Carlos Santana goes deep vs. Orioles on Monday

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 2-for-2 with two walks and a two-run, home run in the Indians' 12-0 demolition of the Orioles on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

In this game, Santana looked like the player that you drafted. He got on-base four times and hit his ninth home run of the season. He is only slugging .333 vs. LHP so the home run off LHP Vidal Nuno is encouraging. Terry Francona said "It was nice to see Santana hit a home run right-handed, then left-handed, hit a ball in his last at-bat in the left-center-field gap, those were things that will serve him well."

Carlos Santana racks up four hits on Saturday

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 1-for-4 with two runs and a walk in game one of the doubleheader and 3-for-4 with one run and a walk in game two.

Fantasy Impact

If anyone needed a couple of big games at the plate, it was Carlos Santana. His .689 OPS in 2017 is the lowest of his career and his .146/.255/.292 June slash line is the worst of the season. Getting on base six times in Saturday's doubleheader is a step in the right direction.

Carlos Santana hitless as June slump continues

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 0-for-4 in the Indians 6-4 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

The switch-hitter is mired in a 5-for-40 slump in June (.125 AVG). With .305 OBP, he is getting on-base at a career low, so he is not even helping in points/OBP leagues. It is difficult to justify starting Santana until he breaks out of this slump. His .225 BABIP is the lowest of his career and he needs to get his hard-hit rate back above 2016's 35%.

Carlos Santana hitless in rubber vs. White Sox

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Sunday in the Indians' 4-2 win over the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Santana is hitting just .156 (5-for-32) in June, with two of the hits going for home runs. The switch-hitter has never helped fantasy owners with batting average but he is usually a reliable producer in points or OBP leagues. Unfortunately, this season his .315 OBP is the lowest of his career. The 12% walk rate looks fine and puts him in the top-40 of qualified hitters, but it is significantly lower than the 15.5% that was his career average before the season started.

Carlos Santana hits seventh home run of the season Saturday

Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs on Saturday against the Royals. It was Santana's seventh homer of the season.

Fantasy Impact

True to form, Santana has started the season slowly, but appears ready to take off in June, as he almost always does. This is likely your last chance to buy low on the slugger, so make some offers soon if you haven't already.
