There were big expectations for Santana after his rookie year in 2014, when he hit .319 with a .353 OBP, seven triples, seven home runs and 20 stolen bases in 430 plate appearances over 110 games, including 62 starts in center field. He finished seventh in the balloting for American League Rookie of the Year.
But his average fell by more than 100 points the next season in 2015 and he hit .240 with two triples, two homers and a .279 OBP in 75 games (248 plate appearances) in 2016. Santana was on the opening-day roster this year for a third-consecutive season but hit just .200 (5-for-25) with one homer and one stolen base in 13 games and was recently designated for assignment.
Santana has played six different positions in the majors including 114 games in center field and 103 games at shortstop. He’s also got experience at both corner outfield positions, four games at second base and two at third base.
