Ervin Santana rumors: Contract demands for Santana revealed in latest rumors

Ervin Santana rumors address his latest contract demands. These new Santana rumors confirm that the asking price of the free agent starting pitcher hasn't lowered. According to a report from CBS Sports on Tuesday (Feb. 25), he still hopes to garner an offer of $50 million over the next four seasons. That's basically the same market range for Matt Garza and Ubaldo Jimenez, even though there doesn't appear to be an active offer out there at the moment.

Fantasy Baseball Secret Weapon

After posting a 3.24 ERA last season, he is still really trying to cash in on what some fans state was a career year for him. He has pitched nine seasons in Major League Baseball and it was only the fourth season where his ERA was actually below 4.28. He has made 265 starts in that time, posting a combined ERA of 4.19 to go along with 1,328 strikeouts over 1,686 2/3 innings. They aren't exactly numbers that will blow anyone away, but he is still the best pitcher available in free agency.

Despite no active offer and his asking price not dipping, the latest Ervin Santana rumors still indicate that four teams are looking at signing him. Those teams are the Baltimore Orioles, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, and Colorado Rockies. Each team needs another starting pitcher to some degree, but it is very unclear which franchise would be desperate enough to offer a $50 million, four-year contract. It is very likely that the first one to meet those demands will gain his services though.
