SANTANA SENT TO TEXAS
The Texas Rangers acquired pitcher Dennis Santana from the Los Angeles Dodgers for pitcher Kelvin Bautista.
What does it give the Texas Rangers
In Santana, the Rangers land a decent right-handed reliever who struggled this season in Los Angeles. A change of scenery should serve him well in 2021.
What does it give the Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers recently designated Santana for assignment, so they did well to add Bautista in this deal. The latter turns 22 next month. He has upside.
There is no impact here, as Santana will provide organizational depth in the Texas bullpen. Bautista has some long-range upside as a reliever, but for now he is off the fantasy radar.
