Rangers' Dennis Santana: Allows unearned run

Santana allowed an unearned run on one walk over one inning during Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Royals. The run may have been unearned, but the blame falls directly on Santana, whose throwing error and wild pitch allowed Whit Merrifield to reach third base with none out. The reliever has been effective for the Rangers with just one earned run allowed over eight innings (1.13 ERA, 0.62 WHIP) and five holds. Working against those results are his BABIP (.125), FIP (3.37) and xERA (2.83), which indicate a correction is coming.

Rangers' Dennis Santana: Earns second hold

Santana allowed one hit over a scoreless relief inning in Monday's 6-4 extra-inning loss to the Rockies. Santana made his third appearance in four games, coming into the sixth inning after Albert Abreu plunked Randal Grichuk to start the inning.
