Traded Santana calls 2012 season 'bad luck'

After being traded to the Kansas City Royals, former Los Angeles Angels right-handed pitcher Ervin Santana spoke to the Kansas City media about his disappointing 2012 season in Southern California.

The media inquired about what potential problems could have caused him to finish the season with a 5.16 ERA and his lowest strikeout total (133) since 2009.

""I don't have any physical problem, everything was good, I just had bad luck," said Santana.

Santana was part of a starting staff that failed to meet lofty expectations with the Halos. After signing C.J. Wilson and trading for Zack Greinke, they were thought to have one of the best starting rotations in baseball. But the team would not pan out the way they anticipated, and Angels pitchers had a collective 4.02 ERA in 2012, eighth in the American League.

Santana had spent his entire career with the Angels, who signed him as an amateur free agent in 2005.

Angels receive LHP Brandon Sisk from Royals

The Kansas City Royals didn't wait long to make a big move in the offseason, with the acquiring of right-handed pitcher Ervin Santana from the Los Angeles Angels and cash considerations for left-handed hurler Brandon Sisk.

Santana has spent his entire career with the Angels, compiling a 96-80 record with a 4.33 ERA in eight seasons. The 29-year-old Dominican Republic native struggled mightily last year, posting a 9-13 mark with an inflated ERA of 5.16.

The Royals picked up Santana's option for 2013, which is $13 million.

Sisk is a prospect who pitched in Triple-A last year in the Kansas City organization. He threw well in Omaha, having a respectable 2.54 ERA. The 27-year-old has been in the minor leagues for five years without making a major league appearance.

Many thought this would be a big offseason for the Royals, who have the lineup to compete with some of the better teams in the American League with stars such as Alex Gordon, Billy Butler, Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez on the team.
