    Following them both from their early years in the organization and into the minors he really is not like Guzman other than fielding and base running. He is a good speedy runner like Guzman. Speed close to Revere, maybe a notch less. Same great range but occasionally boneheaded erratic play. Santana's hit tool is excellent. He does make good contact. He does not take many balls and he does not strike out a lot. He swats at the ball and try to outrun it. Much better than Guzman there who did have more power and was pull (and K) happy resulting in low .200s BA

    Could he be a SS version of Revere? Or at least a poor man's version? If so, I think you'd have a valuable and exciting bottom of the order hitter/producer.

    That he could be with the bat. Just needs to be better about decision making on the field than he is right now because shortstops get many more balls their way than center fielders.
