Indians | Carlos Santana out in NL park

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 12:47:21 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is not in the starting lineup against the Atlanta Braves and SP Joel De La Cruz Wednesday, June 29, without the designated hitter in a National League park. 1B Mike Napoli is at first base and is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli doesn't hit for average and strikes out often, but he's been a great waiver wire find this year with 16 home runs and 52 RBI in his first year in Cleveland. Against a pitcher making his major league debut tonight, Napoli needs to be fired up in all fantasy lineups.

Indians | Rajai Davis sitting vs. Braves

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:03:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. 1B Carlos Santana is leading off against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is having a rebound fantasy season because of his added playing time and returned 36 runs, seven home runs, 28 RBI and 21 stolen bases with a .263/.328/.409. The speed alone makes him a viable option in all fantasy leagues. Santana receives a slight boost in daily contests Tuesday, but otherwise, there isn't a significant fantasy impact to Santana leading off. He should be viewed as a low-end starter at first base in the majority of formats.

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 13:21:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP John Gant Monday, June 27, because the team is not using a designated hitter.

Indians | Two more hits for Carlos Santana

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:45:01 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana went 2-for-3 with a double, walk, two runs scored and two RBIs while serving as the leadoff hitter and designated hitter Wednesday, June 22, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Santana wrapped up the homestand with a double, two homers and five RBIs in six games, and he has six clouts with 13 RBIs in the month of June. After a dismal start, he is putting up more extra-base hits. However, his batting average still leaves something to be desired for fantasy owners in rotisserie formats.

Indians | Carlos Santana leading off vs. Rays

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:25:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is leading off as the designated hitter against Tampa Bay Rays SP Blake Snell Tuesday, June 21. OF Rajai Davis is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: With 15 homers, Santana is having a nice showing in the category, but his .332 on-base percentage is much lower than his .365 career mark entering 2016. He has been jumping to the top of the lineup at times, and it isn't a significant impact on his fantasy value. Davis is having a nice season for fantasy owners with 35 runs, seven home runs, 27 RBI, 21 stolen bases and a .264/.332/.418 slash line. Outside of the shallowest setups, Davis is worth a roster spot, especially if you're chasing speed.

Indians | Carlos Santana leading off vs. Royals

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 13:03:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is leading off against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Monday, June 13, and Indians OF Rajai Davis is batting ninth Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Santana has a .335 on-base percentage this season but a .347 mark when slotted into the leadoff spot. Regardless, there is only a minimal fantasy impact with Santana now more likely to score a run than drive one in. Davis receives a hit, though, and both players are fringe starts outside of deep mixed and AL-only setups.

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 17:18:51 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Santana's batting average has never been pretty, but he has more than enough pop to be owned in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Indians | Two Indians sitting out

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:39:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli and C Yan Gomes are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Monday, May 23. 1B Carlos Santana will start at first base, while 2B Jason Kipnis will serve as the designated hitter. C Chris Gimenez will start at catcher and is batting eighth. 2B Michael Martinez will start at second base and is batting ninth against White Sox SP Erik Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez has only one hit in his last at-bats and should be avoided in most leagues. Martinez went 2-for-4 in the first game of the doubleheader but is still not a great starting candidate.

Indians | Carlos Santana hits another homer

Sun, 22 May 2016 04:17:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Cleveland's 5-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox Saturday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Through his past six games, Santana has seven runs, three home runs, eight RBI and a .389/.538/.944 slash line. He has shown to be a solid fantasy contributor in the past, and it isn't out of the question to expect him to extend this hot stretch a little longer. He is a low-end starter at first base in the majority of seasonal leagues.
