Santana has surgery, will miss start of season 07 Feb 18

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins right-hander Ervin Santana will miss the start of the regular season after unexpected surgery on his right middle finger. The Twins say the 35-year-old right-hander will need 10 to 12 weeks of rehabilitation before he can pitch in a major league game. Santana experienced discomfort in the digit during a bullpen session last week. He was an All-Star in 2017.
