Jason Kipnis Jerseys defense this year


Jason Kipnis Jerseys defense this year

Santana gets 2-day break after scary collision Indians manager Terry Francona did Andrew Miller Jerseys the one thing that he said makes Carlos Santana mad on Sunday. Francona kept the first baseman out of the starting lineup. "He likes to play," Francona said. "He's not even really that big on coming out in blowouts." For Sunday's game against Seattle, though, Santana was given the day off after a scare at first base in the fifth inning of Saturday's 11-4 win over the Mariners. While catching a throw from third baseman Giovanny Urshela, Santana had Francisco Lindor Jerseys his right arm bent back in a minor collision with Seattle's Jean Segura. Francona noted that Santana felt stiffness in his shoulder on Sunday morning, but X-rays came back clean. With a team off-day on Monday, Francona felt it was best to give Santana the two-day break, especially after the first baseman Cleveland Indians Jerseys remained in Saturday's game until being lifted Jason Kipnis Jerseys for a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning. "He's good," Francona said. "He tested out really well. Good strength. He'll get treatment all day [Sunday]. He'll come in tomorrow and get treated, but my guess is he'll probably play on Tuesday. He's doing fine. We made him go up and swing in the cage before we let him hit and, you saw it, his swings were pretty aggressive. So, that was good." In discussing Santana's status, Francona made a point to also praise the first baseman's Jason Kipnis Jerseys defense this year. Heading into Sunday's game, Santana led American League first basemen in Defensive Runs Saved (nine) and double plays started (15), and was tied for first in assists (90). His 4.8 UZR/150 ranked third among his AL positional peers. Those are the type of defensive statistics that could make Santana an unexpected contender for a Gold Glove this year. "His defense has been [great]. He's taken it to another level," Francona said. "He's proud of it, and he should be. I say it all the time, but I don't think people realize how athletic he is. As things have progressed and he's played more, he has taken a lot of pride in it and it's made a big difference. He's been really good over there." I want to buy one?
