Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana is 5-for-12 (.417) with a pair of home runs versus Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura.
Insight: Santana has tied his career home run mark and set a personal best with 82 RBI. As long as he stays catcher eligible, he's a fantasy-worthy starter.
 
9/11/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the second game of a doubleheader against the Twins.
Insight: Santana started out the day with a home run in the first game. He hit a line drive shot over the fence in the fourth inning of the second game. Santana singled to left in the eighth to drive in the Indians second run as Cleveland won, 2-0. The first baseman went 3-for-8 with two home runs and four RBI in the doubleheader.
 
9/11/2014 3:10:00 PM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana played excellent in the first game of a doubleheader against the Twins on Thursday.
Insight: Santana hit a bomb in the bottom of the first to start what was a big day for the Cleveland offense. He drove in two with the blast. Santana finished 1-for-4 but also made some spectacular plays in the field.
 
9/8/2014 11:51:00 AM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana is 10-for-20 with two home runs and five RBI in his career against Angels starter Jered Weaver.
Insight: Santana was 0-for-3 on Sunday but had an RBI-single on Saturday that ended up being the game-winning run. Santana is hitting .228 with 25 home runs, 22 doubles and 73 RBI. He may have a low average but his OPS is a respectable .799.
 
9/4/2014 12:22:00 PM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana is hitting just 3-for-37 (.081) against Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer in his career.
Insight: Santana, however, did hit a home run against Justin Verlander on Wednesday. Santana is hitting .286 with two home runs in his last five games. It would still take a leap of faith to start him against Scherzer.
 
8/16/2014 9:45:00 PM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana hit his first homer since July 27 Saturday against the Orioles.
Insight: Santana had gone 5-for-34 (.147) over his previous nine games. He's batting .231 on the year with 18 doubles, 21 homers, 59 RBI, 52 runs and an .802 OPS.
 
Hot7/27/2014 5:28:00 PM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana went deep twice Sunday, giving him five homers in the past three games.

Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana hit two homers Friday at Kansas City.
Insight: Santana has 17 homers in 333 at-bats this season and he's raised his batting average from .205 to .222 with a 9-for-16 stretch the past three games.
 
Cold7/19/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana is likely to sit the second game of the doubleheader with Detroit as he's just 3-for-34 (.088) against Game 2 pitcher Max Scherzer.
Insight: Santana hasn't hit right-handers all season (.184) so there is no reason to think he'll start in this unfavorable matchup.
 
Cold7/1/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana is hitless in nine at-bats against Dodgers right-hander Josh beckett.
Insight: Santana hasn't hit right-handers all season (.174) and has batted just .063 this week so there is no reason to think he'll start in this unfavorable matchup.
 
Hot6/25/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Indians C/1B/3B Carlos Santana went 4-for-5 with a double, a homer and two RBI Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.
Insight: Santana has batted .371 with six homers and 14 RBI since he returned from a concussion on June 6. He's up to .214 on the year and is finally starting to reward fantasy owners who exercised patience while he was carrying a .150 average for most of the season.
 
6/22/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: We wouldn't recommend starting Indians first baseman Carlos Santana Sunday against the Tigers.
Insight: That's because he's logged just three hits in 31 lifetime at bats against today's starting pitcher, Max Scherzer. Overall, Scherzer is 8-4 against Cleveland with a 4.75 ERA in 16 career starts.
 
Hot6/20/2014 10:34:00 PM
Description: Cleveland 1B/3B/C Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Tigers.
Insight: Santana has gone 16-for-48 (.333) with four homers and 11 RBI in June and is nearing the Mendoza line after coming into June with a .159 average.
 
6/20/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Cleveland 1B/3B/C Carlos Santana is a career 11-for-34 (.324) with three home runs versus Detroit right-hander Rick Porcello.
Insight: Santana's multi-position eligibility makes him a viable option when he's hitting, but he's batting just .191 this season after hitting safely in five of his last six games.
 
6/16/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Cleveland 1B/3B/C Carlos Santana is a career 9-for-17 (.529) against Angels starter Jered Weaver.
Insight: Santana's multi-position eligibility makes him a viable option when he's hitting, but that hasn't been often this season. He does have eight homers, but he's batting just .190 even after a three-hit game on Sunday.
 
6/15/2014 7:08:00 PM
Description: Cleveland 1B/3B Carlos Santana tagged the Red Sox for three hits Sunday in a 3-2 win.
Insight: Santana is an attractive fantasy piece because he plays so many different positions (first base, third base and catcher). Unfortunately, it's hard to start a guy when he's only hitting .190. Santana will string together a few good games here and there but consistency has never been his strong suit.
 
6/7/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Indians 3B/C Carlos Santana has reached base in six of his eight plate appearances since he returned from the concussion DL Friday.
Insight: Santana went 2-for-2 with a homer, two RBI, two runs and two walks Saturday at Texas. He has a .342 on-base percentage even though he's hitting just .171.
 
6/6/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Indians 3B/C Carlos Santana has been activated from the concussion disabled list.
Insight: Santana was hit in the mask by a foul tip May 25, leading to his second concussion in the last three seasons. Santana has had a tough time at the plate (.159, 6 HR, 17 RBI) this season. We'd be hesitant to start him tonight against Texas ace Yu Darvish (5-2, 2.08 ERA).
 
6/6/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Indians 3B/C Carlos Santana (concussion) has been activated from the concussion disabled list.
Insight: Santana was hit in the mask by a foul tip May 25, leading to his second concussion in the last three seasons. Santana is having a tough time at the plate (.159, 6 HR, 17 RBI). He'll be the DH in the series opener with Texas.
