Johan Santana Rumors


http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/

Time for your daily Johan Santana rumors post.

* LEN3 talked to a Twins official who said there had been no recent extension talks between Santana and the Twins. Meanwhile Sid Hartman at the same paper says the Mets and Yankees won't go seven years, and he think the Twins' 4/80 offer is fair.
* Neal says that while Santana won't necessarily veto any trade reached after Spring Training starts, it's in everyone's best interest to avoid dragging it that far.
* The Mets are still reluctant to part with Fernando Martinez, seemingly the dealbreaker right now. Aaron Heilman could enter the mix though.
* Neal believes the Yankee/Red Sox offers from December are still on the table. This has been my hunch as well. Which is why I think Boston can still pull this off.
* If no deal can be reached soon the Twins might have to sign a stopgap CF like Corey Patterson or Kenny Lofton.

I've never read a legit scouting report that said he hit 100 on a reliable gun.

Here's BA's top 30 of the CCL in 2006:

Quote:
Brackman is bigger (7 feet, 245 pounds) and throws much harder than Young. In his last outing with Orleans, his fastball sat at 93-95 mph and touched 98-99. His splitter has a chance to be a plus pitch, and he flashes a tight slider. He also repeats his delivery very well for such a tall pitcher.

Additionally in his interview with PP, he says he throws a 2 seamer up to 94-95, and a 4 seamer that has been clocked at 99.

Then he adds "I can't hit 100. I'm kind of pissed about that."
