Indians | Carlos Santana solid against David Price

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 13:29:19 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is hitting .292 against Detroit Tigers SP David Price in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is batting fifth against Price Tuesday, June 23, and will look to continue his production against him. He has recorded four doubles and two RBI against Price in 24 at bats. Owners on FantasyScore can consider using Santana even though he is facing one of the better pitchers in the league.

Indians | Carlos Santana back in cleanup

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 22:16:02 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana had a three-run home run and RBI double Tuesday, June 16, against the Chicago Cubs in his return to the cleanup spot of manager Terry Francona's order. He also walked twice. "When I'm second, I don't say nothing because, you know, I like to play," Santana said. "But I feel much better (in the cleanup spot)."

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) is a solid source of power when he is on his game, and if he returns to the cleanup spot where he is more comfortable he might be ready for a hot streak.

Indians | Carlos Santana dropped to clean up spot

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 15:20:22 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana will bat fourth in the order Tuesday, June 16, against the Chicago Cubs and RHP Tanner Roark.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is just 1-for-17 in his last four games, and he hasn't had a multi-hit game in nine consecutive starts. While Santana has the increased opportunity for RBI, he should be avoided until he figures out his hitting stroke.

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:05:37 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) went 1-for-5 with a solo home run, as he hasn't had a multi-hit game since June 4. Santana is a risky play on FantasyScore, and owners should wait for him to string some solid outings together.

Fri, 29 May 2015 18:43:32 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana will be activated from the paternity list against the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming Santana ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is back in the lineup Sunday, he is worth using on FantasyScore. He was on fire prior to going on the paternity list, posting a 1.130 OPS in his last six games.

Indians | Carlos Santana headed to paternity list

Thu, 28 May 2015 14:37:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana was placed on the paternity list after the birth of his daughter Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Santana ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats until he returns to the lineup. Don't look now, but Santana looks to be heating up just like he did last season. He is riding a six-game hitting streak with five runs, five extra-base hits (including two home runs), six RBI and a 1.130 OPS. His buy-low window will close soon, and with catcher eligibility in a lot of formats, striking before he fully breaks out is advised.

Indians | X-rays negative for Carlos Santana

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:02:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana (wrist) underwent X-rays, which came back negative, after he was hit on the left wrist by a pitch Tuesday, May 26. Santana felt well enough to play Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has already homered Wednesday afternoon, so clearly his wrist isn't bothering him too much at all. He entered the game hitting just .219 (32-for-146), though, with five home runs and 24 RBI.

Indians | Carlos Santana snaps slump

Fri, 22 May 2015 20:11:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana had an RBI double in the seventh inning against the Cincinnati Reds Friday, May 22, snapping a 0-for-25 slump.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is hitting just .212 on the year, and while he has plenty of power upside, the risk probably isn't worth the potential reward at FantasyScore at his current price tag.

Indians | Carlos Santana back in the lineup

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:16:48 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana (back) is starting at first base and batting second against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) missed four games due to back spasms, and he is also struggling through his second consecutive early-season slump. FantasyScore players should take a wait-and-see approach before spending up for Santana. In seasonal formats, though, trying to sneak under the buy-low window before it slams shut is advised.
