Default Hector Santiago Signs with Sox - Confirmed

Will sign with the Sox, pending a physical.

Hope he can bounce back and be a nice trade chip in July.

A quick googling shows no news outlets reporting this. Where did you get your info from?

I found nothing on this either.

If true, I really like this as a flip piece if Coop can re-boot him.

This is great news if true. Gives us needed SP depth and he also has proven to be valuable in the pen as well, with closing experience. Waiting on a source...

Found nothing on Google, either. However, Google did suggest Hector Salamanca. Salamanca is not available, however.......

Solid signing.

Would love the Sox going with a 6 man rotation all season. It's possibly a meaningless season with many young arms. No need to put that 200 inning stress this early.

Shields
Giollito
Lopez
Fulmer
Santiago
Gonzalez


As veterans (Shields, Santiago, Gonzalez) start moving out, plug in Rodon and Kopech down the line.

MLB news as well

Not a bad signing. He hasn't been good recently. But he is worth a shot for the Sox. Maybe our coaches can help him re-find effectiveness.

Man, Hahn has signed so many flippable reclamation project arms this offseason. I love it. Even if only a few (let's say Hector, Gomez and Soria) end up being worth something at the deadline, it's a win. This really and truly is a rebuild being done right. Cap it off with a strong draft this summer and a Machado signing in the offseason and we're in business, baby.

I hope that Santiago can develop into what Derek Holland wasn't last season for the Sox. A veteran lefty who comes in, pitches well and allows Hahn to flip him for something worthwhile during the summer.

I like this move. Well done, Mr. Hahn.

Holland was solid for 6 weeks to start, then just fell apart. Let's hope some of these guys make it to the trade deadline with a pulse to have some sort of trade value.

With so many pitchers fighting for spots, I am worried they won't get enough innings to be evaluated properly. Watch Covey or someone throw 6 good innings and win a job.
