The Mariners acquired Santana and cash considerations from the Royals on Monday in exchange for right-handed pitchers Wyatt Mills and William Fleming.
ANALYSIS
Santana had produced a below-average batting line in both 2020 and 2021 and looked to be set for his third straight subpar season this year, but a .357/.478/.554 run thus far in June has dragged his wRC+ up to 104. That's still a pretty uninspiring mark for a first baseman, but he should have a path to at least short-term playing time with Ty France out with a flexor strain. He could still start frequently as a designated hitter once France returns, but he's unlikely to be a particularly interesting fantasy option. The Royals called up top prospect Vinnie Pasquantino to take Santana's place on the roster and step in as Kansas City's everyday first baseman.

Carlos has 2 good minor leaguers nipping at his heels this year. He may be in danger of losing some playing time.

Rotoworld:

12.31: Carlos Santana (on Veecks) said he feels "100 percent" now after undergoing platelet-rich plasma treatment on his left quad. (Santana
battled a nagging quad issue the last few months of the season, which
contributed to an embarrassing .500 second-half OPS. It particularly
hindered him against right-handed pitching, and he finished the year
with a lowly .184/.309/.327 line versus righties. Santana is no given to
bounce back considering he also struggled in 2020 and will turn 36 in
April. That said, his track record would suggest he certainly should at
least be a little better, assuming health.)
