Oakland and San Diego are cellar dwellers in most offensive categories this season, giving Santana an opportunity to continue this recent revival. While the long ball has been an Achilles' heel to Santana, the A's (with Yoenis Cespedes on the DL) and Padres lack a formidable power hitter, alleviating any worries owners may harbor on employing Santana this week. Ryan Vogelsong (COL, OAK) Vogelsong's journey from the Japanese league to the Midsummer Classic was one of the more uplifting stories in baseball last summer. Alas, few expected the 34-year-old to replicate his wonderful performance of 13 wins, 2.71 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in the 2012 campaign. Yet after a middling start (4.19 ERA in his 19.1 innings in April...
