Aside from Sergio Santos, the 11 through 20 is lacking quality. There were a few short MLB stints sprinkled in, but Santos was the only one with MLB pedigree in this portion. Santos was actually a SS when listed by BA but turned out to be a great pitcher. I’m not sure if he lacked the smooth delivery he may of needed to remain healthy long-term, but injuries slowed him down and halted what looked to be a pretty decent carer. A few stints as the closer and becoming a gem in the pen were the highlights of his career.

I’m not sure that we’ve heard the last of Santos as he pitched shortly for the Dodgers and Yankees in 2015, but with less than 75 IP through the last 3 seasons things are not looking good for his future. Yet, as a reliever it’s much easier to revive your career than it is as a starter.
