If you think Tribe catcher Carlos Santana spends more time rolling around behind the plate after getting hit with foul tips than actually catching pitches, Santana would agree with you.
Last week in Seattle, Santana was down on all fours behind the plate after getting hit by a foul tip. Indians manager Manny Acta went out to see how he was doing.
"Carlos asked me, 'Do all catchers get hit this much?' " said Acta with a smile. "I told him, 'Carlos, we've got a lot of sinkerballers on this staff.' "
Santana had a well-deserved day off Sunday.
