Indians 1B Carlos Santana lifts off for sixth home run of the season
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/27/15) Despite being hit by a pitch on his wrist and undergoing X-rays Tuesday, Indians first baseman Carlos Santana had a big game on Wednesday. In the team's win over the Rangers, Santana went 1 for 3 with a three-run home run in the third inning. It was Santana's sixth homer of the season, and second in his last three games.
Santana also walked twice and scored twice on Wednesday. He is still batting a low .221 on the season, but he has now reached base safely via a hit or a walk in eight straight games.

|(5/27/15) Indians first baseman Carlos Santana made it into the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, despite getting hit on the left wrist by a pitch in the ninth inning Tuesday. While X-rays came back negative, manager Terry Francona was still surprised Santana was healthy enough to play.
"I was happily shocked," Francona said on Wednesday morning, per MLB.com. "I checked on him this morning ... and he said, 'I'm good to go.' I try never to be pessimistic -- I don't think that's my nature -- but I just didn't think that's how he was going to feel this morning."
Santana proved in the third inning his wrist is fine, as he hit a three-run homer off Colby Lewis. It was his sixth home run of the season.

|(5/25/15) Indians first baseman Carlos Santana hit his fifth home run of the season in the bottom of the first inning of Monday afternoon's 10-8 loss to the Rangers.

Indians 1B Carlos Santana returns to starting lineup Thursday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Indians first baseman Carlos Santana returned to the starting lineup and will bat second Thursday night against the White Sox.
Santana has been sidelined since Sunday with back spasms. He has been held without a hit over his last 14 at-bats. He is hitting .220/.365/.341 with four homers and 20 RBI in 35 games plated.
Santana is a .200 (6 for 30) lifetime hitter, with three homers and four RBI against Thursday starter John Danks.
Cleveland is favored (-130) at Chicago, per VegasInsider.com.
|2014 summary: Moving between multiple positions apparently doesn't agree with Carlos Santana. Over the first two months, Santana lacked a regular position, shifting among catcher, first base, third base and designated hitter, and through 50 games, he was batting .159 with six home runs and seven doubles. After a brief stay on the concussion DL, Santana came back as the Indians' regular first baseman -- with just the occasional start at DH -- and his production took off. Santana hit .266 with 21 home runs the rest of the way, and he finished as the second-ranking catcher-eligible hitter in points leagues and third-ranking catcher in Rotisserie value.|
Playing time status: Santana is now entrenched at the Indians' starting first baseman, and with no more catching duties, he could match or exceed his career high of 155 games played.
2015 outlook: By losing his catcher eligibility, Santana loses some value, but he retains eligibility at third base, which takes some of the sting away. While he is farther back among the first base pack, Santana could be a top three third baseman in points leagues (thanks to his high walk rate) and among the top five in Rotisserie leagues.
