UPDATES & NEWS
Carlos Santana is not in the Indians starting lineup on Monday.
This is a day off for Santana because he is really struggling at the plate and has nothing to do with an injury. Santana has a brutal .145 batting average this season which is making his fantasy owners shake their fist at him. Hopefully, the slugging third baseman can turn things around quickly or he will find himself on the waiver wire. Do not drop him, but do not play him until he start hitting better.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
