Meanwhile, Danny Santana keeps playing surprisingly well for Texas, If anything, his stats have gotten better in the past month.He homered again yesterday (his 17th of the year) and now is batting .325 with 49 RBI. Pretty darn impressive. He's also been pretty versatile, playing outfield and infield, with another stint at 1st base yesterday.
There was talk of the Rangers cashing in Danny Santana before the deadline, but I don't think anyone was buying -- he has a .403 BABIP, shades of his .405 mark with the Twins in 2014.
Remarkably, even though his power appears to be up significantly over 2014 (.271 ISO over .153), his wRC+ is only modestly better, 137 over 132. I guess league and park factors contribute to that, plus his K% has risen which neutralizes the high BABIP a little.
