Carlos Santana homered again Saturday but the Indians lost to the Royals.

Santana was the Indians' only consistent source of offense on Thursday, but they were only able to bring him around once -- to score the tying run in the ninth inning. The first baseman has had a nice turnaround after a sluggish start to the season, now slashing .218/.357/.400 with 15 home runs and 42 RBI.

Carlos Santana went 4-for-5 with a home run and nine total bases as the Indians cruised past the Twins 8-2 on Tuesday.

Santana had just three extra-base hits in his previous nine games, but the 28-year-old added two doubles to go with his 15th home run of the year. If anything, he deserved to have an even better night from a statistical standpoint -- the homer came with nobody on, and his other three hits drove in just one run combined. The four-hit evening raised his season line to .214/.353/.401.

Carlos Santana had a monster game Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, going 4-for-5 with a double, home run, two walks, two runs and two RBI.

We've been preaching patience from Santana owners all season, and the versatile slugger is finally making good. He came into June batting a horrific .159, but has turned his season around since missing nearly two weeks with post-concussion issues. Santana came into tonight slashing .333/.441/.632 this month. He's one of the hottest hitters in the game right now, and the buy-low window has officially slammed shut.

Since a stint on the seven-day concussion disabled list, Santana is hitting .343 (12-for-35) with two home runs and eight RBI. He seems to finally be pulling out of the slump that marked the first two months of his season.

Carlos Santana smacked a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

Santana got off to a miserable start this season, but he's hitting .300 (12-for-40) with three home runs and 11 RBI over his last 12 games. Of course, that's wrapped around a stint on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Either way, the window to buy low has likely closed.

Indians activated 3B/C Carlos Santana from the 7-day disabled list.

Carlos wound up missing nearly two weeks with post-concussion issues, but he's going through workouts this week with no issues. Although Santana has said he still wants to do some catching, the Indians figure to limit his time behind the plate following the concussion.
Jun 6 - 4:21 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that he expects Carlos Santana (concussion) to be activated on Friday.

Santana went through his normal pre-game routine on Tuesday and didn't experience any post-concussion symptoms. He's likely to see limited time behind the plate going forward. "There's some logical ways to get him in the lineup where we can play everybody," Francona said. "When Swish comes back, we're going to have to try to figure some things out, and part of that will be Carlos' role. And by that time, I'll have an opportunity to sit [and talk things over] with Carlos at length when he's not rehabbing."
