Twins' Santana sticking around for playoff push

CHICAGO -- The Minnesota Twins are playing well enough to make Ervin Santana untouchable.

There was recent interest in the Twins right-hander, notably from the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros for help in their playoff drives.

However, a recent strong run by the Twins and by the 34-year-old veteran has Minnesota thinking that Santana should stay put for the stretch run in pursuit of an American League wild-card spot.
