Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, two RBI, three runs scored and a walk against the White Sox on Friday.
It hasn't been the best of starts for Santana (.167 BA), but he has managed to be productive in the power categories (4 HR w/ 11 RBI) while he struggles out the gates. He has now gone 6-for-15 (.400 BA) over his last four games, a streak which features three multi-hit games, so it appears he is finally starting to heat up as the weather becomes increasingly warmer. Considering the lack of production at the catcher position outside of the top tier options, there is no reason to think Santana can't finish near the top of the power categories once he starts to show some consistency.

Ray McDonald has been cleared by NFL in one of two cases.
Apparently there was not sufficient evidence to charge McDonald for the Domestic Violence charge that's been lingering over him since last season. The other charge is a sexual assault charge, which is still being investigated. It's unclear whether or not McDonald will actually miss any time during the upcoming season. Analysis: Spencer Silva
