Santana has agreed to a four-year, $54 million contract with Minnesota, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The Twins needed starting pitching and Santana's 8.2 K/9 rate from last season will be a welcome addition to a staff that has lacked strikeouts. (However his career K/9 is just 7.2). He's also struggled by giving up more than a home run per nine innings in his career, so a move to homer unfriendly Target Field will help.
