Johan Santana could get another chance to revive his career with the Baltimore Orioles next season, as executive vice-president of baseball operations Dan Duquette told Roch Kubatko that the club is open to re-signing the left-hander who has had tons of injuries during the past few years.
Duquette also said, as I’ve heard previously, that re-signing Johan Santana is a possibility. #orioles will watch him throw when he’s ready

Santana signed a minor-league deal with the Orioles last offseason. He was determined to make his way back into the majors after having shoulder surgery that sat him for the entire 2013 season. He was just about to join the rotation when he suffered a torn Achilles during Spring Training.
Santana, a two-time Cy Young award winner, last pitched in the majors in 2012, when he fashioned a 4.85 ERA with a 1.3 WHIP over 21 starts for the New York Mets.
