Carlos Santana News
Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Carlos Santana hit a significant milestone during Saturday's game against the Miami Marlins. The veteran slugger blasted a three-run home run off left-hander A.J. Puk on Saturday. That home run marked his 300th career home run, which makes him the 159th player in history to achieve that goal. It's also worth noting that Santana became the 303rd player in history to reach 1,000 RBI. The Brewers ended up dropping this contest 5-4, but at least Santana was able to put together a big game.
Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Carlos Santana displayed some power in Friday night's 5-3 win over the visiting Washington Nationals, going 2-for-3 with two solo home runs and a walk while hitting third in the lineup. The Brewers acquired Santana in a midseason trade from the Pittsburgh Pirates, and he's now up to 21 home runs, 75 RBI, six stolen bases and 71 runs scored while hitting .236 (118-for-500) in 133 total games with Pittsburgh and Milwaukee. In 39 games for the Brewers, he's slashing .239/.306/.439 with nine homers and 22 RBI in 170 plate appearances, but he's been heating up in the season's final month. The 37-year-old veteran switch-hitter has gone 14-for-50 (.280) with three homers, a double, seven RBI and 12 runs in 13 starts so far in September.
Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Carlos Santana (ankle) is back in the lineup on Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs and right-hander Kyle Hendricks, playing first base and batting third in the order. Santana will return to the field after missing the last two games with a sprained right ankle, but the injury was never considered too serious. The 37-year-old left-handed-hitting veteran hasn't been very good for the Brewers since they acquired him from the Pittsburgh Pirates at the trade deadline in early August, going 22-for-101 (.218) with six home runs and 15 RBI in 25 games. In eight career at-bats against Hendricks, Santana is hitting .250 with one RBI.
Kansas City Royals first baseman/designated hitterCarlos Santana gets overlooked every single season. The reason is because of rotisserie bias (Roto is the more popular format), but Santana is always such a value in points leagues, where hitters lose points for strikeouts but are awarded points for walks. Santana has posted a walk rate equal to or higher than his strikeout rate in three straight seasons. Even when his strikeout rate is higher than the walk rate, it's not by much. His strikeout rate has also been below 17 percent in five straight seasons, meaning that he will not lose you a lot of points in those formats. He also provides a consistently high on-base percentage, which is huge in those formats. But it's not like he should be totally ignored in Roto leagues, either. The ISO did dip in the shortened 2020 season, but it was at .234 in 2019, the second-highest mark of his career, and he swatted 34 homers with 110 runs, 93 RBI and four stolen bases that season. Due to his disappointing shortened season, Santana now has an ADP of 281 overall, which seems insanely low since he was going around 136 overall last season. Take the discount, especially in points leagues.
