    0

    LAKE BUENA VISTA: Dominican pitcher Ervin Santana signed a one-year Major League Baseball deal on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) with the Atlanta Braves, who appear set to lose starter Kris Medlen to a second tendon replacement surgery. The Braves turned to the 31-year-old Caribbean right-hander after Medlen was diagnosed with an injured right elbow ligament and faced with surgery on his throwing arm for the second time in four years. Atlanta’s Brandon Beachy went out Monday with tightness in his right biceps muscle and elbow, adding to the Braves’ starting rotation worries. Santana, whose deal is reportedly worth $14.1 million, went 9-10 last year with a 3.24 earned-run average and 161 strikeouts over 32 starts with Kansas City.
