De Los Santos Joins Beloit Roster

Estarlin De Los Santos

Beloit Snappers Press Release

The Beloit Snappers just got a little faster with the addition of infielder Estarlin De Los Santos. De Los Santos comes to Beloit after spending the first two months of the season in Minnesota's Extended Spring Training.

Last season, Estarlin batted .264 with 60 runs and 75 hits in 67 games for the Elizabethton Twins. De Los Santos also swiped 27 bases last year, good enough for third in the Appalachian League.

Known mostly for his glove work, Estarlin signed as a non-drafted free agent with the Twins on February 9, 2005.

Along with Estarlin's promotion, the Minnesota Twins placed Snappers' infielder Ramon Santana on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain. Santana is batting .283 with five home runs and 18 RBIs this season. Ramon also has a .358 on-base percentage to go along with his .453 slugging percentage.

The moves, effective today, leave the Beloit active roster at 25.
