Santana was designated for assignment Thursday.

Santan was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

In order to make room for Santana on the 40-man roster, Jose Ramirez was transferred to the 60-day DL (shoulder) and Mike Soroka was placed on the 10-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation. Santana has spent the entirety of the 2018 campaign at the Triple-A level, hitting .279 with a .839 OPS. In addition he's recorded 11 home runs, 28 RBI and eight stolen bases. He will serve as extra depth in the Braves' outfield.

Santana was reassigned to minor-league camp and will begin the season with Triple-A Gwinnett.

EDGE Analysis

Santana failed to crack the Opening Day roster even though Johan Camargo (back/oblique) will be forced to start the season on the disabled list. It appears as though Ryan Flaherty and Lane Adams will pin down the final couple roster spots. During the 2017 campaign split between Minnesota and Atlanta, Santana hit .202/.243/.357 with four home runs, 23 RBI and seven stolen bases.

Santana is likely to make the Braves' Opening Day roster if Johan Camargo (back/oblique) is not ready to go in time, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Santana has played every position except first base and catcher in his four-year major-league career and could fill a utility role for the Braves this season. He has a bit of speed (47 steals in 349 career games) but a weak bat (.258/.292/.378 for his career) which makes his fantasy appeal limited.

Santana went 4-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was his first of the spring, and Santana is now hitting .476 (10-for-21) to begin the spring. Whether the 27-year-old can win a spot on the Braves' 25-man roster could depend more on the team's plans for Ronald Acuna rather than anything Santana does on the field, however.

Santana (quadriceps) will play left field and bat seventh for the club's Grapefruit League opener against the Mets on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Santana appears to be at full health heading into Atlanta's spring games after missing the last month and a half of the 2017 campaign with a left quadriceps strain. He will be competing for a spot in the outfield following a disappointing campaign split between Minnesota and Atlanta last season.

Santana (quadriceps) agreed to a minor-league deal with the Braves on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

Santana will return to the Braves' organization, where he spent the majority of his 2017 campaign following the trade from Minnesota. The Braves opted to non-tender the utility man after he battled injury and limped to a 52 wRC+ in 69 games played this past season. The 27-year-old is coming off a season-ending quad injury but is expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 campaign.

The Braves declined to tender Santana (quadriceps) a contract for 2018, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Santana flashed a bit of promise with the Twins a few years ago, but he's been unable to follow up in subsequent seasons. A poor batting eye has held him back (4.0 percent walk rate, 23.1 percent strikeout rate for career), but Santana has some speed and could land a bench role out of spring training, if healthy.

Santana (quadriceps) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Santana spent the last month and a half of the 2017 season on the shelf with a quad injury, although he didn't make much of an impact when he was on the field, slashing just .202/.243/.357 in 82 games between Atlanta and Minnesota. Looking ahead, he should be at full health and ready for spring training.
