Twins welcome their latest Santana

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Ervin Santana's given name was Johan. This was a fine way to be identified for the right-hander raised in the Dominican Republic and working his way up through the minor leagues.

Except there was this other pitcher named Johan Santana who had begun to make a big name for himself with Minnesota.

Baseball card after baseball card would come to him from confused autograph seekers, when Santana was just an unproved prospect with the Angels organization. So he decided to make the change in 2003. Enamored with former NBA star Earvin Johnson and his famous nickname "Magic," Santana switched from Johan to Ervin and forever separated himself from the eventual two-time AL Cy Young Award winner.
