Carlos Santana said Tuesday that he'll meet with Indians manager Terry Francona and general manager Chris Antonetti in the coming days to come up with a plan for spring training.
Sounds like the team is trying to decide how much first base, third base and catcher Santana will be asked to play. Hopefully he sees plenty of time out from behind the dish as it will help keep his body healthy. The good news for 2014 is that he will qualify at catcher in the vast majority of leagues even if he never dons the tools of ignorance once. ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
