The Orioles today announced that they have selected the contract of LHP JOHAN SANTANA from Triple-A Norfolk and placed him on the 15-day disabled list (recovering from left shoulder surgery).

Santana, 35, was signed to a minor league contract on March 4. A two-time Cy Young Award winner (2004 and '06), four-time All-Star (2005-07 and '09) and a Gold Glove winner (2007), Santana is 139-78 with a 3.20 ERA (2025.2IP, 721ER) in 360 career games (284 starts) with the Twins and Mets since making his debut in 2000.

In five career playoff starts from 2003-06, Santana has posted a 2.93 ERA (27.2IP, 9ER). He has also made three scoreless All-Star Game appearances (3.0IP, H, 2BB, 3K; 2005-07). He is the second-winningest Venezuelan-born pitcher in baseball history behind Freddy Garcia (156) and 12 strikeouts shy of 2,000 for his career.

He will wear #57.
