2019 Fantasy Outlook
A brilliant first two months in the minor leagues earned Santana a promotion to Los Angeles. He posted K-BB rates of 23% and 26.7% at Double-A (38.2 innings) and Triple-A (11 innings), respectively, using his impressive fastball-slider-changeup mix to dominate competition that was more than two years older than him on average. Unfortunately, he only got one opportunity to show what he could do against major-league hitters. He hit the disabled list with a right rotator cuff strain days after his debut, and while surgery was deemed unnecessary, Santana remained shelved through the remainder of the season. Assuming he returns to full health, Santana will likely contribute a fair amount to the big-league team in 2019, though his role remains to be seen. His heavy sinking fastball would make Santana a valuable weapon in high-leverage spots, but the Dodgers probably don't want to throw in the towel on him starting just yet. Read Past Outlooks
Sent to minors

March 11, 2019
Santana was optioned to the minors on Monday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Santana allowed five runs in 3.2 innings in his first taste of the big leagues last season but was shut down for the season in mid-June shortly after his first appearance. He has just 11 innings under his belt at the Triple-A level, so he'll remain there until another opportunity opens up.
