Surging Indians 1B Carlos Santana goes yard Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/11/15) It took Indians first baseman Carlos Santana a half-season to heat up, as it has in recent years, but he is finally showing signs of life.
Santana slammed a double and two-run homer Saturday against Oakland. The blast was his 10th of 2015.
He has four two-hit games in the last five, but the homer was his first since June 26. His .223 average is at its highest point in nearly a month.
Indians bench 1B Carlos Santana in Pittsburgh
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/3/15) Monumental struggles at the plate and a battle in a National League park have Indians first baseman Carlos Santana out of the lineup Friday night in Pittsburgh. Brandon Moss will play the position instead.
Santana continues to confound with his keen eye and inability to make consistent solid contact. He ranks second in the American League with 54 walks, yet is batting just .211 with 55 strikeouts in 256 at-bats.
|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.
