Free agent pitcher Ervin Santana has lowered his asking price to a one-year deal according to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.
Santana, 31, could up his asking price if he were to wait until the season started as he would no longer be tied to draft pick compensation. However, it looks like he would rather just get his season started and find a place to pitch. He recently got rid of his agent and is now said to be representing himself.
