Ervin Santana is now a free agent

After three lackluster starts, the White Sox designated for assignment pitcher Ervin Santana on Friday. Santana cleared waivers and refused an assignment to Triple-A Charlotte, electing to become a free agent, the club announced on Monday.

Nice to know that some of us can truly be free- it should interest the philosophers at least.

LEADING OFF: Red Sox get rings, Puig gets new nickname

A look at what’s happening around the majors today:

BOSTON BASH

The Red Sox are set to receive their 2018 World Series rings ahead of their home opener at Fenway Park. Boston plans to unveil a championship banner, and ceremonies will include a flyover by four F-16 jets prior to the first pitch. The club will sport gold-trimmed hats and jerseys, as well. One member of last year’s team who won’t attend is Craig Kimbrel. The All-Star closer and current free agent declined an invitation.

The 2019 season hasn’t been quite so sparkling. Boston returns from a season-opening West Coast swing 3-8, and the starting pitching has been especially suspect. Chris Sale (0-2, 8.00 ERA) faces Toronto in the home opener. His fastball has averaged 90.7 mph over his first two outings, down from 95.4 mph last season.

Just one story of several here, for your dining and dancing pleasure.

Will Ervin Santana join the White Sox starting rotation soon?

Will Ervin Santana be with the White Sox soon?

It’s seemed like just a matter of time — a matter of the schedule, to be exact — before the White Sox needed to summon the veteran right-hander from Arizona to join the major league rotation. His jersey was already hanging in the White Sox clubhouse Friday ahead of the team’s home opener.

Perhaps the call is coming very soon, with Hector Gomez reporting that Santana is getting brought up to join the big league roster.

The pitching games have already started this season, I see….
