2022 Player Outlook

Santana hit .214 with 19 home runs and 69 RBI for the Royals last season and ultimately, it was a lot of the same for Santana. Sure, the power took a bit of a hit, but he posted a 13.1 percent walk rate, which is great, and makes him incredibly value in leagues that value on-base percentage, and he doesn't strikeout much. Santana isn't getting any younger, and he's now hit .220 or less against righties in three of the past four seasons. Santana has had a great career, and will forever be a favorite of those that play in OBP setups. However, Santana could very well find himself in a platoon where his appearances are primarily against lefties. Over the past four seasons, here are his marks in the OPS category against righties, starting with 2021: .636, .668, .878, and .748. Those marks were boosted by his walk rate, and unless there's an injury to one of the younger Royals, Santana will have a hard time finding regular at-bats.
