PASA: Santiago

This series, Pitchers and Stomach Aches, is based on my new feature on, Decade's Worst Individual Pitching Performaces, otherwise know as DWIPP.

Jose Santiago: In 2001, the Phillies traded Paul Byrd to the Kansas City Royals in exchange for reliever Jose Santiago. He pitched 62.1 innings and had an ERA of 3.61.

A year later, his ERA nearly doubled. In 2002, he had a 6.70 ERA and 1.51 WHIP. In 47 innings of work, he was 1-3 and batters hit .290 off the right hander.

At Veterans Stadium, Santiago had a 7.40 ERA. His road ERA was not much better at 5.96. He must of been afraid of the dark, because at night he had a 7.75 ERA.

In 12 innings in April, he gave up 12 earned runs. In 1.2 innings in July, he gave up 10 earned runs.

The Phillies released him after the season and he signed with Cleveland. With the Indians, he had a 2.84 ERA in 31.2 innings. He last pitched in 4 games with the New York Mets in 2005.
