Ervin Santana Signing Amid Big 2017 Season (Video)

Here is original video of Twins ace pitcher Ervin Santana signing autographs. This event took place Thursday night, at a Twin Cities Dave & Busters and was organized by Crave Sports Company.

Santana, who played the first eight years of his career with the Angels, is now in his thirteenth MLB season. To this point, the Dominican Republic native has amassed 140 career victories, including winning 16 or more games during three separate seasons. Thus far in 2017, Santana owns a 7-2 record, with a stifling 1.80 ERA and 0.83 WHIP, for the surprising first place Twins, who enter Friday with a 25-18 mark.

Santana's early season dominance is without question one of the main reasons why the Twins are in first place, instead of at the bottom of the division, a spot they have found themselves in during four of the last six seasons.
