Description: Carlos Santana will be Cleveland's starting third baseman in 2014. SOURCE: Jordan Bastian, MLB.com
Insight: Santana (.268, 20 HR, 74 RBI) played third base in winter ball and a little during spring training. The 27-year-old should also see time at catcher and first base this season.

Description: Indians DH Carlos Santana has not looked comfortable at third base during Cactus League games, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: Santana played third base in winter ball and the Indians are trying him out there during spring training. The 27-year-old should get work in at catcher, first base and third base this season though he's slated to be the team's primary DH. His eligibility at catcher is what makes him valuable to fantasy owners.

Description: Indians catcher Carlos Santana "looked comfortable" at third base during his infield session Monday, according to Jordan Bastian of mlb.com.
Insight: Santana played third base in winter ball and the Indians are trying him out there during spring training. The 27-year-old may end up carrying eligibility at catcher, first base and third base, but his numbers work best at catcher.

Description: Indians catcher Carlos Santana has been working at third base, according to Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes.
Insight: Santana was expected to get most of his at-bats at DH this season allowing Yan Gomes to get the majority of the time behind the plate. If Santana adds 3B eligibility to DH/C he'll be even more valuable.
 
9/28/2013 9:42:00 AM
Description: Indians Carlos Santana went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, two walks, three runs and one RBI Friday against the Twins.
Insight: Santana has shown strong plate discipline, walking 90-plus times in three straight seasons, but he hasn't emerged as a 30-homer, 100-RBI threat. He has hit 19 homers with 71 RBI and .269/.379/.451 splits this season, and fantasy owners shouldn't pay for any more than that next season, when the catcher will be 28 years old.
 
8/31/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Indians Carlos Santana blasted five homers over his final 18 games of August.
Insight: He went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI Saturday against Detroit and is hitting .265 with 17 home runs, 60 RBI and an .827 OPS. Those are solid numbers, but fantasy owners expected more.
 
8/25/2013 10:18:00 AM
Description: Indians Carlos Santana is 8-for-21 (.381) with two home runs, six walks and six RBI over his last six games.
Insight: He's still only batting .221 in August, however. The catcher has a .265 average, 31 doubles, 16 homers, 57 RBI and an .826 OPS on the year.
 
8/24/2013 11:52:00 AM
Description: Indians Carlos Santana is hitless in eight at-bats against Minnesota right-hander Liam Hendricks.
Insight: Santana should post his third .800 plus OPS season in four years with the Indians. Santana was hitless against Friday's starter Sam Deduno and rapped out a pair of singles and a walk so maybe he can overcome this matchup too.
 
8/23/2013 11:59:00 AM
Description: Indians Carlos Santana is hitless in 11 at-bats against Minnesota right-hander Samuel Deduno.
Insight: Santana should post his third .800 plus OPS season in four years with the Indians, but this matchup isn't a good one and should be avoided.
 
8/13/2013 11:24:00 AM
Description: Indians Carlos Santana is hitless in nine at-bats against Minnesota right-hander Samuel Deduno.
Insight: Santana should post his third .800 plus OPS season in four years with the Indians, but this matchup isn't a good one and should be avoided..
 
8/8/2013 11:03:00 AM
Description: The Indians find themselves in a difficult position Thursday against Detroit. Yan Gomes caught all 14 innings in Wednesday night's loss but their other catcher Carlos Santana has been brutal against Tigers starter Max Scherzer.
Insight: Santana has just three hits against Scherzer in 25 at bats, though two of those hits went for home runs. Santanta, who played first base on Wednesday, is 2-for-13 in the series.
 
8/1/2013 8:47:00 PM
Description: Cleveland catcher Carlos Santana picked up three hits Thursday against the White Sox.
Insight: Santana is hitting .278 with 12 homers, 48 RBI, 48 runs and an .842 OPS. Those are strong fantasy numbers for a catcher, but the 27-year-old is capable of more if he puts it all together for a full season.
 
Cold7/7/2013 6:00:00 PM
Description: Cleveland catcher Carlos Santana went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Sunday against the Tigers.
Insight: Santana came in with poor career numbers against Detroit starter Doug Fister, but he greeted the right-hander with a homer in the first inning Sunday. The backstop is hitting just .190 with one home run over his last 17 games.
 
7/7/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: Cleveland catcher Carlos Santana should be avoided at all costs Sunday against the Tigers.
Insight: That's because he's facing a tough matchup versus Doug Fister (4-for-24 with five strikeouts). Fister is 5-3 with a 2.24 ERA in 12 career starts against the Indians.
 
7/5/2013 10:28:00 AM
Description: Indians catcher Carlos Santana is a solid 9-for-28 (.321) with three homers and a 1.066 OPS versus Detroit starter Rick Porcello.
Insight: After a strong April, Santana's numbers have slipped considerably and he nicked up. Perhaps this matchup will perk up his bat which has only produced a .223 batting average with a .699 OPS since May 1.
 
6/28/2013 2:48:00 PM
Description: Indians catcher Carlos Santana is not in the lineup Friday
Insight: Santana's absence is likely related to the hard foul ball he took off his left knee Tuesday which forced him out of Wednesday's lineup as well. He playing well this season, batting .269 with 10 HR, 32 RBI and an .842 OPS.
 
6/26/2013 4:52:00 PM
Description: Indians catcher Carlos Santana is not in the lineup Wednesday, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.
Insight: It's the first time he hasn't been in the lineup since May 9. Santana's absence is likely related to the hard foul ball he took off his left knee Tuesday.
 
6/18/2013 10:21:00 AM
Description: Indians catcher Carlos Santana has hit two homers over his last three games.
Insight: Santana is having a strong month of June, hitting .296 with nine RBI, an .867 OPS and an 8/6 K/BB in 15 games, after batting .200 with 28 strikeouts in May.
 
6/11/2013 11:26:00 AM
Description: Cleveland catcher Carlos Santana is 6-for-16 (.375) with two home runs and a 1.257 OPS against Texas starter Derek Holland.
Insight: Santana has put together a solid season (.283, 8 HR, 27 RBI, 33 runs), but most of the damage was done in April.
 
6/8/2013 10:26:00 AM
Description: Cleveland catcher Carlos Santana is 9-for-27 (.333) with three long balls and a 1.083 OPS against Tigers starter Rick Porcello.
Insight: Santana has put together a solid season (.278, 8 HR, 24 RBI, 32 runs), but most of the damage was done in April and not May. He's just 1-for-10 over his last three games which could negate this favorable matchup.
