Carlos Santana becomes Indians' primary first baseman


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Indians manager Terry Francona said the emergence of Lonnie Chisenhall has been one of the primary reasons he's moved Carlos Santana to first base, per MLB.com.

"To be honest with you, we're trying to put the best team out there that we can," Francona said prior to Sunday's game. "Lonnie [Chisenhall], I don't think there's anybody that would argue, deserves to be playing third base. So, we don't do the positions necessarily by what guys want to do. Lonnie has done a heck of a job.

"Carlos worked really hard [at third base], but what's kind of cool is that I think all the work he put in at third, I think it's made him a better first baseman. He's more active. He's more agile. Again, we'll see where it goes."


Carlos Santana riding hot streak after slow start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Indians infielder Carlos Santana has been among the best hitters in the league for nearly a month, dating back to May 22.

MLB.com noted Saturday Santana is second in baseball in OPS since that point, with a 1.137 mark in an 18-game stretch. He has five home runs, 15 RBI and 16 walks in that stretch, while hitting .333.

Santana got off to a slow start to the season, and is still hitting just .196 in 224 at-bats. In spite of that, he has a .725 OPS, thanks to 10 home runs and 53 walks.  


Breathe easy, Carlos Santana owners


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Finally, Carlos Santana owners, you're getting semblance of what you drafted.

With a .333 (17 for 51) batting average and four home runs in his last 15 games, the early-round mainstay, as I pointed out in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, has now outscored Yadier Molina in Head-to-Head points leagues.

Yes, that Yadier Molina, and yes, for the entire season.

Seeing as Santana is still batting just .191 on the season, you're hopefully beginning to grasp just what kind of potential he has at a historically low-scoring position. With continued correction in batting average, even if just to .230, you're looking at a stud.

Santana isn't quite as valuable in Rotisserie leagues, where his walks don't count for anything in and of themselves, but of course, he's no slouch as a power hitter and should ultimately rank among the top catchers in runs scored and RBI.


Carlos Santana slugs ninth home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Indians designated hitter Carlos Santana went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 4-3 win over the Angels Monday.

He's managed an extra-base hit in each of his last four games, going 6 for 15 with two home runs and two doubles during that stretch. Santana has hit .191/.346/.358 with nine home runs and 26 RBI in 215 at-bats.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Carlos Santana could be back by Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
