    Jun 27, 2014, 4:28 PM EDT

    Jun 27, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    Chase Headley Getty

  10. Twins place Danny Santana on the disabled list

    Jun 27, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    Danny Santana Twins

    Danny Santana has out-performed expectations by a huge margin since the Twins called him up in early May, hitting .328 with an .814 OPS in 37 games after never cracking a .750 OPS at any level in the minors, but now the 23-year-old rookie is headed to the disabled list.

    The ongoing knee injury may help explain why the Indians have been so hesitant to sign Masterson to a contract extension at what were reported to be very reasonable demands, and perhaps it’s also why Masterson’s demands have been so reasonable with free agency right around the corner.

    Jun 25, 2014, 5:17 PM EDT

    pete kozma getty

    Pete Kozma was the Cardinals’ Opening Day shortstop last season and a not-insignificant number of people misguidedly believed that he had long-term upside based on paying more attention to his flukey 26-game stint in 2012 rather than his lengthy track record of mediocrity.
