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.

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.

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).

Insight: Santana was hit in the mask by a foul tip May 25, leading to his second concussion in the last three seasons. It seems as though the Indians are being extra careful with Santana, who is having a dull season at the plate (.159/.327/.301, 6 HR, 17 RBI).

Insight: In 27 lifetime at bats, Santana has just three hits against the right-hander. Santana has had an underwhelming season, hitting just .151 over 46 contests. The only reason he's still owned in so many leagues is because of his catcher eligibility.
