Dodgers signed RHP Sergio Santos to a minor league contract.
Santos posted a 8.57 ERA and 2.19 WHIP in 26 relief appearances for the Blue Jays in 2014. Arm injuries have derailed what was once a promising career for the righty. In 2011, he saved 30 games with a 13.1 K/9 for the White Sox. The Dodgers have a packed bullpen and it would take a rash of injuries for Santos to pitch in the eighth or ninth inning again, but it's not inconceivable that he could get a chance to be a part of the major league bullpen if he puts up strong numbers in the minors.

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers are expected to sign Sergio Santos to a minor league contract.

Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reported earlier Monday that Santos was close to a deal with an unidentified National League West club. Santos posted an ugly 8.57 ERA and 2.19 WHIP in 26 relief appearances for the Blue Jays in 2014 while battling forearm issues. However, on a minor league deal he's worth a gamble.

Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports that reliever Sergio Santos is close to a deal with an NL West team.

It's expected to be a minor league deal with incentives built in. Santos posted an ugly 8.57 ERA and 2.19 WHIP in 26 relief appearances for the Blue Jays in 2014 while battling forearm issues.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 04:51:00 PM's Jon Morosi is reporting that the Rangers have had talks with reliever Sergio Santos.

The White Sox also expressed interest in Santos last month. Still, nothing is close to getting done yet, at least not according to reports. Santos is probably looking for some guaranteed money, while his suitors might merely be offering minor league contracts after his miserable 2014 season.

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the White Sox are interested in free agent Sergio Santos.

Santos had a miserable 2014, posting an 8.57 ERA and 2.19 WHIP in 26 relief appearances for the Blue Jays while battling forearm issues. The right-hander should come pretty cheap this winter. The White Sox used him as their closer back in 2011.

Blue Jays declined RHP Sergio Santos' $6 million option for 2015.

They will instead pay a buyout of $750,000. The hard-throwing 31-year-old hurler struggled through an injury-plagued 2014 campaign, posting an 8.57 ERA, 2.19 WHIP and 29/18 K/BB ratio over 21 innings of work. He's talented enough that he shouldn't have difficulty finding another opportunity elsewhere.

Blue Jays sent RHP Sergio Santos outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

The hard-throwing right-hander was designated for assignment earlier in the week, but passed through waivers unclaimed and will remain in the Jays organization.

Blue Jays designated RHP Sergio Santos for assignment.

It's the second time in the last two months that he's been designated for assignment. Santos gave up two homers and three runs while retiring just one batter Tuesday and holds an 8.57 ERA over 26 appearances for the Jays this season. The 31-year-old can elect free agency if he wants.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Sergio Santos from Triple-A Buffalo.

Santos was designated for assignment by the Jays on July 21 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 31-year-old right-hander seemed to figure something out on the farm, throwing 10 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out 16. He will pitch in middle relief.

Blue Jays sent RHP Sergio Santos outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Blue Jays designated RHP Sergio Santos for assignment.

Santos had posted a dreadful 7.78 ERA and 2.09 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this season out of the Blue Jays' bullpen. But the 31-year-old right-hander registered a 1.75 ERA and 0.58 WHIP in 25 2/3 frames last season and could draw interest from teams on the waiver wire.

Blue Jays activated RHP Sergio Santos from the 15-day disabled list.

No corresponding move has been announced yet, but it's possible that Brett Cecil will be heading to the disabled list. Santos should quickly work his way back into a setup role in front of closer Casey Janssen.

Sergio Santos (forearm) is scheduled to throw one final bullpen session on Sunday, and if all goes well he'll head to Florida for a minor league rehab assignment.

As long as he continues to progress, Santos should be able to rejoin the Blue Jays bullpen in mid-June. With the current state of the bullpen, as long as he pitches well in his return, he could quickly regain his role as the primary setup man in front of closer Casey Janssen.

Sergio Santos (forearm) felt great after throwing a 25-pitch bullpen session on Thursday morning.

Santos will throw another side session on Saturday and could then be cleared for a rehab assignment. He is on track to return to the Blue Jays' bullpen in mid-June. The right-hander has been out since May 11.
Thu, Jun 5, 2014 11:51:00 AM

Sergio Santos (forearm) hopes to throw two bullpen sessions this week.

Santos is hoping to throw on Friday and possibly again on Sunday before resuming his rehab assignment. The reliever had a setback with his forearm soreness last week but is evidently feeling better. He should return relatively soon as long as he can avoid further setbacks.
