Padres released RHP Fautino De Los Santos.

De Los Santos was designated for assignment by the Padres over the weekend. The 27-year-old made two appearances with Triple-A Tucson this season prior to being placed on the disabled list. He has shown some ability in the past, so assuming he's healthy, it shouldn't be too long before he finds a new opportunity.

Padres designated RHP Fautino De Los Santos for assignment.

It's just a procedural move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Burch Smith. De Los Santos has a 3.86 ERA in two games with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate this season.

Padres optioned RHP Fautino De Los Santos to Triple-A Tucson.

Claimed off waivers from the Brewers last month, De Los Santos allowed three runs in four innings this spring. He's flashed promise in the past but is coming off a poor season at Triple-A.

Padres claimed RHP Fautino De Los Santos off waivers from the Brewers.

De Los Santos was acquired from the A's in the George Kottaras deal last July, but now he's on the move again. While the soon-to-be 27-year-old had a 5.80 ERA at the Triple-A level last season, he throws hard and has averaged 11.5 K/9 in the minors. He could still turn into a useful reliever in the long-term.

Brewers recalled RHP Fautino De Los Santos from Triple-A Nashville.

Acquired from the A's in the George Kottaras deal, De Los Santos struggled at Triple-A this year, posting a 5.80 ERA over 39 games. But, he also struck out well over a batter per inning and has a shot to be an impact arm in the Brewers' pen at some point.

Brewers acquired RHP Fautino De Los Santos from the Athletics in exchange for C George Kottaras.

De Los Santos has spent most of this season at Triple-A Sacramento, where he's posted a 7.25 ERA over 28 appearances. But, the hard-throwing 26-year-old had been viewed as the team's closer of the future and still has plenty of potential. He's been assigned to Triple-A Nashville.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Brewers will receive Fautino De Los Santos in the George Kottaras trade.

He's a good get for general manager Doug Melvin. De Los Santos has spent most of this season at Triple-A Sacramento, where he's posted a 7.25 ERA over 28 appearances. But, the hard-throwing 26-year-old boasts an 11.4 K/9 rate in his 40 career appearances at the big league level, and many felt coming into the year that he was the A's closer of the future. The deal should officially be announced later Sunday.

Athletics optioned RHP Fautino De Los Santos to Triple-A Sacramento.

While De Los Santos has a 3.00 ERA and 3/3 K/BB ratio over three innings this season, he hasn't recorded an out in each of his last three appearances. The 26-year-old right-hander still has the potential to be a future closer for Oakland, but he'll continue to hone his craft in the minors.
Wed, Apr 25, 2012 12:51:00 PM

Fautino De Los Santos has not allowed a run in five relief appearances this season for the A's.

De Los Santos has surrendered four hits and walked three in just three innings, but those jams haven't cost him. The 26-year-old right-hander could join the ninth-inning mix later this summer if Grant Balfour is traded.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated to reporters Monday that Fautino De Los Santos is not being considered for the team's ninth-inning opening.

"He’s a guy that has the ceiling to close at some point," said Melvin. "I don’t know that it’s now." Brian Fuentes and Grant Balfour are currently considered the front-runners for the job. De Los Santos, 26, registered a sparkling 11.6 K/9 in 33 1/3 innings last season as a rookie.
Mon, Mar 12, 2012 04:01:00 PM

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that Fautino De Los Santos "is a possible successor" to Andrew Bailey if the Athletics wind up trading their closer.

De Los Santos, 25, has just 34 games of big league experience under his belt, and he's posted a pedestrian 4.32 ERA in those appearances. But, he also boasts an 11.6 K/9 rate over that time, which is just a tick below the 11.7 K/9 rate he's posted in his minor league career. However, with Grant Balfour and Brian Fuentes on the roster, it seems likely that De Los Santos is viewed more as the long-term closer rather than someone that would get the job in 2012 if Bailey is dealt.

Athletics recalled RHP Fautino De Los Santos from Triple-A Sacramento.

De Los Santos allowed one run over 2 1/3 innings in a brief stint with the big club last month. The 25-year-old right-hander has averaged 11.2 K/9 over 23 relief appearances between Double-A Midland and Triple-A Sacramento this season. Look for him in middle relief.

Athletics optioned RHP Fautino De Los Santos to Triple-A Sacramento.

He was cleared to make room for Adam Rosales and Scott Sizemore on the active roster. De Los Santos, who was called up from the minors Friday, allowed one run over 2 1/3 innings in two appearance during his brief stay with the big club.

Athletics recalled RHP Fautino De Los Santos from Triple-A Sacramento.

He'll take Grant Balfour's place in the A's bullpen while he's away on paternity leave. De Los Santos did not make an appearance during an earlier call-up this season, and isn't terribly likely to do so against the Red Sox this weekend.
