Left-handed starter Johan Santana will be making a decision on his next team soon, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports in his Sunday notes. Cafardo notes that many have speculated that he could have a reunion with the Twins because they train in Fort Myers, Florida, where Santana currently resides. It was later reported that Santana's deal will likely be a minor league deal, but it is unknown whether he would get an invite to Major League Spring Training.
Santana, 35 in 2014, is still trying to prove that he is a solid starter at the professional level. Since Santana's 134-pitch no-hitter in 2012, he has never looked like the same pitcher that has four All Star appearances and two no-hitters. Another anterior capsule (shoulder) surgery since, and Santana is trying to come back and pitch in the MLB. Over his career, Santana has a 3.20 ERA and a 1.132 WHIP over twelve big league seasons.
