From 2015 to 2020, Santos appeared on NBC Sports Chicago, then Fox 32 Chicago as a sports anchor and reporter. She left to fill the same roles in her hometown at Fox 10 Phoenix.

Santos will host MLB Network’s highlight show “Quick Pitch” and appear on “Big Inning,” the whip-around program on MLB.TV.

She joins other MLB Network talent with Chicago ties, such as former Cubs Dan Plesac, Carlos Pena and Mark DeRosa and former White Sox Jim Thome. Former Cub Cameron Maybin, who joined Marquee Sports Network’s stable of analysts this week, also will appear on MLB Network.
