Danny Santana was hitless over four at-bats in Monday's loss in Arizona.
Santana continues to struggle at the plate, posting just two hits over the past 19 at-bats dating back to July 2. He spent time on the 10-day disabled list due to a bacterial infection earlier in the month, and he might be still building up his strength. However, he wasn't hitting all that well before the illness. Jul 25 - 1:27 AM

Danny Santana (shoulder) will miss the rest of the 2016 season.

Danny Santana will not require surgery on his left shoulder.

Danny Santana exited Sunday's game against the Blue Jays with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder.

Danny Santana went 0-for-4 on Thursday and is 1-for-18 over the Twins' last five games.

Yes, the Twins' last five games. He's started them all, for some bizarre reason. Santana is hitting .240 with 14 extra-base hits and 12 walks in 229 at-bats, yet he's an everyday player at the moment, mostly starting in the outfield corners. Before he played center today, each of his previous 12 starts had been in left or right.
