Indians 2, Blue Jays 1 — Santana breaks skid with go-ahead HR

CLEVELAND: Carlos Santana temporarily broke out of a miserable slump to hit a go-ahead home run, but the Indians’ bullpen and defense quickly gave the lead back to Toronto and the Tribe’s bats came up short in the ninth inning in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays. Lonnie Chisenhall led off the bottom of the ninth with a double to left field against Blue Jays closer Sergio Santos. Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher then struck out before Jason Kipnis and Santana each walked to load the bases for Michael Brantley with two outs. Brantley hit a hard-hit ground ball to first baseman Edwin Encarnacion,...

Indians notes: Carlos Santana says move to 3B, playing multiple positions have played a part in offensive struggles

DETROIT — During spring training, Carlos Santana’s focus was on defense, as the converted third baseman adapted to a new position. Now, it’s on his offense or lack thereof. Santana, who entered Wednesday batting just .186 (8-for-43) with one RBI over his first 13 games, said prior to the series opener against Detroit that the Read More...The post Indians notes: Carlos Santana says move to 3B, playing multiple positions have played a part in offensive struggles appeared first on Chronicle-Telegram.Click here to read this story on The Chronicle-Telegram.Content copyright The...

Indians’ Carlos Santana excels in position transition, except at the plate

CHICAGO: Carlos Santana spent much of Sunday morning on the massage table or in the training room of the visitors’ clubhouse at U.S. Cellular Field and it was no wonder.On Saturday afternoon, Santana was the Indians’ starting catcher. Less than 15 hours earlier, he finished Friday night’s game at third base. On Thursday night he was the Tribe’s designated hitter, batting in his usual cleanup spot.Before he returned to designated hitter to rest his weary legs in the series finale, the physical demands of what Santana has done seemed to be wearing on the 27-year-old.“Yeah, it’s...

Indians revive old strategy with Yan Gomes signing

OAKLAND, Calif.: More than 20 years later, the Indians are copying the model of former General Manager John Hart and locking up young talent.The announcement of the signing of catcher Yan Gomes to a new six-year, $23 million deal with two more club option years gave the Indians 15 players under contract through 2016. Gomes, who wasn’t eligible for arbitration until 2015, will be in Cleveland through at least 2019 and perhaps 2021.Among those 15 are several key players age 27 or younger — left fielder Michael Brantley, third baseman/catcher Carlos Santana, right-handers Danny Salazar,...

Santana appears to have won Indians third base job; Chisenhall’s tenure could be short-lived

GOODYEAR, Ariz.: Indians manager Terry Francona slyly seemed to reveal his starting third baseman Tuesday, effectively ending a spring training battle between Carlos Santana and Lonnie Chisenhall.While Chisenhall was told Monday he had made the Tribe’s 25-man roster for Opening Day, Francona gave no details on how Chisenhall would be used. Santana started converting from catcher in winter ball because he didn’t want to be the Indians’ regular designated hitter this season.When that situation was brought up Tuesday, Francona said, “Carlos is going to play third.” Presumably that...
