Johan Santana Tears Achilles in Comeback Bid

Johan Santana Tears Achilles in Comeback Bid

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(BALTIMORE, Md.) — Johan Santana has gone from of the games more dominant pitchers, to one of baseball’s more tragic stories. After being struck by a line drive and stumbling to field the ball in extended spring training, it was revealed that Santana suffered a torn Achilles tendon.
The injury is the latest in a string of devastating blows over the past couple seasons. A two-time Cy Young winner, Santana signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles in March after undergoing his second shoulder surgery in as many years.
“The skills are there. He’s been able to rehab his arm, but now he’s got another challenge,” said Orioles vice president of baseball operations. “He was pitching well. The last time out he had his velocity and he was able to back-door his slider.  After (Friday), he was going to come up and join the major league team, and we were going to continue the rehab in (Double-A) Bowie.”
The 35-year-old had his contract purchased from Triple-A Norfolk and was placed on the major league disabled list on Monday. Santana has not pitched in the Majors since 2012 while with the New York Mets.

Orioles Bringing Along Johan Santana Slowly

Orioles Bringing Along Johan Santana Slowly

Eliot J. Schechter/MLB Photos(NEW YORK) — The Baltimore Orioles could use a boost in the starting pitching department, which is why they’re carefully bringing along former All-Star starting pitcher Johan Santana so he can help them during the stretch run.
Santana has been pitching in the minor leagues to get healthy and fine tune his game so he can get back to the Major Leagues. The team plans on having Santana join the team sometime in mid-June.
The team is hoping to start Santana at Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk in early-June. If all goes well, the team will call him up to the Majors.
“Ideally, the last outing would be six innings if the other club would cooperate,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “If these three options work out, he’d be an option for us. It’s one thing being able to get through it, it’s another thing to evaluate whether it will work up here.”
The 35-year-old Santana is working his way back from shoulder surgery. He has also dealt with various injuries since 2010.
Overall, he’s gone 139-78 with a 3.20 ERA during his 12-year career.
