Indians | Carlos Santana gets mental day off

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 18:20:26 -0700

Cleveland Indians C-3B Carlos Santana was given a "mental" day off Monday, April 21, against the Kansas City Royals. Manager Terry Francona said Santana's only task after his pregame workout was to relax. "There's just a few reasons where I thought it'd be good for him," Francona said. "(It's) just because he's starting to chase some balls out of the zone. You can tell he's getting a little anxious. He's always had that volatile swing, but he stays in the zone so well. And (Sunday), he really started chasing."

Indians | Carlos Santana to be regular 3B

Tue, 25 Mar 2014 12:07:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona acknowledged Tuesday, March 25, that C Carlos Santana will be the team's starting third baseman to open the season, and it won't involve a platoon with 3B Lonnie Chisenhall. Santana will also serve as the backup catcher.

Fantasy Tip: There was a good chance Santana would have eventually gained 3B eligibility, but this confirms he'll do so rather quickly. Santana is a very valuable asset because of his multi-positional eligibility in all leagues.

Indians | Trouble at 3B for Carlos Santana?

Fri, 07 Mar 2014 09:28:40 -0800

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana has looked out of place at third base during spring games and right now, 3B Lonnie Chisenhall and every other third baseman in camp looks much better than Santana on defense at the hot corner. Santana hasn't received a lot of opportunities there and when he has, he's looked stiff and uncomfortable.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look good for Santana gaining positional eligibility at third base if he keeps this up, but it's also still pretty early in camp.

Indians | Game action will be test for Carlos Santana

Mon, 24 Feb 2014 20:35:55 -0800

Cleveland Indians C Carlos Santana has appeared comfortable at third based during workouts, but his first true test will come Wednesday, Feb. 26, as the team opens its Cactus League schedule against the Cincinnati Reds. "He continues to make really good strides," third base coach Mike Sarbaugh said Monday, Feb. 24. "The next step is game action and just taking the ball off the bat - the different angles, different speeds, top spins. The ball coming off the bat is going to be the big test."

Indians | Impressed with Carlos Santana at 3B

Sat, 22 Feb 2014 20:25:52 -0800

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said Saturday, Feb. 22, that he is impressed with the work of C Carlos Santana at third base. "To the trained or untrained eye, you wouldn't say, 'That's a catcher playing third base.' He's playing third," Francona said. "The game will tell us a lot more. It goes fast and the other team is trying to find ways to have you make errors. It's not just a coach hitting a fungo and making a physical play. It's slowing the game down and knowing situations."
