News: Santana didn't receive a decision Monday against Philadelphia despite being solid in his second start for the Braves. Impact: The only run against Santana over six innings of work came on a Ryan Howard homer. He has a 0.64 ERA through two starts.(STATS, 5:27pm)
Mon. Apr 14, 2014
News: Santana looked strong again Monday, going six innings of one-run ball in a no-decision. Impact: Santana has been masterful in two starts this season, allowing just one run and seven hits in 14 innings. He'll look to keep the hot start going this weekend against the Mets, a team Santana has already beaten this season.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Santana allowed only three hits over eight scoreless innings in his Atlanta debut, Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs and the Braves held off the New York Mets 4-3 on Wednesday night. Impact: Santana (1-0) was sharp from the start, throwing 28 strikes in his first 29 pitches through three innings. He finished with six strikeouts and no walks and retired the last seven batters. Santana spent nine years in the American League - eight with the Angels and the 2013 season with Kansas City - before joining the Braves. He had never pitched at Turner Field before Wednesday night.(STATS, 7:05pm)
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Santana allowed three hits and zero runs with six strikeouts over eight innings pitched on his way to picking up the win Wednesday against the Mets. Impact: Santana was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to make the start on Wednesday, and it definitely didn't look like his spring absence had a major effect on his performance. He showcased excellent command, as 65 of his 88 pitches were strikes, and he didn't walk a single batter. Santana's debut is certainly a cause for optimism in both Braves' fans and fantasy owners, as it looks as if he'll provide some stability to a rotation decimated by injuries.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Santana was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday. Impact: Santana's late signing with the Braves left him a little bit behind schedule in his preparation for the regular season, but he'll join the parent club to make his team debut Wednesday vs. the Mets.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Santana is set to start Wednesday against the Mets, Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Santana gave up five earned runs on eight hits and four walks over 5.1 innings in his start for Triple-A Gwinnett last Friday, but Braves officials said he pitched well despite the ugly numbers. The right-hander signed with the Braves on March 12, after the team lost both Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy to elbow injuries. Atlanta will need to make a roster move prior to Wednesday's game.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Santana is slated to make his first start for the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday against the New York Mets. Impact: The 31-year-old right-hander agreed to a $14.1 million, one-year contract on March 12. He started for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday and allowed six runs - five earned - and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings during a 12-7 win over Durham. Atlanta opened with a four-man rotation while waiting for Santana, left-hander Mike Minor and right-hander Gavin Floyd to join the pitching staff. Minor's spring training was slowed by tendinitis in his left shoulder, and Floyd is returning from elbow surgery last May 7.(STATS, 4:24pm)
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: The Braves are still leaning toward starting Santana against the Mets on Wednesday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Impact: Santana was knocked around for six runs (five earned) on eight hits and four walks, while striking out three over 5.1 innings, in his first start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday. It seems the Braves are at least thinking about having the right-hander make another minor league start, but the team will wait until after his side session Sunday or Monday, before making any concrete decisions.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 1, 2014
News: Santana is tentatively scheduled to start April 9 against the Mets, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Manager Fredi Gonzalez left himself some wiggle room, saying that Santana may need two more minor league starts before making his Braves debut, but it's looking like Friday's outing with Triple-A Gwinnett will be the right-hander's final tune-up. Santana was signed late in the spring after the team lost both Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy to Tommy John surgery. The 31-year-old right-hander posted a 3.24 ERA across 32 starts for the Royals last season, his fourth straight season making 30-plus starts, and his strikeout rate could tick up a bit pitching in one of the weakest divisions in baseball.(RotoWire, )
