Re: Ervin Santana Optioned To AAA
I'm just not high on the guy. He's a FB pitcher with marginal make 'em miss ability and suspect command. His ERA has largely outperformed his peripherals most likely due to environment (look at his home/road splits).
IMHO, basically his whole worth is derived from the fact that he has the potential to be a cheap innings eater during his control years.
He's been one arm that I think has been terribly overrated by the mainstream media.
