Danny Santana (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment Monday.

Santana is in the midst of his second disabled list stint due to a strained left hamstring, but obviously he's feeling much better. He should be activated later this week if all goes well.
Jun 12 - 11:37 AM

Danny Santana (hamstring) ran at about 70 percent effort Tuesday.

A nice first step for Santana, who has been on the disabled list since May 30 because of a left hamstring strain. He should be ready at some point in mid-June.
Jun 7 - 7:44 PM

Twins placed INF/OF Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Santana injured his left hamstring during Monday's game and will require an extended absence. The Twins will call up Byron Buxton to take his place on the active roster.
May 30 - 7:03 PM

Danny Santana exited Monday's game against the Athletics in the seventh inning with a left hamstring strain.

Santana, who missed time with a right hamstring strain earlier this season, hurt his left hamstring while running to second base on a sacrifice bunt. It will be interesting to see if the Twins call up Byron Buxton if the injury requires a trip to the disabled list. Stay tuned.
May 30 - 6:26 PM

Danny Santana went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases and a run scored Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Santana twice took advantage of the Marco Estrada-Russell Martin battery for his eighth and ninth steals of the season. He's the owner of a pedestrian .253/.266/.330 line, but Santana's speed could be an asset at the top of a Twins lineup that had scored the fifth-fewest runs per game heading into Thursday's contest. Santana batted ninth on Thursday.
May 20 - 1:00 AM

Danny Santana went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Indians.

Santana's run-scoring single in the ninth inning stretched the Twins' lead, his fifth RBI of the season. He also doubled in the contest. The outfielder is finding his way into the lineup with some frequency, posting a .260/.280/.356 with seven steals in 20 games.
May 14 - 8:04 PM

Danny Santana went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Leading off the game, Santana took Astros starter Collin McHugh deep to get the Twins on the board. It also got him on the board, as the homer was his first in 12 games this season. It was also his first since his breakout 2014 season. A hamstring injury sidelined him early, but the 25-year-old is batting .283/.298/.391 with the homer and four steals and may once again be a cheap source of speed if he continues to find his way into the lineup regularly.
May 4 - 12:39 AM

Danny Santana went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Santana got the start in center field and batted leadoff. It wasn't all good -- he was caught stealing in the ninth inning of a tie game, but was bailed out by his teammates -- but it's hard to complain too much after he missed the past two weeks with a strained right hamstring. With Byron Buxton at Triple-A, Santana should see more starts in center, and possibly more atop the lineup as well, in the weeks ahead.
Apr 26 - 11:15 PM

Twins activated OF Danny Santana from the 15-day disabled list.

Santana missed two weeks with a strained right hamstring. He will return Monday to a semi-regular role in the Minnesota outfield with Byron Buxton getting sent to Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding roster move. Santana has some fantasy appeal as a base-stealer, but we wouldn't expect much consistency in any statistical department from the 25-year-old.
Apr 25 - 3:25 PM

Danny Santana (hamstring) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Fort Myers on Wednesday.

Santana is eligible to return next Monday and could be ready by then. The 25-year-old went down with a strained right hamstring in the first week of the season.
Apr 18 - 7:58 PM

Danny Santana (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment by the middle of the week.

Santana was injured in the first week of the season but has made a quick recovery. He's eligible to be activated next Monday and could be ready at that time.
Apr 17 - 11:47 AM

The Twins think Danny Santana (hamstring) could need only a minimum stint on the disabled list.

Santana was placed on the DL Saturday with a strained right hamstring, but apparently the injury is minor. He could be back before the end of the month if all goes well.
Apr 10 - 2:00 PM

Twins placed OF Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

Max Kepler will be called up from Triple-A Rochester in the corresponding roster move. Santana was running down a fly ball when he hurt his hamstring Saturday against Kansas City. Oswaldo Arcia should function as the Twins' fourth outfielder during his absence.
Apr 9 - 11:12 PM

Danny Santana left Saturday's game against the Royals with a right hamstring strain.

He pulled up while trying to make a play on Salvador Perez's double in the sixth inning. Byron Buxton replaced him in center field. Santana was hitless in three at-bats before exiting. Hopefully Santana can avoid a DL stint, though he didn't look good coming off the field.
