Angels’ Santana no-hits Indians, 5 years ago today

On Wednesday, July 27, 2011, at Jacobs Field, Santana struck out 10 and walked just one as the Angels beat the Indians 3-1. The Indians scored their run in the first when …

Santana: I wanted to pitch 10th inning

Braves 2, Twins 0: RISP-ed

It was a quick and boring ballgame tonight at Target Field. Ervin Santana went all 9 innings for the Twins, in what would be a tough-luck loss for the righty. Braves 3B Adonis Garcia homered to left in the 2nd. In the 3rd, an AJ Pierzynksi double followed by a Eric Aybar single would set the Braves up for their second run. Jace Peterson grounded into a double play, which is never what you want to do. Luckily for him, in this instance it allowed a run to score anyway and he got a nice RBI to put on the back of his baseball card. Santana didn't make much for mistakes afterwords, but the...

Sox Trade Target Ervin Santana Wins Again Today

Ervin Santana Pitching Today ()Multiple sources have reported that the Red Sox are talking with Minnesota about a trade for starter Ervin Santana. Today, the 33-year old right turned in another solid performance—going seven innings and giving up just one earned run as he out-dueled Tiger Justin Verlander. Santana is 3-8 with a 3.93 ERA this season for the woeful Twinkies. Even with the acquisition of Drew Pomeranz and the recent good start by Eduardo Rodriguez, the Red Sox have to be viewing the #5 starter spot as 'up in the air'. Santana—who would not cost a whole lot in terms of top...

Terry Ryan Offers to Help Move Ervin Santana’s Stuff If You Will Trade for Him

The team looks to spice up a dormant trade market with favors, raw manpower. As the All-Star break nears and the Twins' status as sellers is cemented, the lack of suitors for the team's available players is evident. That's why Minnesota GM Terry Ryan has sweetened the deal considerably. "We will help you move Ervin Santana's stuff. Every last piece of furniture, no questions asked." Santana, coming off a brilliant 2-hit shutout on Wednesday, is thought to be the most attractive piece for teams looking to add starting pitching help. But so far, no one is biting. "The phones aren't ringing...

Ervin Santana just pitched the best game for the Twins since 2007

You don’t need a metric invented by guru Bill James to know that Ervin Santana’s two-hit shutout Wednesday was a gem — and one of the best-pitched games by a Twin in recent memory. But a James invention called Game Score does give us one way of measuring just how good Santana was — and just how rare his performance was in the context of recent Twins pitchers. Game Score, per Baseball Reference, is derived thusly: Start with 50 points. Add 1 point for each out recorded, (or 3 points per inning). Add 2 points for each inning completed after the 4th. Add 1 point for each strikeout....

Twins 4, Athletics 0: The Santanas Lead The Way

Danny and Ervin Santana led the Twins to victory in the rubber game this afternoon. It's too bad that this game wasn't televised in Twins Territory because we missed one of the best pitching performances from a Twins pitcher this season. Ervin Santana, who has been recently scouted by the Texas Rangers, made a solid case that he could be a valuable trade chip as he pitched a complete game 2-hit shutout. Meanwhile, the offense was led by Danny Santana as he fell just a home run short of the cycle today. Ervin Santana and A's starter Sonny Gray traded zeroes for the first half of the game...
