     Meanwhile, Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius plans to start a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment that has him returning to the big league team by mid-June.

Santana became a free agent on April 29, three days after he was designated for release by the Chicago White Sox, who signed him for a $4.3 million salary this year. The 36-year-old right-hander was 0-2 with a 9.45 ERA in three starts. He has a 149-127 record in 15 major league seasons.

     NFL NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Ndamukong Suh is headed to Tampa Bay. The defensive tackle has agreed to terms with the Buccaneers as a replacement for Gerald McCoy, who was released earlier this week after nine seasons with the Bucs.

     Suh and McCoy were rivals in college, when McCoy played at Oklahoma and Suh for Nebraska. Both have worn No. 93 as pros, McCoy is a six-time Pro Bowl selection with 54 1/2 sacks in 123 career games, while Suh's a three-time All-Pro who's been picked for the Pro Bowl five times and has 56 sacks in 142 games with the Lions, Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Rams.

     In other NFL news:

     - NFL players may be more likely to die from brain diseases and heart problems than Major League Baseball players, but the reasons are unclear. That's according to study published Friday involving 6,100 professional athletes who died between 1979 through 2013. Repeated head blows have been linked with a wasting brain disease in football players, who are generally bigger than baseball players. That girth can contribute to heart problems. But the study lacks data on family history and lifestyles that also affect disease risks.
