Downside To Each Team’s Biggest Free Agent Signing: American League

Minnesota Twins: Ervin Santana
The Twins, who desperately need starting pitching help, put so much pressure on their bullpen every year because their starters can’t go deep into games and that is something that Santana has struggled with over the past few seasons.  It used to be easy for Santana to reach 200 innings per season but two of the past three years have seen him fall short of that number.  At 32-years old, it’s possible that age is catching up to him but Minnesota can’t afford five inning starts from anybody, especially somebody who just got a new multiyear contract.
