A nine-year veteran, Santana already had received one-year offers from the Baltimore Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays, along with a three-year offer from the Minnesota Twins, the source confirmed to Rojas. On top of that, Mike Minor is behind schedule this spring due to shoulder soreness that is being blamed on his inactivity following surgery on his urethra in December, and offseason signing Gavin Floyd isn’t expected back from his own Tommy John rehabilitation until May.
