Carlos Santana gets on-base twice vs. Astros

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 1-for-3 with a walk on Tuesday in the Indians' loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Getting on-base twice with lefty Dallas Keuchel on the mound was a good sign for Santana. The switch-hitter is struggling against left-handers this season, hitting just .200 with .667 OPS. With 10 runs, two home runs, and 14 RBIs, he is offering top-12 production at first base, and with more walks than strikeouts he continues to be more valuable in OBP and points leagues.

Carlos Santana with two RBI-doubles vs. Twins

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a run, and two RBIs in the Indians' 6-2 win over the Twins on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Carlos Santana ended Ervin Santana's streak of 22 scoreless innings with an RBI double in the fifth. The switch-hitter is enjoying a hot stretch hitting .375 (9-for-24) over his last five games with seven RBI and only one strikeout.

Carlos Santana with multi-hit game vs. Twins

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 2-for-5 with a run and an RBI in the win over the Twins on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The switch-hitter was hitless in five of his last nine games, so the multi-hit effort was pleasing for fantasy owners. Santana continues to hit at the top of the lineup against both right-handed and left-handed pitchers. There was the concern that leading off could result in a reduction in his RBI total, down from 2016's career-high 87. The 31-year-old already has 11 RBI in 14 games.

Carlos Santana hitless on Tuesday vs. White Sox

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 0-for-4 with a walk in the Indians' extra-innings win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The 31-year-old has made a steady start to the season, hitting .233 with one home run and six RBIs in 30 at-bats. He has hit at the top of the order ahead of Francisco Lindor, Michael Brantley, and Edwin Encarnacion. A position that will likely result in plenty of run-scoring opportunities.

Carlos Santana will see time in the outfield

1B/DH Carlos Santana went 1-for-4 with two runs, an RBI and a walk in the Indians' win over the Rangers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Edwin Encarnacion got the start at first base in anticipation of this weekend's interleague matchup with the Diamondbacks. Without the DH available, Indians' manager Terry Francona has said that Santana will play the outfield. The switch-hitter memorably made his outfield debut in the majors in the World Series last year. Additional position eligibility (depending on your league rules) would of course add extra value to the slugger.
