Twins Injury Update: Danny Santana activated

By on 7/18/2014 06:45:00 PM

The Minnesota Twins begin the second half of the season tonight at home against the Tampa Bay Rays. At 44-50, the Twins need to quickly play better baseball to get back into the American League Central race. The first positive for the Twins came early, with the news that Danny Santana has been activated from the disabled list. Santana could be the spark at the top of the lineup the Twins need as they start the second half.

Our own Pete Schwichtenberg reported yesterday that Santana, who has been on the disabled list since June 26 with a bone bruise on his knee, went 0-for-4 with a strikeout for the Fort Myers Miracle while playing seven innings at shortstop.

Although Santana struggled at the plate, he has been activated for tonight's game, according to the MLBRosterMoves Twitter page.
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.
