Carlos Santana (3B/1B, CLE) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Values


BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~pick 170

ANALYSIS: Carlos Santana has been fairly consistent, and to some extent, you know what you are getting. Depending on your league and needs, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. If your league and roster construction require an upside play, then Santana would not be your guy. But if you needed a safe pick to complement your roster, he could fit well.

With Santana, you can reasonably expect around 25 homers with an average between .230 and .260 and about 170 runs + RBI. That line means he will likely produce around a 13th round value, where he finished last year. However, a big part of that ranking is due to the fact that he simply played nearly every game.

When looking at a per game basis and factoring in the lack of upside, he's a safer pick closer to 200 than 150, unless you are actively seeking a high floor, safe player. In OBP leagues, however, he receives a significant bump in rankings. Last year, he finished with a .229/24/82/86/2 line. That line, with a slight boost in average, is a reasonable projection for 2019 as well.
