What sort of details could impact the upcoming Twins tenures of newly signed right-hander Ervin Santana and right fielder Torii Hunter? Let's take a look: The most interesting aspect of Santana's four-year, $55 million deal, according to a source with direct knowledge, is the provision that reads "Player passes physical."
