Danny Santana might be getting a little too much love


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) I'll admit Danny Santana is kind of interesting in Fantasy. He has something of a pedigree, ranking ninth among Twins prospect according to Baseball America, and can run, as he's shown with his four stolen bases in 23 games. But "kind of interesting" normally doesn't spur me into action.

For one thing, I don't trust the playing time just yet. He has emerged as the Twins primary center fielder in recent days, but that's at least partially because of Aaron Hicks' shoulder injury. The Twins also have Eduardo Escobar to man shortstop, Santana's natural position, which could condemn the rookie to a platoon role in the long run.

That is, assuming he doesn't wind up back in the minors first. Again, he has speed and seems to be developing gap power at age 23, but the underlying numbers -- most notably his 20 strikeouts to just four walks in 77 at-bats -- suggest he's in for a major correction in batting average. He was hitting just .268 at Triple-A Rochester prior to his promoiton and has hit only .274 over his minor-league career.

That's not to say he can't improve and doesn't have a future in the big leagues, but the attention he's getting in Fantasy might be a little too much too fast. I'd look to Eugenio Suarez first if I had to dig that deep into the shortstop pool.

Is Danny Santana already the starter at short for Twins?


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Ron Gardenhire claimed late last week that his Twins were planning on a three-player rotation at shortstop. One of those players - Pedro Florimon - has since been demoted. And Eduardo Escobar has not started at that position since May 2.

That leaves promosing rookie Danny Santana as the last man standing. His strong start to his career and quick bat could lock him in as the starting shortstop going forward. Santana has four hits in his first nine at-bats and has fanned just once. He is 3 for 5 in his last two games with two doubles.
