Texas designated De Los Santos for assignment last weekend in the midst of the bevy of moves they made surrounding September roster transactions, including the call up of Jurickson Profar and the recalls of Martin Perez and Leonys Martin.
The 24-year-old De Los Santos spent his 2012 season with the Rangers’ Double-A affiliate, maintaining an ERA and WHIP of 5.22 and 1.500 over twenty-six appearances, including four starts. Over fifty-eight and two-thirds innings of work, he posted 10.7 SO/9 and 5.2 BB/9.
De Los Santos began his professional career with the Rangers playing for the club’s Dominican Summer League team in 2006. After logging twenty-two appearances as a reliever in the DSL during his 2009 campaign, the southpaw started thirty-two of the thirty-nine appearances he made during the 2010-11 seasons.
Over Del Los Santos’ seven seasons in the minors, he’s maintained an ERA of 3.87 with 13.6 SO/9 and 4.9 BB/9.
