Curious Case of Carlos Santana

To say that Carlos Santana had a rollercoaster season would be putting it lightly. Coming into the 2014 season, Santana was without a position as Yan Gomes was designated as the team’s everyday catcher at the end of 2013, and Nick Swisher had been the incumbent first basemen. Unless Santana was willing to be the everyday designated hitter, manager Terry Francona was going to have...

The makeup of the 2019 Cleveland Indians lineup

Carlos Santana…surprise, surprise….AL Player of the Week

After tearing apart the Kansas City Royals this weekend, it was no shocker that Tribe first baseman/DH Carlos Santana has been named American League Player of the Week. Over his last six games, Carlos has had quite the run. How does 14-23, six homers, three doubles, 10 RBIs, eight runs scored sound to you? Pretty good.

Santana Showing Signs of Heating Up

Maybe, just maybe, the bat of Cleveland Indians man-without-a-position Carlos Santana is finally heating up. It is tough to guess the exact culprit for the struggles of the once-reliable slugger at the plate this season, but since his return from the seven-day concussion disabled list at the beginning of June, his bat has been a bit livelier. Given his numbers over the first two...

Winter Ball Notebook: Is the Santana third base experiment over?

The Dominican Winter League playoffs began this past week, and one of the biggest surprises was the participation of the Indians’ Carlos Santana. Many were unsure as to how long Santana would remain with his Dominican team, but it does at least appear as if he will be remaining with Leones del Escogido for the time being.
