    We have some people here who I really trust their background and their opinion with Johan." Johan Santana is hoping the Baltimore Orioles' patience with him pays off in another chance to pitch in the big leagues. He threw last week for seven teams and barely topped 80 mph. However, he's Johan Santana. Santana became the only Mets pitcher to throw a no-hitter with his 2012 gem against the St Louis Cardinals. TAMPA, Fla. The Orioles officially completed a Minor League deal Tuesday with free-agent pitcher Johan Santana, a low-risk move that could bolster the club in the second half if the two-time Cy Young Award winner can recapture his form. A team official confirmed that Santana was here, and a source said a minor league deal is almost completed. In 2012, he finished the season with a 8.27 ERA in his final 10 starts, but has been invited to play with the Orioles minor league team and attend Orioles spring training with the hopes of appearing on the mound in June, according to the report. His splits aren't that drastic, holding right-handed hitters to a .225/.281/.364 career line and lefties to .240/.293/.394. Even with the Nelson Cruz acquisition, can Delmon Young still make the Orioles' roster? "He can still make the club," Showalter said after Sunday's game, in which Young had two hits, including a double.
