Johan Alexander Santana Araque (-enˈjoʊhɑːn sænˈtænə; born March 13, 1979) is a Major League Baseball (MLB) left-handed starting pitcher who is currently playing for the New York Mets. He is a native of Venezuela.

A two-time Cy Young Award winner with the Minnesota Twins, he was considered one of the best pitchers in baseball, with a pitch repertoire that included a 88-94 mph fastball, along with a circle changeup, generally considered his best pitch, and a slider. His warm-up music is the song "Smooth" by Rob Thomas and Carlos Santana.
