Carlos Santana, the Cleveland Indians‘ power-hitting first baseman, has been named a starter in the 2019 MLB All-Star Game. Santana won the starter’s election for AL first basemen earlier today. The “Vote ‘Los” campaign in Northeast Ohio yielded fruitful results.
Santana is having a prolific campaign in his return season to Cleveland. He boasts a .290 batting average this year and an OPS of .951. Over the last 30 days, he leads all AL first basemen in the batting average department, hitting .310. Also, in that same time span, he’s hit the second-most home runs among AL first basemen with nine.
This All-Star “break” is a busy one for Carlos. Two days ago, he agreed to participate in the Home Run Derby. Watching “Slamtana” hit long balls in the derby, as well as start in the All-Star game, will be a treat for the Cleveland fans.
