Latest Update Carlos Santana hits 15th home run Wed Jul, 23, 10:21 AM
Has a tremendous bat for a catcher, complete with power, patience and consistency. Also has the ideal build for a receiver. Can also play first base and has the bat to DH, as well.
Flaws: : Still needs more work on his game-calling skills, as well as leading a pitching staff and footwork behind the plate. Will become even better with more consistency.
Santana has been pretty quiet since coming out of the break, so a game like this was much-needed by him and his fantasy owners. He's only batting .215, but his .353 OBP helps us see that he can still contribute elsewhere besides just home runs. His 42 runs scored and 42 RBI aren't exactly world-beating totals, but when compared to other catcher out there, those numbers look fantastic.Analyst: Howard Bender
Santana has now hit safely in seven of his last eight games as he continues an uphill battle to get back to a respectable batting average. He is now slashing .208/.349/.391 with 14 home runs and 36 RBI through 289 at-bats and remains a solid source of power form the catcher position, at least for the rest of this season. However, if his production doesn't improve in 2015 and he loses his catcher eligibility, he may find himself on the waiver wire outside of deep league formats, even if his power remains consistent.

After a rough start to the season Santana is now hitting .301 (28-for-93) with team-highs of seven home runs and 15 walks over the last 30 days.Analyst: Michael Pichan
With Santana getting the night off it is even more reason to consider rolling with Dodgers starter Josh Beckett tonight, at home, in any and all fantasy formats, especially daily league contests. For a look at the Indians starting lineup view our MLB Lineups page.Analyst: Michael Pichan
