Latest Update Carlos Santana drove in two runs in losing effort Fri Aug, 01, 12:53 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 wrapped up his best month of the season, by far, as he finished with a slash line of .313/.407/.615 with eight of his 20 home runs coming in July. The multi-positional eligible Santana will look to carry over his recent success into the dog days of summer as his fantasy owners are much deserving for sticking with him through three months of mediocrity.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Santana has awarded fantasy owners, that remained patient with him, with five home runs over his last three games. The multi-position eligible on-base machine (.371 OBP) is now up to 20 home runs and 50 RBI on the year and looks primed for a huge second half.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Santana provided the offense for the Indians on Friday night, as his second half surge continues. He is now slashing .353/.463/.706 with three home runs, three doubles, eight RBI and a stolen base since returning form the All-Star break and should remain a must-start in all but the shallowest of leagues despite owning a .222 overall average while hitting at this high of a rate.

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
