Anthony Santander News
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday. Santander got the day off on Monday but is hitting third and starting in left field for Tuesday's matchup with the New York Yankees and left-hander Jordan Montgomery. The outfielder is batting .233 with a .351 on-base percentage, and seven home runs in 174 plate appearances this season. He could be worth a look as a streaming option for fantasy managers in deeper leagues where on-base percentage is part of the scoring.
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday. Due to the timing of the move, he will officially miss the remainder of the 2021 season. Santander is dealing with a right knee sprain. He suffered the injury during this past Sunday's game against the Texas Rangers. Over 110 games this year, the 26-year-old slashed .241/.286/.433 with 18 home runs, 50 RBI and 54 runs. His injury should cement Ryan McKenna as an everyday starter in the outfield the rest of the way.
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander (hamstring) was held out of Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies due to a hamstring injury. Orioles manager Brandon Hyde told reporters that Santander sustained the injury during Tuesday's game. The severity of the injury isn't clear at this point, but he should be considered day-to-day. Ryan McKenna, who started in left field on Wednesday, would see an increase in playing time if Santander is forced to miss additional games. Over 108 games on the year, Santander is slashing .244/.289/.432 with 17 home runs, 48 RBI and 53 runs.
In 2019, Santander received his first extended action in the big leagues and he delivered with 20 home runs with a .261/.297/.476 slash in 405 plate appearances. The walk rate was 4.7%, strikeout rate was 21.2%, and ISO was .216. Last season, albeit in only 165 plate appearances, every stat increased. One noticeably change was that Santander started to elevate the ball more. The GB/FB ratio went from 0.91 to 0.48. The launch angle went from 15.3 to 24.7. That is yummy for home run production, especially in Camden Yards. Steamer has Santander projected for 30 home runs and five stolen bases with a .260/.309/.475 slash. He's being drafted as the 152nd player. Teoscar Hernandez, who is projected for 30 home runs and four stolen bases with a .236/.307/.453 slash is going at pick 77. That discrepancy seems crazy to me.
