While my Guitar gently walks
The Indians will be playing in an elimination game tomorrow and noted baseball columnist Mike Petriello has pegged Carlos Santana as a likely hero for the Indians.
Cleveland’s best bet for hitting CC Sabathia… is probably Carlos Santana. https://t.co/K0h2S4sc8B

I’ve been writing about Carlos Santana since he first appeared as a Dodger prospect in the rookie leagues and he has never failed to disappoint. He has had a very unique career as this table shows.
Only three players since 2011 have had at least 500 walks and 150 home runs.
Carlos Santana is one of them.
