Santana is just another in the line of young super-star players getting their chance at the majors this season.
Santana had been playing in Triple-A this season where he posted a .316 average with 13 homeruns. Santana is a switch hitting catcher who reminds some people of Victor Martinez, another switch hitting catcher who played for the Indians.
Santana is the latest player to make his debut in what some are dubbing “prized prospect week” after Steven Strasburg, Mike Stanton, Mike Lincoln, Jose Tabata, and Jake Arrieta all made their debut’s this week. If you’re wondering why so many top prospects got called up to the majors this week, this is the earliest a player can start thie major league “clock” and not become a super two player giving them 4 years of arbitration instead of the standard 3.
