The injury occurred Friday while the left-hander was pitching for the Baltimore Orioles in extended spring training. Santana was struck by a line drive, then stumbled when chasing the ball.
Analysis: Orioles vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette says an examination determined a tendon tear. Duquette said of Santana: "He won't be able to pitch for the Orioles this season." The 35-year-old Santana has not pitched in the majors since 2012 with the New York Mets. Santana's return appeared on course when the Orioles purchased his contract from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday and placed him on the major league disabled list.
