|Carlos Santana started off the 2013 season as the Indians' primary catcher, but the emergence of Yan Gomes led to him spending more time as the team's designated hitter with occasional appearances at first base. The result was a win-win for Fantasy owners, as Santana retained his catcher eligibility while setting a career high for batting average (.268) and posting the highest on-base percentage (.377) of his three full major league seasons. Santana also fulfilled his potential as a 20-homer, 70-run, 70-RBI producer. An ultra-patient approach helps Santana to thrive in points leagues, and he finished as the top catcher in Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com formats for the second time in three years. He is also a top option in Rotisserie formats, so regardless of what type of league you're in, look to target Santana in the early rounds as one of the top three catchers available.
