Ervin 'Magic' Santana Should Return for LA Soon

Findings at Lutheran Hospital in Cleveland have determined there is no structural damage to the knee of Angels hurler Ervin "Magic" Santana, merely broken blood vessels and severe bruising. Santana's knee was struck by a vicious liner back to the mound during Thursday's game with the Indians, causing him to go down in acute pain before being helped off the field. Santana will remain on the active roster and miss some activity for a few days. It's possible his spot in the rotation could be pushed back by 24-72 hours or so, depending on his recovery.
