Twins pitcher Ervin Santana getting stronger with changeup

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/18/15) Twins pitcher Ervin Santana has made a point this spring to improve his changeup. Santana worked in his pitch more Wednesday, despite giving up three runs on four hits.

"To me, this one was better than the last one," said Santana, who threw two scoreless frames last time out. "I threw less pitches and more innings, which is what you're looking for."

Santana knows he needs to have an effective offspeed pitch.

"I just have to keep practicing," Santana said. "As a starting pitcher, you need it. Either a changeup or a split or a cutter, you need that type of pitch."

Twins SP Ervin Santana dealt first spring loss Wednesday

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/15) Twins starting pitcher Ervin Santana was dealt his first spring loss Wednesday against the Orioles. Santana (2-1) allowed three runs on four hits in four innings during a 3-2 loss. He struck out three and issued no walks.

Santana threw a 1-2-3 first inning before running into trouble in the second inning. He allowed back-to-back singles before Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer. Delmon Young, who led off the inning with a single, was thrown out at second base trying to extend his hit to a double.

Santana then allowed another run in the third inning on Everth Cabrera's RBI groundout, which followed Dariel Alvarez's leadoff triple.

Santana finished his afternoon with a 1-2-3 fourth inning. He came into Wednesday's start having thrown four scoreless innings. His ERA now stands at 3.38.

Two shutout innings for Ervin Santana's Twins' debut

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/8/15) Ervin Santana made his first spring training start for the Twins on Sunday. The righthander allowed two hits in two scoreless innings, striking out three.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press kept an unofficial pitch count, reporting that Santana threw 19 strikes in his 26 pitches. He threw first-pitch strikes to six of the eight batters he faced and induced six swing-and-miss strikes. 

 

Twins' Ervin Santana working with a four-pitch mix

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/24/15) Twins pitcher Ervin Santana is working with a four-pitch mix now, according to MLB.com.

Santana has actually been using four pitches for a few seasons now, but said he feels more confident in his repertoire these days. "Now I have more confidence and more command of my changeup and my two-seam," he said. "I started doing that in Anaheim, but everyone just says I'm fastball-slider. So I'm like, 'All right. It's just fastball-slider. This is good.'" Santana said his ability to throw his changeup and two-seamer has caught some hitters off guard. 

Santana was able to throw a bullpen session on Tuesday, and said he was happy with the results. "Everything was coming pretty good. I was able to keep the ball down for the most part. I threw a couple sliders and a couple of changeups that were very good. So I was happy."

The 32-year-old posted a 3.95 ERA over 196 innings last year. 

Ervin Santana has team option for 2019 and vesting option for 2020

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/14) Twins starting pitcher Ervin Santana will make $13.5 million per season over the next four seasons, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. His contract also includes a $14 million team option for 2019, which has a $1 million buyout.

There is also a $14 million vesting option for 2020. It vests if Santana throws 400 innings in 2017 and 2018, and throws at least 200 innings in '18. He also has to pass a physical.
