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.

Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said the team is giving Marcus Mariota more chances to run the football.
One of the bigger surprises this fantasy season has been the lack of running by Mariota, considering he came from a read option offense in Oregon. However, the rookie quarterback has still been a solid fantasy option despite the lack of running, so this will give a slight boost to his value if he is able to churn out a few yards on the ground. It’s always a tough situation when quarterbacks run more as they open themselves up for injury, but the Titans must feel confident that Mariota will know how to protect himself when he decides to take off and run.
