Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reported on Monday that the Mariners have tried to trade for Minnesota Twins righty Ervin Santana “multiple times.” Divish does add however that trade talks between the two...Read More

MLB trade rumors: Mariners have tried to acquire Twins’ Ervin Santana

A deal is unlikely now that the Twins have passed Seattle in the standings. The Mariners have worked to acquire Twins right-hander Ervin Santana “multiple times,” according to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times. Divish notes that the team’s pursuit of Santana is now “on hold” due to Minnesota passing Seattle in the AL Wild Card standings. Seattle is currently without starters James Paxton, Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma and Drew Smyly, so the club is obviously looking for rotation help on the waiver-trade market. Santana, who is under contract for next season, fits the mold of the...

Twins 6, Tigers 4: Road warriors

The Twins got a lead, lost it, got it back and held it. After the debacle that happened last night, the Twins struck quickly in the first on a solo dinger from Brian Dozier (23). In the second inning they piranha’d a run on sacrifice bunt, scoring Byron Buxton. Miguel Sano doubled that score with a 2-run blast to left in the 3rd inning, giving Ervin Santana a 4-0 lead. Now, stop me if you’ve heard this before, but the Tigers came back. John Hicks hit a sacrifice fly in the 4th inning. In the 5th, 2 runs scored on passed balls, a 3rd run scored on a Nick Castellanos single. Ervin was...

Twins 5, Brewers 4: Twins commit 3 errors but win on go-ahead balk

It was not the prettiest night in the field for the Twins, but they came back after falling behind early to win the series opener 5-4. Ervin Santana had a decent night on the mound, (4R 2ER in 6 IP) but was not helped by a few mistakes in the field and a long ball given up to Keon Broxton to give the Brewers a 3-0 lead in the 3rd. In the bottom of the 3rd Joe Mauer knocked in a run to bring the score to 3-1. He would later walk(of course) tying Kirby Puckett for second all time in Twins history for reaching base with 2,810. In the 4th it was Broxton again with an RBI double which would give...

Twins 5, Padres 2: Today’s Santana Channels Some Johan, Some Danny

How about a complete game and some RBIs to boot? Ervin Santana has had a fun year to watch. He’s Mr. Unpredictable, yet the outcome is more often good than bad. Some days he’s a strikeout machine. Others, a pitch-to-contact wizard whose sorcery defiles all logic of BAbip. And then there’s the times he gets bashed like a bachelor party pinata, just to stir things up. And then today he goes all slugger! With two outs in the second, Miguel Sano on third and Jorge Polanco on second, the Padres wisely walked Jason Castro to face Santana. Yeah, he so singled in two runs. Eduardo Escobar...
