Carlos Santana gets scheduled day off
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians third baseman Carlos Santana told reporters Monday he is fine and was not in the lineup against the Royals because it was a scheduled day off. Santana also said he's not bothered by a groin injury, which was reported last week as part of the reason for his slow start offensively.

Carlos Santana trying to work through slump
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians third baseman Carlos Santana is trying to work through a slump, according to MLB.com.

Santana is hitting just .153 through 59 at-bats, and hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo believes he's trying to do too much at the plate. "It just seems like he's trying to do too much," Van Burkleo said. "He went into that spell where he wasn't getting hits, and those 0-fers kind of pile up, and it kind of manifests."

Van Burkleo added that he is trying to get Santana to focus on one at-bat at a time. He praised Santana for his .333 on-base percentage, saying Santana finds a way to contribute even when he's not hitting well.

Carlos Santana hits first home run Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians third baseman Carlos Santana hit a home run Friday against the Blue Jays.

Santana only had one hit in the game, but made it count. In the sixth inning, he worked a six-pitch at-bat against Drew Hutchison. He took a 91 mph fastball out to right for a two-run shot. He finished the game 1 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI.

No worries about Carlos Santana
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Judging by my Twitter feed, Fantasy owners are at a breaking point with Carlos Santana, and I don't understand why.

Oh, I get that he's batting .157, and that's not good. But I don't think anyone who drafted him expected better than a .260 hitter. And I don't think anyone expected the route to .260 to be an even one from start to finish.

Just look at the way Santana's 2013 went. He had a month-long stretch beginning in early May in which he hit .169. He had a 13-game stretch a couple weeks later in which he hit .146 and a 14-game stretch in August in which he hit .115

He was the same player he is now -- or worse, actually -- off and on throughout last season and still ended up hitting a career-high .268. The only difference now is he's doing it when everyone's paying attention.

He's offered excuses, but he didn't just start bouncing around the diamond this year, and his groin isn't sore enough to require a day off. To me, those just make for better headlines than the most obvious one of all: That's baseball.

If I owned Santana, I'd stick with him and take solace in knowing that even at his worst, he's still able to reach base at a .350 clip. Most players can't say that.

Report: Groin ailment adding to misery for Carlos Santana
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Theories about the early-season struggles of embattled Indians cleanup hitter Carlos Santana have gone from the mental to the physical.

He had admitted that a position change that has him serving as the starting third baseman and backup catcher had affected him at the plate. It has since been revealed that he is dealing with a sore left groin, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Santana had his thigh wrapped after the Wednesday game in Detroit, but insisted on playing Thursday, when he experienced yet another 0 for 4. He has just one hit in his last 27 at-bats and just one RBI on the season.
