Carlos Santana went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, three runs scored, a stolen base and two walks against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
Despite smacking his fifth home run of the season on Wednesday night, Santana continues to struggle at the plate now owning a batting average well south of the Mendoza Line (.154 BA), logging just 21 hits through his first 136 at-bats. His multiple-position eligibility makes him a solid fantasy asset at this current time, but something has to give before making him a staple in starting lineups as the season progresses.

Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
