Danny Santana named Twins' starting shortstop

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/28/15) As expected, Twins manager Paul Molitor announced that Danny Santana will be Minnesota's Opening Day starting shortstop, according to MLB.com on Saturday. Santana beat out Eduardo Escobar for the job, who started a team-high 86 games at shortstop in 2014 for Minnesota. Santana made only 32 appearances at shortstop.

Santana hit .319 with 40 RBI and 70 runs scored in 405 plate appearances in 2014. He has a .341 batting average this spring.

Molitor: Danny Santana hasn't won Twins' shortstop job

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/22/15) Twins manager Paul Molitor isn't sure what to do with Danny Santana

Originally expected to be the Twins starting shortstop, Santana has been pushed in camp by Eduardo Escobar

One option would be to move Santana back to center field, where he started 62 games last season. But on Saturday, Molitor said he hadn't considered that as an option. 

Molitor also said he wasn't ready to name Santana the Opening Day shortstop, leaving him without a position, per Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press

Santana is hitting .321 this spring. 

Twins want Danny Santana to draw more walks

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/15) Twins manager Paul Molitor said Tuesday he doesn't see Danny Santana as an option to bat second, per the Pioneer Press. However, he could slide down to the ninth spot in the lineup as a second leadoff hitter to help turn over the lineup.

Santana had 20 stolen bases and a .353 on-base percentage in 101 games as a rookie in 2014, but he managed just 19 walks to 98 strikeouts.

"If he doesn't hit .320, that number becomes a little more glaring if the walks don't start to increase," Molitor said. "One of his projects at the end of last year and into this spring has been, 'I've got to put the ball in play a little more frequently.' He's another guy (where) his strikeouts don't match the type of game he should have. He's not a year into his big-league time. He just needs to improve."

Eduardo Escobar pushing Danny Santana for Twins' SS job

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/9/15) The Twins expected Danny Santana to be their starting shortstop, but Eduardo Escobar is making it a difficult choice for the team. 

Escobar was the starter last season, finishing with the second-highest doubles total among MLB shortstops. This spring, he's picked up where he left off last year. 

Escobar is 4-for-9 in the first three spring games, with a home run and a double. 

"He knows the situation, and it hasn't affected him in the least," Twins manager Paul Molitor told Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com. "He's had some good at-bats here early in camp. He's a little man who can drive the ball a little bit."

Twins' Danny Santana learning to play multiple positions

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/2/15) Danny Santana came to the Twins in 2007 playing primarily shortstop. Now, Santana is playing in the outfield and learning how to transition to a new position on the field.

"I didn't know how to play the outfield and I needed a lot of work," he said to MLB.com. "It wasn't hard, because I have the ability to play many positions. But the hard part was being in center field and throwing to the bases. At shortstop, you throw from different angles. In the outfield, you need to be on top to throw."

Santana hit .319 with 40 RBI and 70 runs scored in 405 plate appearances in 2014.

"There's a lot of people here who believed in Danny Santana's future for a long time. We were able to get a glimpse of that last year," manager Paul Molitor said. "I have a lot of confidence in that kid. He's going about his business very professionally. He's really a good listener and applier. Some guys listen well and have trouble taking it out there. He's pretty good at taking information and putting it into play."
