BALTIMORE: Carlos Santana’s sore right side kept him out of action for the second night in a row Friday.
“It’s better, but I still feel it a little,” Santana said Friday. “They put ice on it, and today I rode the bike, but they didn’t tell me when I can come back.”
Manager Manny Acta doesn’t want to rush it.
“We’re shooting for Sunday,” he said. “He feels a lot better, but he still feels it, and we don’t want him to take a step back.”
