CARLOS SANTANA RUMORS

How to Handle Your Bear; AKA What to do with Carlos Santana?

Have you ever wondered where the Indians might be if Santana’s walks were base hits? If he could beat the shift a bit more and get guys into scoring or home more often? If he would just make that small adjustment, that we have all seen glimpses of over the last few years and commit to it? I am not saying that the fate of a season comes down to a single player, but let us be honest...

Carlos Santana: Are Injuries to Blame?

There wasn’t a player on the Indians’ roster who received more negative comments this season than Carlos Santana. Long been the divisive player, representing the current debate between analytical and traditional fans, Santana did not have the type of season fans on either side of the aisle came to expect from him. Many are now calling for his head and urging that his career in...

Listen to Tom Hamilton call Carlos Santana’s “prodigious grand slam!”

The fireworks guy had no trouble doing his job this time. The Indians won 12-1 on Friday night against Chris Sale and the White Sox. They scored six of those runs in one inning, capped off by a monster grand slam by Carlos Santana. Thankfully Tom Hamilton was there to make the call as he always is. He referred to it as “prodigious,” which was pretty cool even if it’s also kind...

Bode Plots: What is wrong with Carlos Santana?

Carlos Santana has been having an interesting season at the plate. In his most recent stretch of games, he only has three hits in the last 26 plate appearances (3-for-21 with four walks), but he has made each of those hits count. Santana had two home runs over the weekend against the New York Yankees, and, on Monday, he hit a ninth inning single off of left-hander Jon Lester to...

On sluggers, arbitrary milestones, and Carlos Santana

When the Cleveland Indians were at their peak from 1995-2001, they had the biggest, baddest offense in the league. It was a glorious time to love the sport of baseball in Northeast Ohio. During that seven-year stretch — the height of MLB’s steroid era — the Tribe ranked top-two in baseball in total runs, doubles, home runs, batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging...

Should The Indians Trade Carlos Santana?

Make no bones about it, Carlos Santana‘s season has been the most disappointing of any Indians player this season. While much improved over the last few games, Santana’ batting line is a disappointing .221/.352/.381 with 10 home runs through 82 games played. If the season ended today, his 112 wRC+ rating would by far be the lowest of his career. Much of Santana’s struggles...

Carlos Santana…surprise, surprise….AL Player of the Week

After tearing apart the Kansas City Royals this weekend, it was no shocker that Tribe first baseman/DH Carlos Santana has been named American League Player of the Week. Over his last six games, Carlos has had quite the run. How does 14-23, six homers, three doubles, 10 RBIs, eight runs scored sound to you? Pretty good.

Santana tries to follow up season-high showing

Carlos Santana has gone through his share of peaks and valleys in an overall disappointing season, but the Cleveland Indians are hoping his latest effort leads to a positive stretch. The inconsistent first baseman looks to help the visiting Indians avoid their first series loss of the month Wednesday against the Minnesota Twins.

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. Given his numbers over the first two...
