The Giants are meeting with Ervin Santana

13 Comments

They fell out of the Jon Lester Derby yesterday, but they can still put their money down in the Ervin Santana Stakes:

Santana was linked with the Twins earlier today. And, as Aaron noted then, he would cost the Giants — or almost any other team — a first round draft pick to sign by virtue of his rejection of a qualifying offer from the Braves.

He posted 3.95 ERA and 179/63 K/BB ratio in 196 innings last season.
