Indians | Carlos Santana homers from the right

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 14:55:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana had a home run Sunday, Aug. 23, in a 4-3 win over the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: This is noteworthy for Santana ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) because it was his first homer from the right in 142 at-bats this season. Fourteen of the 15 homers Santana has hit are from the left side. Santana is still an overwhelming choice to play in FantasyScore when he bats left, but it's nice to see switch-hitting power.

Indians | Carlos Santana hits No. 14

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 05:23:53 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana went 1-for-5 with two runs, a home run and two RBI during Cleveland's 7-3 win over the New York Yankees Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: For the most part, Santana ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been a huge disappointment this season. He leads the American League in walks, though, which presents sneaky value in points leagues, daily contests and formats counting on-base percentage. His 56 runs and 57 RBI aren't deal breakers, either. However, the .225 batting average and measly 14 home runs aren't cutting it. There is still hope Santana can finish the campaign strong, but he hasn't shown any signs of stringing together a hot streak all season.

Indians | Carlos Santana will be DH

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 12:24:46 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana will serve as the designated hitter against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Friday, July 24, and is batting fifth in the lineup. 1B Jesus Aguilar will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is receiving a day off from the field but is still in the lineup. He is hitting .281 this month and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore. Aguilar was recently called up and should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Indians | Carlos Santana finally showing signs?

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 15:02:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is 11-for-39 over his past 13 games with seven runs, a home run, four RBI, two stolen bases and a .853 OPS.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been putting up respectable counting stats (41 runs, 10 home runs, 40 RBI and five stolen bases) and a nice on-base percentage (.353) this season, but his .221 batting average has been a serious anchor. Santana is a buy-low candidate in seasonal leagues, especially where he is still eligible at catcher. FantasyScore players could have a nice value on their hands, too.

Indians | CLE not likely to bail on Carlos Santana

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:35:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is showing diminished power for the second straight season, but the team is likely to stick with him rather than listen to trade offers as it is difficult to find offense. Plus, the team might be reluctant to move him since he will earn $6 million this season, and $8.25 million in 2016 with a club option of $12 million in 2017. Those salaries are considered club friendly.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) has struggled at home, posting just two of his nine homers at Progressive Field. He has hit right-handed pitchers fairly well, posting all nine of his homers, and all but three of his extra-base hits, vs. RHP.

Indians | Carlos Santana batting fifth

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:46:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is back in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, July 4, batting fifth. 1B/OF Brandon Moss, who started at first base Friday, July 3, will play right field and bat seventh, with OF David Murphy receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is only batting .197 on the road this season and is just 3-for-23 over the last seven days. You can find better options at first base in FantasyScore for a comparable price.

Indians | Carlos Santana sitting vs. Bucs

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:52:43 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is not in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to utilize a designated hitter Friday, Santana ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) receives the night off with Brandon Moss ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) filling in at first base. Santana's disappointing and career-low .211 batting average is fueled by a unsustainably low .231 BABIP, which is another career worst. Expect him to turn the corner at some point, so seasonal owners should remain patient.

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.
