Insight: Santana was mere weeks away from making his Orioles debut. Now there's a strong possibility the 35-year-old will never throw another pitch in the major leagues. If injuries hadn't derailed his career there's little doubt Santana would have been a Hall of Famer.
 
6/3/2014 7:05:00 PM
Description: According to Roch Kubatko of masnsports.com, the Orioles plan to have Johan Santana join the rotation on June 19.
Insight: Santana was one of the best pitchers in baseball from 2004-08, but he's been plagued by injuries since 2009 and hasn't pitched since 2012 due to a torn capsule in his shoulder. He's worth stashing in AL-only leagues, but everyone else can take a wait-and-see approach.
 
6/2/2014 7:46:00 PM
Description: Baltimore added Johan Santana to its major league roster Monday and immediately placed him on the disabled list.
Insight: He could join Baltimore's rotation later this month. Santana can't throw as hard as he used to so he'll have to rely on his control when he returns to the big leagues.
 
5/27/2014 2:23:00 PM
Description: Orioles left-hander Johan Santana threw 4 1/3 imnnings in an extended spring training game and should be ready for a minor league rehab start shortly.
Insight: Santana has lost a lot of his velocity, throwing around 86-88 mph, but he knows how to pitch. Although he hopes to be ready to pitch with the big club in June, fantasy owners should take a wait and see attitude.

Insight: Santana will make his first extended spring training start on Monday. He's lost a lot of his velocity but that's not necessarily a deal breaker for Santana, who was one of the craftiest pitchers in the big leagues during his heydey. Soon we'll find out how much the 35-year-old has left in the tank.
 
3/4/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: The Orioles have signed Johan Santana to a minor league contract, according to Jon Heyman of cbssports.com.

Description: New York lefthander Johan Santana will have season-ending shoulder surgery on Tuesday. SOURCE: Adam Rubin, ESPN

3/28/2013 7:02:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Adam Rubin is reporting that a recent MRI on Mets starter Johan Santana's injured shoulder revealed some troubling results. It appears that Santana has re-torn the anterior capsule in his left shoulder and is likely headed for surgery.

3/24/2013 2:27:00 PM
Description: Mets manager Terry Collins said that Johan Santana "may take six weeks to get where he wants to be" in his arm-strengthening process. SOURCE: NJ.com

2/26/2013 6:00:00 PM
Description: Mets manager Terry Collins said starter Johan Santana is "making strides" in his flat ground work, according to ESPN New York. The lefty is trying to build up his shoulder in time for the season opener.
Insight: The Mets have previously announced that Santana will start Opening Day, but you always have to worry about his health. The lefty had a 6-4 record and 2.76 ERA after June last season but went 0-5 with a 15.63 ERA in his final five starts of the season before being shut down in late August due to a back injury.
 
2/22/2013 4:30:00 PM
Description: Mets starter Johan Santana is having his 2013 debut pushed back until the week of March 10.
Insight: The Mets have previously announced that Santana will start Opening Day, but you always have to worry about his health and this isn't a good start. The lefty had a 6-4 record and 2.76 ERA after June last season but went 0-5 with a 15.63 ERA in his final five starts of the season before being shut down in late August due to a back injury. Like every season, fantasy owners should approach Santana with caution.

Insight: Santana was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday. An MRI revealed no structural damage but the team is well out of the race and doesn't need to risk Santana's health. The lefty lost his last five starts and saw his ERA increase from 2.76 to 4.85 in that span.
 
Cold8/21/2012 6:33:00 PM
Description: The Mets have not yet decided whether starter Johan Santana will be shut down for the season but they have ruled him out for his scheduled start Thursday, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com.
