Indians | Versatility of Carlos Santana helps team

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana worked closely with former big league 3B Fernando Tatis in the Dominican Republic over the winter, logging 30 games in winter ball for Escogido. This spring, Santana will continue to train at third base, and he will also serve as the backup catcher behind C Yan Gomes. Manager Terry Francona, general manager Chris Antonetti and Santana had a meeting Wednesday, Feb. 12, to discuss a plan for Santana's spring. The Indians want the switch-hitting Santana in the lineup on a regular basis, and if he is not the regular third baseman, they'd like him to hit against left-handed pitching, since 3B Lonnie Chisenhall struggled mightily against southpaws in 2013.
