2023 Player Outlook

2023 Recap: Carlos Santana is no longer the slugger in the middle of the lineup like he was in Cleveland for many years, but the recent free agent signee will still be useful in a Twins uniform. He is a switch hitter that is ultra-disciplined at the plate and with 301 career home runs and 1011 RBIs he is a veteran bat that will be able to platoon with Alex Kirilloff at first base and help out in a designated hitter role. 

2024 Outlook: Kirilloff has struggled to hit left-handed pitchers, batting .207 with a .630 OPS in 157 career plate appearances and Santana hit .273 with a .767 OPS and as many walks as strikeouts facing lefties the past three years, including .266 with an .807 OPS in 2023. If used in a part-time role facing mostly lefties, Santana can be productive but if tasked to be an everyday player at age 38, he’s likely to be a bust.
