Ervin Santana is sitting at home. Meanwhile, spring training games will start this week. His price is not coming down any further, however, as CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports Santana is still seeking a contract around four years and $50 million.
Yes, it’s what Garza and Ubaldo got, but they signed earlier and didn’t have draft pick compensation attached to them. At this point you have to think Santana is more likely to get what he wants if he either waits for the pitching injuries to pile up as spring wears on — as they always do — or to wait until June when the draft pick compensation falls off.
