About Ervin Santana Autographed Memorabilia & Collectibles
Born on January 10, 1983 in La Romana, Dominican Republic, Ervin Santana
is a right-handed starting pitcher of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
He became the starting pitcher for the Angels’ double-A affiliate, the Arkansas Travelers. It is where Santana posted an amazing 5-1 record and 2.31 ERA all in 15 starts. He was promoted when Kelvim Escobar was injured. It was on May 17, 2005 when he made his first
Major League appearance. He was unfortunately crushed by the Cleveland Indians in a game which he gave up the pitching version the real cycle which was single, double, triple, and a home run in his first inning. He was sent back to the minors but he received a promotion from his Travelers days earlier in the season since he was sent to the Angels Triple-A affiliate, the Salt Lake Bees.
When Escobar was suffering elbow problems, Santana got his second call up to the majors. He had showed a different performance and pitched graciously enough to earn a spot on the playoff roster but then was initially left out of the four-man rotation. Santana’s first rookie season with the Angels ended with 12 wins during the regular season which leads to the speculation that he could be a potential 20-gamer winner in the 2006 season. He was nicknamed “El Meneo” which means “the Shaker.” He was named such due to the way his tall slender body sways every time he walks.
