Minnesota's top pitching prospect, and his upside is very high with three above-average swing-and-miss offerings. He should be scooped up anywhere that he's available, even if his stay in the big leagues is short once Santana returns from injury. Berrios could also take the spot of struggling starter Kyle Gibson eventually if he pitches well in his first MLB taste.

Twins | Ervin Santana plays catch

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:34:19 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (back) played catch Monday, April 25, but from all indications he's still sore.

Fantasy Tip: It's up in the air whether Santana will make his next start, but you should be cautious deploying him if he does. Tyler Duffey could make another start in place of Santana. The young righty doesn't strike out many and has fleeting value in AL-only leagues if he makes another start.

Twins | Ervin Santana scratched from start

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:15:47 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana (back) was scratched from his start with a sore lower back Sunday, April 24, against the Washington Nationals. SP Tyler Duffey was called up from the minors to pitch in Santana's spot. Manager Paul Molitor said Santana needs to throw a bullpen session before hopefully returning in about a week. Molitor said the team won't rush Santana.

Fantasy Tip: Hang on to Santana for now while he heals. Duffey showed excellent control as a rookie in 2015 and induces plenty of ground balls, but his ability to generate strikeouts is in question with his offspeed pitches. He may only stick around for a little bit until Santana returns, so he's a speculative flyer in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues right now.
