Latest Update Santana homers in Indians win Thu Sep, 11, 10:33 PM
Has a tremendous bat for a switch-hitter, complete with power, patience and run-producing ability. Is also a good athlete who made a smooth transition from catcher to infielder.
Flaws: : His game-calling skills behind the plate weren't good enough to stay a catcher,nor was his ability to lead a pitching staff. Batting average consistency appears to allude him often.
Santana has been on an absolute tear as of late and his recent performances have made fantasy owners quite happy. It has been a tale of two halves for Santana, but when it is all said and done, his stat line is going to look quite nice.Analyst: David Kerr
It's amazing to think that Santana was batting .196 on June 20. His average is up to .235 and he's hit 27 home runs on the season. He's white hot at the moment and should stay that way for the remainder of the season.Analyst: David Kerr
Santana is hotter than a frying pan... again. He had a pedestrian August after being one of baseball's hottest hitters during June and July. He's slugging over .600 in September so far, smacking three homers and two doubles in nine games. He's fantasy's best catcher in OBP formats -- with apologies to Buster Posey. Analyst: Spencer Silva
There's nothing better than seeing your fantasy catcher get hot at just the right time. Santana has now hit safely in seven of his last eight game sand has homered in three of his last five. Add to that, eight RBI and four runs scored over the last eight games and you've got the perfect recipe for late-season fantasy surge. The .229 average is a huge bummer but the fact that is comes with a .366 OBP, 25 home runs and 72 RBI, allows us to forgive the one shortcoming.Analyst: Howard Bender
