Santos has a chance to start
(3/6/2008) MLB.com reports Giants SP Noah Lowry will undergo surgery Friday to relieve tendinitis in his left, pitching wrist. It is expected that he will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks. The official diagnosis of Lowry's injury is called exertional compartment syndrome. It is "an exercise-induced neuromuscular condition that causes pain, swelling and sometimes even disability in affected muscles of the legs or arms." Manager Bruce Bochy said the objective of the surgery is to reduce pressure from the tissue in Lowry's wrist. "It's not like this is a common occurrence in baseball players," Bochy said. Bochy added that Lowry might not pitch until the end of April, and it's expected that Kevin Correia and Jonathan Sanchez will fill in at the back-end of the rotation until Lowry is healthy. Patrick Misch and Victor Santos will also get a look.

Bailey to arrive in Week 10?!

No. 5 starter Bobby Livingston pitched well his last outing, but he cannot be recalled the next time the No. 5 spot is up Saturday -- without someone going on the DL. "So start checking your board to see who's rested next Saturday," Narron coyly told MLB.com. Eric Milton (elbow) is not close to coming off the DL, so there are three leading candidates. "(Victor) Santos, (Phil) Dumatrait and Homer Bailey," Narron told the official site. Santos is in long relief for the Reds, while Dumatrait has struggled recently in Triple-A.
Reds still mum on Friday's SP
(5/30/2007) Reds manager Jerry Narron was still mum on who will start Friday's game in Colorado. LHP Bobby Livingston was called up on Monday after RHP Kirk Saarloos was optioned to Triple-A Louisville. Narron said Livingston was the likely starter on Friday if he wasn't used out of the bullpen on Wednesday, which he was not. Another possibility was RHP Victor Santos, who's made 20 appearances out of the bullpen this season.
Livingston or Santos starts Fri.?
(5/29/2007) Bobby Livingston was recalled from Louisville on Monday for his second stint with the Reds -- his assignment ostensibly to pitch in long relief the next couple of days. Long reliever Victor Santos was unavailable Monday and probably won't be available Tuesday in Houston. He pitched 4 1/3 innings Sunday. Livingston, 0-3 with a 3.88 ERA in nine starts at Louisville, is expected to start Friday's game in Denver -- a vacant spot since Kirk Saarloos has been sent to Triple-A Louisville. "Long relief, that's all they told me," said Livingston. "Whatever they have for me is fine. They told me to be ready pitch in long relief and for now, until I hear something different, I'm in relief."
V. Santos off to nice start

Santos might start for Milton
(4/2/2007) Left-hander Eric Milton was placed on the 15-day DL (back spasms) after he was unable to make his last scheduled exhibition start Saturday in Dayton against the Marlins. Milton, who gave up five home runs in six innings last Monday against a Class A Pittsburgh team, was scheduled to face the Cubs Thursday in Great American Ball Park. His place most likely will be taken by surprise survivor RHP Victor Santos, a free agent signee who went the entire spring without giving up a run.
(4/2/2007) The Reds purchased Victor Santos from the minor leagues.
Many vie for last spot in Reds rotation
(3/11/2007) With four rotation spots under control -- Bronson Arroyo, Aaron Harang, Eric Milton, Kyle Lohse -- the search is on for a fifth starter, and so far, so good. There are several legitimate candidates: Kirk Saarloos, Paul Wilson, Bobby Livingston, Matt Belisle, Victor Santos, Phil Dumatrait and Elizardo Ramirez. Wilson, trying to come back on a minor league contract after batting injuries for two seasons, was the only one who was roughed up in the first two turns through the rotation. That makes manager Jerry Narron ecstatic, giving him choices and extra arms in case of in-season failures or injuries. "We hope every one of them does well every time out and makes our decision very, very tough," Narron said. "It beats the alternative of not having any legitimate candidates."

Santos gave up two runs and four hits in five innings. "I just wanted to go out there and keep the ball down and stay aggressive," said Santos, who had not won since June 9. "I kept us in the game and we got a 'W' out of it. You can't ask for anything else."
Victor Santos to start Monday

V. Santos starts Tuesday
(5/29/2006) Zach Duke (2-6, 4.36 ERA) will start a day earlier than planned when he takes the mound for Pittsburgh against Milwaukee Monday.

Duckworth, Santos still battling
(3/30/2006) Regardless of who wins the No. 2 spot for the Pirates between right-handers Brandon Duckworth (30) and Victor Santos (29), Pittsburgh pitchers still won't be long in the tooth. At this juncture, the Pirates will open the regular season Monday in Milwaukee with 24-year-old left-hander Oliver Perez on the mound. The third spot belongs to lefty Zach Duke (22) followed by right-hander Ian Snell (24) and lefty Paul Maholm (23).
Santos makes his pitch Saturday
(3/25/2006) Neither Brandon Duckworth nor Victor Santos pitched himself into the Pittsburgh Pirates' rotation Saturday.

Santos sliding in spring play
(3/15/2006) With the exhibition season reaching the midway point, there are still six candidates vying for two open spots in the starting rotation: left-handers Sean Burnett and Tom Gorzelanny and right-handers Brandon Duckworth, Victor Santos, Ian Snell and Ryan Vogelsong. Ironically, Santos and Vogelsong, considered the favorites to win the two jobs when spring training started, have struggled. Santos' ERA is 6.14 in 7 1/3 innings and Vogelsong's is 7.88 in eight innings.
(3/7/2006) Starter Victor Santos, one of six pitchers vying for two vacancies in Pittsburgh's rotation, was in trouble throughout his 2 1/3 innings Monday but allowed only one run. He gave up five hits, struck out one and walked one.
Santos' rotation chances improve
(2/26/2006) It appears expected No. 3 starter Kip Wells (blood clot) will miss a significant portion of 2006, if not all of it. Ian Snell, Tom Gorzelanny, Victor Santos and Ryan Vogelsong's chances of making the Pirates' rotation have improved greatly. Assuming Sean Burnett (shoulder) is not ready for the season, those four will be competing for two spots.
