    Jun 27, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

  18. 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.
