Looking to shed salary in hopes of re-signing free-agent Zack Greinke, the Angels traded Santana in November to Kansas City for reliever Brandon Sisk. Santana had just completed a season in which he was 9-13, gave up an MLB-leading 39 home runs, and had a 5.16 ERA. The plan has not worked out for the Angels, as Greinke ended up signing with the Dodgers and Sisk has had season-ending surgery. Kansas City, meanwhile, is getting the best Santana has to offer. The 30-year-old's record is only 5-5, but his peripherals are impressive, as he has posted career bests in ERA (2.84) and WHIP (1.03) and is averaging more than seven strikeouts per nine innings.
