Transaction Report - 2/14/09

Los Angeles Angels: Agreed to terms with pitcher Ervin Santana on a four-year contract. Santana is the youngest pitcher in the majors with at least 50 wins. He's 26 and coming off a 16-7 season with a 3.49 ERA. The deal is for four years and $30 million and keeps the Angels and Santana out of arbitration.

New York Mets: Signed pitcher Livan Hernandez to a minor league contract. A minor-league deal for the veteran whose ERA in 2008 was 6.05, and who gave up 257 hits in 180 innings. As long as the Mets are signing pitchers just for laughs, they should go get Orlando Hernandez, too.
