Dodgers: Minor League Players of the Week- Week Two
It is hard to select a starting pitcher for this spot because sometimes that player only makes one appearance in a week where some position players play every day. But, in the case of 22-year old righty, Dennis Santana, there was no denying his incredible appearance for Double-A Tulsa.
Santana has been in the spotlight for Dodger pitching for a year or so now and finds himself as Pipelines number 10 prospect in the Dodgers’ organization.
Sited for his abilities to use both a 95 mile per hour sinker and a devastating slider, Dennis Santana is known as a strikeout pitcher and it was strikeouts that got him to this spot in week two of the minor league season.
On Monday, April 16, Santana made his second start of the year in which pitched just 4.1 innings. But, do not let this length of the outing fool you as he allowed just one hit, walked none, and struck out 10 batters. A pitch cap on the night ended what was a stellar outing and if he can continue that success a promotion to Triple-A should not be far off.
