Marshall @ MiLB:

Hector Santiago learned to throw a screwball just six months ago while pitching in the Puerto Rican Winter League. After Monday’s gem, other hurlers may soon be inquiring about a trip to the Caribbean in the offseason.Santiago allowed a lone hit — a sixth-inning single — and struck out a career-high nine batters over eight sparkling innings to lead the Double-A Birmingham Barons to a 4-1 victory over the visiting Chattanooga Lookouts.

Hector Santiago, 23 1/2 years old, was promoted to AA Birmingham after pitching 44.0 innings, 3.68 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 4.59 FIP, 43 K / 14 BB, .279 BABIP, in A+ Winston-Salem.
