Twins Injury Update: Danny Santana commences rehab

By on 7/15/2014 10:00:00 AM

While Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, hosted All-Star festivities last night, Danny Santana was gearing up in his final rehab game for Fort Myers. While the Twins are 11th in the league in runs scored, they can use all the help they can get to overcome a pitching staff that is 26th in the Major Leagues in ERA. The hope is Santana can provide some spark to the lineup when he returns following the All-Star break.

I reported on July 1 that Santana, who had a bone bruise in his left knee that occurred when he felt something twist running between first and second base in the game on June 26, was optimistic that he could be ready when his 15 days on the disabled list were up.

According to, Santana played center field and hit third for the Fort Myers Miracle last night. He went 0-for-3 in the game.  In 25 Minor League games this season, Santana is batting .260 with seven RBI and four stolen bases.

Santana, a 23-year old shortstop and outfielder from the Dominican Republic, is in his first Major League season. In 37 games with the Twins, he's batting .328 with two home runs, 16 RBI and six stolen bases.
