Twins starter Ervin Santana pitches against the Royals on Aug. 5 in Minneapolis. The White Sox reportedly have agreed to a minor league contract with the veteran right-hander.

PHOENIX – The White Sox’s starting rotation was pretty much set heading into training camp.

Reynaldo Lopez, Carlos Rodon, newcomer Ivan Nova and Lucas Giolito occupy the first four spots – the order has not yet been set – and Dylan Covey and Manny Banuelos came in as the most likely candidates for the No. 5 starter job.

You can now add Ervin Santana to the mix.

According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, Santana is joining the Sox on a minor league contract, pending a physical. The 36-year-old righty will make $4.3 million if he breaks camp on the 25-man roster.

A 14-year veteran, Santana is a career 149-125 with a 4.06 ERA. He’s pitched for the Angels, Royals, Braves and Twins.

Before the 2015 season, Santana signed a four-year, $55 million contract with Minnesota. He was 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA in 2017, finishing seventh in Cy Young Award voting.

Last year, Santana was limited to five starts by an injury to his right middle finger. He was 0-1 with an 8.03 ERA.

Signing day: The Sox agreed to terms with 27 players Friday, including Lopez and Yoan Moncada. All players on the 40-man roster are now under contract.
