Twins transferred INF Danny Santana from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for James Beresford on the 40-man roster. Santana was recently ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a Grade 2 sprain of his left shoulder.

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

Santana has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 left shoulder sprain following a Sunday collision with teammate Robbie Grossman. The bum wing won't require surgery, so the 25-year-old outfielder should be 100 percent by the beginning of spring training next February.

Danny Santana will not require surgery on his left shoulder.

Santana suffered a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder in a collision with teammate Robbie Grossman on Sunday. An exam on Monday confirmed the initial diagnosis. While surgery won't be needed, the clock is obviously ticking for him to make it back this year.

Twins placed INF/OF Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder.

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

Santana suffered the injury during a collision in the outfield with Robbie Grossman. The Twins should have more on his status after the game, but it's an injury that could sideline him for a while.

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.

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

Santana missed a little over two weeks with a strained hamstring. He went 4-for-11 during his three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester. Oswaldo Arcia was designated for assignment in the corresponding move.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
