No #MNTwins interest in FA Ervin Santana. Told Balt., Seattle, Dodgers, Cleveland, & the Yankees all have inquired in the last few days.According to Darren Wolfson on Twitter the Yankees are among a few teams to inquire about Ervin Santana recently. Per the tweet the Seattle Mariners, Baltimore Orioles, Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, and the Yankees are all interested in Santana's services, although the Minnesota Twins seem to not be involved at this time. Santana is said to be progressing towards a deal, finally, so this is exciting news for those who are in the camp who want Santana on the Yankees in 2014.

I don't think the Yankees would be willing to give up their second round pick for Santana to slot into the fifth starter role but odder things have happened. Santana gives up far too many fly balls or home runs and screams Phil Hughes to me, even in his best season, but he is better than anything we can throw at the wall currently for the fifth starter, on paper anyway.
Hopefully this comes to an end soon.
