When Royals righty Ervin Santana tweeted a YouTube video simply titled "Trade Rumors" on Tuesday, viewers were definitely in for a surprise ending.
After being asked questioned about potentially being a "trade target" by the media, Santana posted the video, where he literally is a target.
In the video, Santana is chatting with teammates Lorenzo Cain and Salvador Perez in the Royals' clubhouse, when all of a sudden, the trio quickly dodges an explosive blast fired in their direction. Certainly not what one would expect upon first checking out the video just based on the description.
Pretty clever and funny stuff from Santana. Nice to see that he can keep a good sense of humor even though his future in KC might be up in the air with the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline approaching.
The 30-year-old Santana is 6-6 with a 3.18 ERA and 104 strikeouts in 130 1/3 innings this season for the Royals.
