Danny Santana to start at shortstop Saturday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/16/14) Twins outfielder Danny Santana will make his return to shortstop for the first time in nearly two months Saturday against the Royals.

Santana was moved off shortstop after suffering a knee injury, making 25 starts in centerfield since his return. He has appeared in 43 games in center and 18 at shortstop this season. 

Danny Santana drills four hits in defeat of Houston
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/13/14) Twins versatile rookie Danny Santana has been on a roll lately, but he ramped it up even further Wednesday against the host Astros.

Santana smacked four singles and scored a key run in the eighth inning to help his team win. He is 14 for 28 in a six-game hitting streak that followed an 0-for-11 slide.

Hitters to start in Week 20
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/10/14) Need a sleeper for Fantasy Week 20 (Aug. 11-17)? Caleb Joseph, Chris Carter, Kolten Wong, Casey McGehee, Danny Santana and Corey Dickerson are all players to consider.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

How do you like Danny Santana now?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/5/14) Now more than two weeks since his return from the DL, where he had a chance to stabilize after streaking to begin his career, the verdict on Danny Santana is in: He's still good.

Granted, he owes much of his production during that time to a five-hit effort Sunday, but even in the 14 games preceding it, he still managed an .821 OPS, continuing to showcase the extra-base power that eluded him for much of his minor-league career but isn't totally far-fetched for a still-developing 23-year-old. And of course, no one doubts he can run.

I'm still skeptical of his batting average (which isn't to say he can't provide a respectable one, but .325 for a 23-year-old who strikes out four times as often as he walks is begging for correction), but factoring in the power, Santana's skill set isn't so different from the one that's made Arismendy Alcantara such a popular pickup over the last few weeks. And Santana is the hotter hand right now.

So fittingly, I've moved Santana up to 18th in my shortstop rankings (17th in Rotisserie), one spot ahead of Alcantara. And that's a risk-averse ranking. I'd say both he and Alcantara have more upside than Alcides Escobar, Jhonny Peralta, Erick Aybar and Jed Lowrie, so if you can afford to gamble, you might want to bypass those safer types for one of the up-and-comers.
