If so maybe Van will pick him up for until Kesler returns.
This was my thinking on the matter as well.

Unless something else significant is going to be done to bring in a 3rd line C who can bump up to the 2nd line as a temp while Kesler rehabs, i wouldn't mind seeing Santorelli brought in as a stop-gap. He's not a complete player by any stretch, but it wouldn't hurt to have a bit of competition/insurance in case Schroeder falls on his face and isn't ready.

If he doesn't show well while Kesler is out, no big deal...throw him back on waivers. If he does show decently well, keep him on in the sort of role Tambellini and Ebbett have filled in the last couple years as a skilled sort of utility player. Who knows, maybe Santorelli would even pick up a bit of a defensive conscience under AV.
