The Cleveland Indians believe C Carlos Santana has improved his defensive skills considerably behind the plate. "He's had a hot start offensively," said bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. "I think he's still working behind the plate. I mean, he's still further ahead offensively than defensively, but he's doing the job, and he's taking more pride in his defense." Santana threw out only 25.4 percent of attempted base stealers last year, which ranked in the middle of the pack in the American League, and he led the AL in passed balls with 10. However, Santana has done a better job communicating with the club's pitchers so far this year.
Fantasy Tip: Fortunately for Santana's fantasy owners, his defense won't play a part in your decisions. However, the more he improves behind the dish, the more reason the Tribe will have to continue running him out behind the plate instead of at first base or designated hitter.

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana (thumb) did not start Sunday, April 14, against the Chicago White Sox, but he did make a pinch-hitting appearance. He drew a walk in the ninth inning.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Santana is nearing a return to the starting lineup. He'll have the team's off day Monday, April 15, to rest further. While it's a bit risky to plug a guy back into the lineup when he hasn't played a full game, Santana is worth the risk.

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana (thumb) has been scratched from the starting lineup Saturday, April 13, due to pain in his left thumb.
Fri, 12 Apr 2013 13:22:51 -0700
Cleveland Indians manager C Carlos Santana (hand) could return to the lineup as early as Saturday, April 13, according to manager Terry Francona.
Fantasy Tip: Santana dodged a bullet with this injury, as it looked pretty serious when it initially occurred. The Tribe was cautious and held him out an extra day, too. Get him back in your lineups if he returns tomorrow.

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana (wrist) caught a bullpen and hit in the cages Thursday, April 11, and he thinks he could play Friday, April 12, but the team will likely be cautious and give him a few more days off.
Fantasy Tip: It's good news that Santana is already back to performing baseball activities. Expect him to return sometime this weekend, and you should only begin to worry if he has a setback or doesn't return this weekend. In the meantime, add a catcher off the waiver wire to hold you over. John Buck and Evan Gattis are attractive pickups in single-catcher leagues.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said the team hopes C Carlos Santana (thumb) will only have to miss a few days because of his thumb injury. Santana is considered day-to-day at this point.
