Johan Santana’s agent says the two-time Cy Young Award winner should be able to pitch again in the Venezuelan Winter League. Santana retired six straight batters on Jan. 13 for the Magallanes Navigators in his first outing since tearing his left Achilles tendon last June 6 while pitching in extended spring training with the Baltimore Orioles. ”Results of (an) MRI show no structural damage – just shoulder fatigue,” agent Peter Greenberg said Thursday in an email to The Associated Press.

Though he hadn’t appeared in a major or minor league game since 2011, veteran reliever Arthur Rhodes quietly held on to a remarkable career that spanned 20 big league seasons. According to MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon, that changed on Friday as the now 45-year-old left-hander just as quietly made his retirement from baseball official. Arthur Rhodes, 45, hasn’t pitched in big leagues since 2011. But I heard that he officially retired today. Was All-Star for #reds in 2010. — Mark Sheldon (@m_sheldon) January 17, 2015 Like most pitchers who hang around through two decades, Rhodes was well-traveled. After debuting with the Baltimore Orioles in 1991 and spending his first nine big league seasons there, he changed uniforms nine times in 11 seasons, including stints with the Seattle Mariners (twice), Oakland A’s, Cleveland Indians, Philadelphia Phillies, Florida Marlins, Cincinnati Reds, Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals. It wasn’t because he wasn’t good. For his career, Rhodes went 87-70 with a 4.08 ERA over exactly 900 appearances (61 starts and 839 relief appearances) and 1,187.2 innings. It’s just the life of a reliever, and Rhodes was one that teams coveted because they knew he could get big outs in big situations. Case in point, Rhodes posted 25 scoreless relief appearances out of 29 in the postseason. That includes a perfect 8-for-8 scoreless in his final season for the World Series champion Cardinals. Excellent credentials to be sure, but it’s Rhodes durability and longevity that were most impressive. They also helped propel into some rare company on more than one occasion. Check out these facts. • Rhodes is one of only 24 pitchers to record 900 appearances in MLB history. • Of those 24, Rhodes is one of only six left-handers. Side-arming lefty Jesse Orosco holds the record with 1.252 appearances.
