Twins shortstop Danny Santana struggling with errors early this year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins shortsotp Danny Santana picked up two more errors in Friday's game, bringing his total to eight so far this season. Santana, who moved to short full time this year, is second in the mjaors in errors this season.

"Those are the things we have got to clean up," general manager Terry Ryan said to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "Eventually you know that's going to get you and catch up to you. I think it's the concentration factor," Ryan said. "He needs to finish plays. Some of those are plays he certainly can and will and has made. At that position, it's vital that he finish plays."

Ryan is willing to wait and see to let the young player develop his defensive game more.

"He's a young kid, so we're going to give him that," Ryan said. "He's got limited experience at the major league level; we'll give him that. There's a process. There have been shortstops in the game that it took awhile. With all that put together, we're going to give him every benefit of the doubt."

Twins shortstop Danny Santana still figuring things out at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins shortstop Danny Santana hasn't provided the same pop at the plate in 2015 as he did a season ago. So far, Santana is hitting just .195 in 10 games this season after posting a .319 average in 2014 with 41 extra-base hits and 20 stolen bases in 101 games.

Manager Paul Molitor thinks Santana is just trying to do too much at the plate, according to MLB.com.

"Strikeouts are such a bigger part of the game and he's trying to fit the role of a good leadoff guy," Molitor said. "I'm not sure what that even is anymore. Obviously, you want the guy to get on base, score runs and be aggressive on the basepaths. But he knows doesn't walk a lot and is trying to improve that. And then he ends up pressing more. He tries to take pitches and then he's not doing well when he falls behind in the count. So it's kind of a catch-22 right now."

Danny Santana still Twins' leadoff man, despite day off on Sunday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Twins shortstop Danny Santana was out of the starting lineup on Sunday, but manager Paul Molitor gave him a vote of confidence. 

"I still like Danny at the top for the most part," Molitor said, per TwinCities.com. "I don't think I'm going to be changing that too much in the short term when he's playing. We're going to play that out for a while. I like him leading off."

Twins' Vargas, Santana tweaking swings from both sides of plate
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins switch hitters Kennys Vargas and Danny Santana are both working to calibrate their swings from both sides on a daily basis, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Wednesday. 

"I never feel 100 percent from both sides of the plate," said Vargas. "When my right side is good, my left is like 50 percent. It's never the same. I try to maintain both swings, but it's tough."

Vargas is hitting .400 (4 for 10) against left-handers and .091 (1 for 11) against right-handers this season. Santana is batting .250 (3 for 12) against right-handers and .167 (2 for 12) against southpaws.

"I never feel good from both sides," Santana said. "It's always better from one side than the other. Never the same."
