Dennis Santana pitched 2.1 innings in relief on Wednesday versus the Twins and picked up the win.
Santana looked good in relief, coming in to strike out George Springer to end the eleventh while keeping the score knotted at 2-2, then went on to pitch the twelfth and thirteenth, recording four strikeouts, two walks, and no hits allowed.
Dennis Santana has been scratched from his major league debut due to a lat injury.
The severity of the injury isn't clear, but it could be a lengthy absence based on MRI results. It's hard to hold Santana in redraft leagues given he's not guaranteed a roster spot, much less a place in the rotation, when he returns.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are calling up right-handed pitching prospect Dennis Santana to the big league club, Robert Murray of FRS Baseball reports.
Santana was just promoted to Double-A on May 16, and it is possible that this promotion is related to Kenta Maeda's hip injury from Tuesday night. While nothing is official regarding Maeda yet, the early morning call-up of Santana, who was scheduled to start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday would seem to indicate that this move is related. Through 10 starts in the upper minors this season, Santana has a 2.54 ERA with 65 strikeouts in 49 2/3 innings.
