Carlos Santana went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, a run scored and a walk during the Indians' 6-0 win over the Orioles on Saturday.
It has been a tale of two halves for Santana in 2014, hitting .207 through 299 up to the All-Star break and .300 over his last 100 at-bats following the Midsummer Classic. Combined, Santana is hitting .231 with 21 home runs and 59 RBI on the season despite a miserable start to the year and now needs to be a fixture in all fantasy lineups while swinging a hot bat.

Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
