Twins-Royals Preview

(AP) - The surprising Minnesota Twins, who are in second place in the AL Central, have added a front-line starter for the second half of the season.

Right-hander Ervin Santana has been reinstated after an 80-game drug suspension and is scheduled to start Sunday against the Kansas City Royals and try to give Minnesota a split of its 10-game road swing.

"It's a little different than making a trade, I think," manager Paul Molitor said Saturday. "Obviously, you're adding a good player to a club that you didn't have previous. We all knew this one was coming. It was just a matter of riding out the storm.
