by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Twins shortsotp Danny Santana picked up two more errors in Friday's game, bringing his total to eight so far this season. Santana, who moved to short full time this year, is second in the mjaors in errors this season.

"Those are the things we have got to clean up," general manager Terry Ryan said to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "Eventually you know that's going to get you and catch up to you. I think it's the concentration factor," Ryan said. "He needs to finish plays. Some of those are plays he certainly can and will and has made. At that position, it's vital that he finish plays."

Ryan is willing to wait and see to let the young player develop his defensive game more.

"He's a young kid, so we're going to give him that," Ryan said. "He's got limited experience at the major league level; we'll give him that. There's a process. There have been shortstops in the game that it took awhile. With all that put together, we're going to give him every benefit of the doubt."

Chris Carter out of Astros' lineup Saturday, Jonathan Villar in at SS


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) First baseman Chris Carter is out of the Astros' lineup Saturday against the Mariners with Marwin González getting the start instead.

Carter has started at first base 20 of the Astros' 23 games this season.

With Jed Lowrie recently placed on the disabled list, Jonathan Villar will make his second straight start at shortstop on Saturday.

"Villar played very good shortstop (Friday)," manager A.J. Hinch said to the Houston Chronicle. "I want to keep him in the mix. I wanted Marwin to face Walker. He's had limited time against him, but he's had a little bit of success. We have to keep our guys fresh. One of the downsides of carrying 12 position players is the lack of rest you can get your guys. There's only three bench players, especially with (Evan) Gattis being the primary DH.

"So when I can get Carter off his feet for a day and it matches up well with Villar and Gonzo that’s good."
