Carlos Santana playing through sore groin
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians infielder Carlos Santana went 0 for 4 as the team's designated hitter in the Indians' 3-2 win over the Tigers Wednesday. He said after the game that a sore groin has been affecting his hitting, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Santana has just one hit in 23 at-bats over his last six games to drop his line to .170/.361/.213. However, he has been able to draw 14 walks despite only eight of his batted balls falling for hits.

John Axford earns fifth save on chilly night
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians closer John Axford secured his fifth save of the season Wednesday, giving up just one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning in his team's 3-2 win over the Tigers.

Axford did a good job slamming the door on a night when the recorded game temperature was 41 degrees Fahrenheit, as neither side was likely interested in a drawn-out, extra-innings game. The Indians closer bounced back nicely after blowing a save opportunity in his last outing. He owns a 4.05 ERA and 8:6 K:BB ratio in 6 2/3 innings.

Zach McAllister pitches six one-run innings in win Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians pitcher Zach McAllister surrendered just one earned run on four hits and two walks in six innings while striking out four in his team's 3-2 win over the Tigers Wednesday.

McAllister (2-0) has posted strong starts in back-to-back outings after tossing seven shutout innings in his previous game. The only run he allowed Wednesday came on a groundout in the first inning, cruising through the rest of the outing before exiting after throwing 97 pitches. McAllister owns a 2.04 ERA and 15:6 K:BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Royals at home Monday.

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.
