Last season, Carlos Santana hit right-handed pitching well at Class AAA Columbus (48-for-137, .350) and with the Indians (32-for-102, .314). He struggled against lefties, hitting a combined .196 (21-for-107).

The script has flipped for the catcher/first baseman this season. In 112 games with the Indians, he is hitting .298 against lefties (37-for-124) and .207 against righties (56-for-270).

"In spring training, he made an adjustment to help him hit against lefties," Indians manager Manny Acta said. "He's been more consistent at staying inside the ball as a right-handed batter. As a lefty, he's gotten a bit pull-happy."
