Indians' Kipnis, Chisenhall, Santana have good history vs. Guthrie
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, first baseman Carlos Santana and third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall all have a pretty good track record against Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, who is on the hill Tuesday for Kansas City.
Kipins is batting .550 (11 for 20) with two home runs, three doubles and nine RBI in his career against Guthrie. While Santana is batting .476 (10 for 21) with two home runs, three doubles and four RBI, and Chisenhall is batting .533 (8 for 15) with one double, one home run and five RBI against the veteran right-hander.
Carlos Santana drives in two in Indians' Friday win
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) Indians first baseman Carlos Santana drove in two runs in Friday's win over Detroit. Santana went 1 for 3 with a double and two walks. He scored three times and increased his average to .222 with 10 RBI.
Indians 1B Santana slugs second homer in three games
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) The Indians have yet to hit a home run this season with a man on base, but at least first baseman Carlos Santana is contributing solo shots lately.
Santana slugged his second homer in three games to help his team defeat the White Sox. He ripped one off Hector Noesi in the second inning and added a walk and leads the team with three blasts.
The switch-hitter has been the Indians' steadiest regular this season, which isn't saying much. He has hit safely in all but four games and boasts a slash line of .229/.339/.438.
Indians' Carlos Santana slugs second home run Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Indians first baseman Carlos Santana went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 7-2 loss to the Twins Sunday.
Santana's home run came in the top of the ninth inning, so it had no impact on the outcome of the game. It was his first extra-base hit in more than a week.
"They changed their approach," said Santana to Cleveland.com. "But we face them a lot this year so I'll have to change my approach to them. This is what happens in this league."
Santana has hit .244/.354/.415 with two home runs and seven RBI in 41 at-bats in 11 games.
Indians' Brett Hayes to join roster Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Indians catcher Brett Hayes will join the major-league roster Tuesday to serve as the team's backup catcher while Yan Gomes recovers from a knee sprain, MLB.com reports.
Hayes hit just .135/.151/.212 in 52 at-bats with the Royals last season. First baseman Carlos Santana will be the team's emergency catcher Sunday if Roberto Perez can't go the full game.
|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.
