Analysis: Santiago made it out of the sixth inning in just four of his 12 career starts after coming over last season in a trade from the Los Angeles Angels. Santiago's spring was a bit truncated while pitching for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic. He pitched 8 2/3 innings over three weeks with Puerto Rico.
