Carlos Santana leaves the yard twice in win over Royals

|(7/27/14) Indians first baseman Carlos Santana reached base four times and became the first player to homer five times in a series this season, leading his team to a 10-3 win over the Royals in Kansas City.|
Santana launched a pair of two-run home runs -- one in the fifth and then again in the ninth. He added a single and finished 3 for 3 with two runs scored and four RBI. He owns a .232/.371/.456 slash line with 20 homers and 50 RBI in 340 at-bats. He also leads the American League with 72 walks.
|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.
