Manager concerned about Carlos Santana remarks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Terry Francona expressed concern Wednesday about a remark made by Carlos Santana in which he claimed that juggling positions has affected him at the plate.

"If that's how he feels, I'm going to have to sit down and talk to him," Francona told WTAM-AM.

Santana plays mostly third base for the Indians, but also serves as the backup catcher. He has historically hit better when he's been the designated hitter.

Position concerns hampering Carlos Santana offensively
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Carlos Santana asked in the offseason to play third base to avoid being relegated to full-time designated hitter duties, but has admitted his concentration on defense has affected his hitting, per WTAM-1100.

Santana ended a 0-for-19 slide Sunday, but has been a mess at the plate since spring training began. He is still among the league leaders in walks with 14, but his stat line of .196/.383/.233 is not what the Indians are looking for in their cleanup hitter.

Indians switch catchers for second game against Padres
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yan Gomes will not have to crouch behind the plate again in the doubleheader nightcap for the Indians on Wednesday. But he will serve as the designated hitter against San Diego left-hander Robbie Erlin while Carlos Santana takes over as the starting catcher.

Fantasy Analysis | 1395788857
Third base no big deal to Carlos Santana's value
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In the real-world sense, Carlos Santana's move to third base full-time is a big deal. His ability to play a premium position helps him retain some of the value he loses by no longer catching every day.

But for Fantasy owners, it doesn't really change anything. He's still eligible at catcher this year and because he'll back up Yan Gomes at the position, he figures to be eligible there next year as well.

In Fantasy, anybody who's eligible at catcher should play catcher. It's as simple as that. Catchers have to sit more often than any other position players, so their Head-to-Head point production, relative to other positions, is lacking. For you Rotisserie league owners, their run and RBI totals are also lacking. Go compare the numbers. It's plainly evident.

But won't playing third base every day give him more at-bats than the average catcher? Yes, but that's all the more incentive to play him at catcher, where he'll give your team a bigger advantage over the competition.

That's not to say you can't play him at third base in an emergency situation, but slotting him there for the long haul is wasting his value. If nothing else, you should be able to trade him to a team with a need at catcher for an even better third baseman.

Indians name Carlos Santana the starting third baseman
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Indians have named Carlos Santana the team's starting third baseman, according to MLB.com.

Santana was competing with Lonnie Chisenhall during camp, but has won the job. Santana will not be used in a platoon with Chisenhall. Instead, he will be the full-time starter. Santana will also serve as the club's backup catcher. 

Santana hit .268/.377/.455 in 541 at-bats last year.
