SARASOTA, Fla. - Several questions remain as to when and how - or even if - two-time Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana will help the Orioles, but the club believes signing him is worth the chance and could end up paying dividends down the stretch. The Orioles finalized a minor league deal Tuesday with Santana, who will turn 35 next week. The lefty would earn $3 million if the major league club purchases his contract, and the deal includes incentives for days on the major league roster and games started.
