1B Carlos Santana went 1-for-3 in Tuesday's Cactus League victory vs Giants. He walked and scored a run.

Fantasy Impact: No-one walks in spring training ...... except Carlos Santana who leads the club with 5. He led the league with 113 BB last year although with Brandon Moss hitting behind him this season, he should see a few more pitches to hit.

Carlos Santana hit a home run in Sunday's Cactus League victory over the Padres. He finished 1-for-3 with 1 strikeout. It was his second HR of spring.

Fantasy Impact: The combination of his exceptional walk rate (league leading 113 in 2014) and power (98 career home runs), make Carlos Santana a solid option at 1B. The addition of Brandon Moss to hit 5th should benefit the first baseman in 2015.

Carlos Santana enjoyed his best day of spring training, going 2-4 with a single and a 2 run homer.

Fantasy Impact: The Indians' first baseman hit 27 HR last year but his batting average dropped to a disappointing 0.231. He will provide solid value as a top 15 1B but will have extra value in leagues where he has C or 3B eligibility.

Carlos Santana got into the groove with a double, a walk & a RBI. He started the day mired in a 1 for 11 streak with 5 SO in his first 4 spring training games.

Fantasy Impact: Carlos Santana is a class hitter. He led the league with 113 walks last year and should be a reliable contributor in R, RBI, HR & AVG plus he will steal a few bases.
