This is playoff week! and they said Johan was probable all day.
Now ESPN bottom line says hes not starting because of blister
Manager Ron Gardenhire said Saturday that LHP Johan Santana is scheduled to take his next turn in the rotation. Santana left Friday night's game after five innings because of a broken nail on the middle finger of his left hand. He won't throw before his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Detroit.
Breaking a nail won't keep Santana out at this point. Reserve him at your own risk at this point. His matchup at Detroit is favorable -- actually any matchup is favorable for him.
