"He's feeling good," Gardenhire told Power Alley's Mike Ferrin and Jim Duquette."He's got an impingement, but he's doing some therapy in the pool, he told me yesterday he is feeling good."
Santana is currently on the 15-day disabled list and was placed on it on June 27 prior the Texas series. If ready, he will be eligible to come off on July 11 as the Twins are in Denver, just three games before the All-Star Break.
In his limited time, Santana has been an offensive catalyst for the team while learning a new position at the major league level. Among rookies with a minimum of 140 plate appearances, his .360 weighted on-base average ranks behind just Chicago's Jose Abreu and Houston's George Springer while his .366 OBP leads all rookies.

Until he's running on land, I'm not sure anyone can make predictions on a return date. Wasn't it when he touched a base that it really hurt him (not just 1st base on that last night but I think he said he had noticed it another time when he touched base)?
