Twins P Aaron Thompson unlikely to throw Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) After throwing 35 pitches in Sunday's game, Twins manager Paul Molitor said pitcher Aaron Thompson will only pitch in Monday's contest at Kansas City in an emergency situation, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

In 10 1/3 innings this season, Thompson has a 0.87 ERA.

The Twins are the underdogs (+143) against the Royals.


Santana suspended for PEDs; Pelfrey joins rotation, Thompson recalled


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Twins starting pitcher Ervin Santana has been suspended 80 games without pay after testing positive for Stanozolol, which is a performance-enhancing substance, Major League Baseball announced Friday. 

“We were disappointed to learn of the suspension of Ervin Santana for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," the Twins said in a statement Friday. "We fully support Major League Baseball’s policy and its efforts to eliminate performance enhancing substances from our game. Per the protocol outlined in the Joint Drug Program, the Minnesota Twins will not comment further on this matter.”

Santana's suspension comes a day after Braves pitcher Arodys Vizcaino was suspended 80 games for also testing positive for Stanozolol. 

The 32-year-old Santana is in his first year with the Twins after signing a four-year, $55 million contract in the offseason. He also has a $14 million team option for a fifth year.

Mike Pelfrey, who lost out on the competition for the fifth spot in the rotation, will avoid a bullpen assignment and take Santana's spot in the rotation. Reliever Aaron Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to take Santana's roster spot.

"I am very disappointed that I tested positive for a performance enhancing drug," Santana said in a statement. "I am frustrated that I can't pinpoint how the substance in question entered my body. I would never knowingly take anything illegal to enhance my performance. What I can guarantee is I never knowingly took anything illegal to enhance my performance. That's just not me, never has ben and never will."
