Shortly the Baseball Hall of Fame will be announcing who will be inducted into Cooperstown and former Pitcher Johan Santana is on the ballot. While it is uncertain as to whether Santana will receive the necessary votes to make the Hall (or even the 5% to make the next ballot due to the plethora of names who are eligible to vote for) he will be enshrined for sure into the Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame.

The Venezuelan arrived to Minnesota via trade from the Florida Marlins on a 1999 Rule 5 draft swap for Jared Camp. It is easy to see who won this deal isn’t it?   Santana made the Twins roster in 2000 and he bounced back and forth between long relief and spot starting but in 2003 he began to put it altogether and won a permanent spot in the rotation becoming one of the better hurlers in the last half of the season and he helped the team make the playoffs that year.

Johan Santana had arrived and in 2004 and he would begin a four year run as the most dominating pitcher in the American League. The flamethrower would go 20-6 while leading the AL in ERA, Strikeouts, FIP, WHIP and SO/BB and would win the CY Young Award. 2005 would not be a Cy Young winning one, but he was 3rd in voting and finished first in Strikeouts, FIP, WHIP and SO/BB. He would again reclaim the Cy Young in 2006 while again taking the ERA, Strikeouts, FIP, WHIP and SO/BB Title. This would also see Santana finish first in Wins for the first and only time in his career. 2007 was a “down” year where he only finished 5th in Cy Young voting.

Santana was traded to the New York Mets in the off-season.

Johan Santana’s overall numbers with Minnesota are 93 Wins against 44 Losses with 1,381 Strikeouts with a 3.22 Earned Run Average.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Johan Santana on earning this prestigious honor.
