WSC Birth Years: Sergio Santos

Card #57 - Sergio Santos

Born: July 4, 1983

Sergio started his career as a shortstop with some pop in his bat. Santos was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2002 and worked his way up the the AAA level. He then spent time with the Blue Jays, the Twins, the White Sox and the Giants, in their minor league organizations.

Fate stepped in when the White Sox finally convinced Sergio to embrace his strong throwing arm (which he used to win bar bets) and reinvent himself as a pitcher in 2009. Starting in A ball and stopping at every level of the White Sox minor league system, Santos was in a great position to open eyes in 2010 Spring Traning.

Breaking with the White Sox, after camp, Sergio tied a team record of 11 appearances to start his career without allowing a run.
