2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Santana hit .297/.333/.386 last season for Double-A New Britain and may have put himself in position to reach the majors in 2014. Santana has good speed (30 stolen bases) and a strong arm, but he makes too many mistakes (36 errors) and doesn't draw walks. He doesn't strike out much and makes good contact, however. A strong start at Triple-A could see him called up for a utility role and the lack of top middle-infield prospects in the Twins organization could give him a shot at a larger role.
