Santana, Phillies reach 3-year deal


The Philadelphia Phillies are wheeling and dealing.

The Indians fall short in keeping first baseman Carlos Santana as he lands with the Phillies on a reported three year deal worth sixty million dollars according to Fanrag's Jon Heyman.

The 31 year old has spent his entire big league career with the Indians and is the teams franchise leader in home runs and RBI's by a switch-hitter. He started as a catcher in 2010 and shifted to first base in 2015.

Santana, who has a.249 career batting average and.445 slugging percentage, is expected to play first base for Philadelphia. And he's a first baseman, Rhys Hoskins moving to the outfield?

Galvis was a finalist for a Gold Glove the past two seasons and hit a career-best 20 homers in 2016. For the Indians, they lose one of their longest tenured players. In three postseasons, Santana has a.213 batting average, four home runs, and eight RBI.

J.P. Crawford, a first-round pick in the 2013 amateur draft, will take over at shortstop.

Neshek began last season with the Phillies and made the National League All-Star team before being traded to the Colorado Rockies.

ANGELS: All-Star infielder Zack Cozart agreed to a $38 million, three-year contract with Los Angeles and is likely to shift from shortstop to third base.

Gold Glove victor Andrelton Simmons is at shortstop for the Angels.

Astros: Reliever Hector Rondon has agreed to an $8.5 million, two-year contract.

Upton was limited to 12 games last season at Triple-A Sacramento by thumb and shoulder injuries. Lobaton would get a $1.25 million, one-year contract if added to the 40-man roster.

The right-handed De Los Santos went 10-6 with a 3.78 ERA in 26 appearances (24 starts) at Double-A San Antonio last season.

Mets: New York agreed to a minor league contract with catcher Jose Lobaton.

Lobaton will report to big-league spring training and try to win a backup job behind Travis d'Arnaud. Across his Major League Baseball career, Santana's stats include a.249 batting average, 174 home runs, and 587 RBI.

He would join a rotation featuring 13-game victor Martin Perez and Cole Hamels, who won 11 games this year. It was clear that Cleveland wasn't going to be able to offer Santana this kind of contract, and after the first baseman declined the club's $17.4 million qualifying offer in November, it became apparent that he would be playing for a new team come 2018.
