Two-time Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana hasn’t pitched in the majors since August 17, 2012, but he still hasn’t given up on a comeback.
FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi has the news on Santana, who will be 37 years old in March:
It’s been one setback after another for Santana, who underwent surgery in April of 2013 for a re-tear of his shoulder capsule. The left-hander was on the comeback trail with the Orioles in 2014 before suffering a season-ending Achilles tear. He signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays this February after a brief stint in the Venezuelan Winter League, but he ended his comeback bid in June after a toe infection slowed his throwing program.
The odds are squarely against Santana and have been for quite some time, but it would be nice to see him go out on his own terms.
