Santana Showing Signs of Heating Up

Maybe, just maybe, the bat of Cleveland Indians man-without-a-position Carlos Santana is finally heating up. It is tough to guess the exact culprit for the struggles of the once-reliable slugger at the plate this season, but since his return from the seven-day concussion disabled list at the beginning of June, his bat has been a bit livelier.
