Minnesota Twins: Who’s Hot and Who’s Not, Early May Edition
Danny Santana has Found Himself on the Verge of Being Demoted.
It seemed, for a while, that Paul Molitor wanted to stick with Danny Santana as long as possible. Still, unable to hit the baseball, Molitor has stopped using Santana half as much, and now many think he is on his way to AAA Rochester.
So far this season, Danny Santana’s slash line is .143/.182/.190 with no home-runs or RBI’s.
Danny Santana only has 3 hits in 21 at-bats so far this season.
While it was clear that Santana wasn’t going to be a huge piece of this Twins’ team, he definitely could’ve helped coming off the bench. It just hasn’t worked out for him. While he’s got limited at-bats, it’s hard to see much upside in the way he’s been playing thus far in 2017.
Maybe Danny Santana will get another chance before he’s demoted, maybe he won’t, but it seems inevitable that he won’t be in Minnesota much longer. He’ll have to work on some hitting skills in Rochester before getting another shot to make his name known.
