Santos (elbow) elected free agency Monday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Santos struggled in 2015 while splitting time with the Dodgers and Yankees, pitching to a 4.96 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. The 32-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery in June, so wherever he ends up in free agency, Santos likely won't be available until the second half of the season at the earliest.

Santos (elbow) will be transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday.

Santos will undergo Tommy John surgery, so his transfer to the 60-day disabled list will open up a spot on the 40-man roster. The procedure will end his 2015 campaign, and will likely hold him out until at least the All-Star break in 2016.

Santos will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Santos hit the disabled list Friday with elbow inflammation, and it looks like the Yankees will have to deal with the worst-case scenario. The 31-year-old reliever will now likely be out until at least the 2016 All-Star Break. It's unclear what the future has in store for Santos, who will likely have to accept a low-risk, team-friendly deal before getting another shot in the majors.

Santos (elbow) was placed on the 15-day DL due to inflammation in his right elbow, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Santos signed with the Yankees less than two weeks ago after being DFA'd by the Dodgers, and he'll head to the DL after making only two appearances. It's unclear whether the issue is considered serious, but it's likely that the team is simply hoping to avoid the inflammation developing into something that could hamper the reliever long-term.

Santos has been called up by the Yankees before Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Santos pitched all of one inning for Double-A Trenton before getting the call from New York, so the Yankees likely knew what they were getting when he was brought into the organization. He won't receive any roles of fantasy value, likely just middle relief innings.

Santos has signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees, and he'll report to Double-A Trenton, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

The 31-year-old Santos had a 4.73 ERA and 15:7 K:BB ratio over 13.1 innings with the Dodgers this season, following a terrible 2014 campaign for the Blue Jays. He'll now try to work his way up the ladder into a middle-relief role with the Yankees.

Santos was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

The Dodgers needed to create a spot on the 40-man roster with their six-player trade with Atlanta getting approved, and Santos was the casualty. While Santos did fan 15 in his 13.1 innings with Los Angeles this season, he also walked seven and served almost exclusively in mop-up duty.

Santos was recalled by the Dodgers and is with the team for Friday's game in San Diego, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Santos has always been a big strikeout guy, and his numbers to start the year at Triple-A were impressive, striking out eight and giving up two earned runs in 4.2 innings. There is a chance that he could find his way into the mix for a save opportunity with Kenley Jansen (foot) out until mid May.

Santos is not expected to make the Dodgers' 25-man roster, the L.A. Times reports.

He can opt out of his contract by May 1 if he's not on the major league roster, so he'll spend the first month of the season at Triple-A Oklahoma City.
