Santillan wasn't very sharp on Tuesday, allowing multiple baserunners in each inning he pitched. He has now failed to complete five innings in three of his four major league starts. He's allowed seven runs in 16.2 innings with a 20:10 K:BB. Once Sonny Gray returns, Santillan's role with the Reds may change.

Santillan surrendered a solo homer to Freddie Freeman in the first; other than that, it was totally smooth sailing for the rookie pitcher en route to his first quality start in the majors. He lowered his season ERA to 3.29, and now has 16 strikeouts in 13.2 innings. He'll take on the Padres at home next week.

Santillan wasn't very sharp on Friday, and the Reds decided to remove him for a pinch hitter in the fourth. The bullpen surrendered five runs, saddling Santillan with the loss. His future in the Cincinnati bullpen is in question with a couple starters due to return from injury soon.

Santillan came just one out away from earning a win in his debut, but shaky command in the fifth inning was grounds for his removal. He is projected to make another start this weekend, and it will be a far tougher matchup against the Padres on the road.
