Cleveland Indians should consider Carlos Santana at third base

Don’t adjust your computer screens folks, you definitely just read that correctly. The Cleveland Indians should start looking at Carlos Santana at the hot corner.

This move may not make sense on the surface, and that’s understandable. Santana has been one of the Tribe’s best players in 2019 so why mess with a good thing? But there’s real baseball logic to this move, I promise.

With the injuries to Jose Ramirez and Jason Kipnis, the Tribe is faced using two of Mike Freeman, Yu Chang, Ryan Flaherty, and Andrew Velazquez every single day between second and third base.
