2017

2016

Santana began last season as Minnesota's starting shortstop, but struggled both at the plate (.541 OPS) and in the field (16 errors), resulting in a demotion to the minors in July. He bounced back to hit .322/.348/.500 at Triple-A in August before filling a minor bench role with the Twins in September. Santana hit .319 in 2014, but that seemed fluky even as it was happening. After Santana spent 2014 mostly in center field, the Twins were determined to move him back to shortstop, but he's graded out poorly at the position by nearly all defensive metrics the past two seasons. His future may be as a utility player and he'll likely compete for a bench role this spring. Santana offers speed for fantasy purposes and could bounce back as he's just 24, but he needs to make better contact and learn to draw walks to have any chance at finding a regular role.

2015

Santana made quite the impression with a blistering rookie season and may become a cornerstone of Minnesota's rebuilding effort. The Twins aggressively promoted Santana in May after just 24 games at Triple-A. Once in the majors, he was given a shot at the starting center field job despite never regularly playing the position, with the Twins desperate for production. Santana took advantage of the opportunity, hitting .328 in his first month, and never slowed down (.314/.346/.483 in the second half). He was erratic in the outfield as he learned the position, but he showed outstanding range, a product of his excellent speed. It's not clear if he'll remain in the outfield, as the Twins still gave him occasional starts at shortstop and are contemplating moving him there permanently this spring. Santana's got a strong arm and good quickness, but it's not clear if he has the consistency to hold the job given his many errors at the position in the minors (36 errors in 2013). However, his 34 games played at shortstop likely qualify him as a shortstop in most formats, increasing his fantasy value. It's not clear he can sustain his level of success at the plate given that he had a low walk rate (4.4%), a high BABIP (.407) and with his major league success exceeding anything he did in the minors. But it's also possible he's just coming into his own at age 23 and could improve. Wherever he plays in 2015, his infield eligibility and speed on the base paths will make him a top fantasy option at shortstop.

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.
