Veteran starter Ervin Santana was called up by the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday will make his season debut against the Tampa Bay Rays. The 36-year-old right-hander will square off against the Rays' Charlie Morton in Chicago on Tuesday afternoon. Santana signed with the White Sox as a minor league free agent on Feb. 23 and was assigned to Triple-A Charlotte. An injured right middle finger limited Santana to five starts for Minnesota last year, a one-month season that was book-ended by long stints on the injured list. The Twins shelved him for the rest of the season on Aug. 19 and he finished 0-1 with an 8.03 ERA. Santana is 149-125 over 14 seasons with four different teams. He spent his first eight seasons with the Los Angeles Angels. The two-time All-Star has a career 4.06 ERA and 1,921 strikeouts. --Field Level Media
