Santana will start Tuesday's wild-card game against the Yankees, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Twins' No. 1 hurler will take his talents to the Bronx with the hope of knocking off the Yankees to earn a berth in the American League Division Series against Cleveland. Santana posted a career-best 3.28 ERA and 16-8 record this year.

Santana pitched five scoreless innings with just four hits allowed and a single strikeout during Thursday's loss to Cleveland. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

With Santana already announced as the Minnesota starter for the wild-card game next Tuesday, this was just a tune-up for the veteran righty. He cruised through five frames, throwing just 57 pitches and facing limited trouble. It's been another solid campaign for Santana, as he'll finish the 2017 regular season with 16 wins, a 3.28 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 7.1 K/9. Those numbers moved the fantasy needle in all settings.

Santana will take the mound for Tuesday's wild-card game against the Yankees or the Red Sox, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

This should come as no surprise, as Santana has been Minnesota's ace throughout the season, tossing 206.1 innings over the course of 32 starts in 2017, prior to Thursday's outing against the Indians. During that time, he's accumulated a 3.36 ERA and 1.13 WHIP while recording five complete games and three shutouts. The right-hander just faced the Yankees, who he will likely face Tuesday, giving up two earned runs off seven hits and one walk while striking out three in 5.2 innings. He will de deployed on normal rest following Thursday's start, and would only be available to start one game in the ALDS, were the Twins to advance.

Santana is scheduled to start Thursday's game against the Indians, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

It had been previously reported that Santana would next take the mound Friday against the Tigers. However, he'll draw a less-favorable matchup as the Twins plan to deploy him Thursday against Cleveland. Over his last three starts, Santana has posted a 2.41 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over 18.2 innings.

Santana (16-8) allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out five over seven innings to earn the win Saturday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Santana was trailing 3-2 before the Twins erupted for eight runs in the top of the eighth inning to help him earn his 16th win of the season. He's allowed five earned runs over his last 18.2 innings covering three starts, and he's been a solid fantasy option down the stretch. He'll make his next start Friday against the Tigers.

Santana allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk across 5.2 innings while taking the loss Monday against the Yankees. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Santana pitched well for the most part, but a solo home run from Aaron Judge in the first inning and a sacrifice fly from Todd Frazier in the sixth sunk him to his eighth loss. He came within one out of his second straight quality start and ran his K:BB to a solid 15:4 in September. Santana continues to deliver solid outings for the contending Twins and will look to get back in the win column Saturday against the Tigers.

Santana threw six scoreless innings allowing three hits and one walk with seven strikeouts, but got a no-decision in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

It was his 19th quality start in 30 starts this season. He had struggled his last three starts with a 5.40 ERA (11 ER in 18.1 IP) and just a 5.9 K/9, so it was good to see him get back on track.

Santana (15-7) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts over five innings but still picked up the win Friday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The Royals got to Santana in consecutive starts, as Santana allowed four runs on eight hits over 6.2 innings to the Royals last time out on Monday. Somehow, Santana managed to come out 1-0 over those two starts, though. Everything has been coming up Ervin this season, as Santana now has his first 15 win campaign since he picked up 17 victories for the Angels all the way back in 2010.

Santana allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out just two batters through 6.2 innings during Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty posted a rock-solid 2.95 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 9.5 K/9 through six August starts, so this wasn't a great start to September. However, with the Twins in the playoff hunt, Santana is still in position to finish the season strong and post one of the best fantasy campaigns of his career. He projects to face the Royals at Kauffman Stadium in his next start.

Santana (14-7) beat the White Sox on Tuesday after allowing three runs on seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over 6.2 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Santana held Chicago off the board until the sixth inning, allowing his team to pile up an insurmountable lead in what ended as a 6-4 victory. The veteran righty has been a reliable option nearly every time out, notching quality starts in five of his past six tries. He'll have a great opportunity to add another one Sunday against the slumping Royals offense.
