DateQuestionAnswer
2018-04-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which OF is most expendable or tradable in a 14 team weekly points format? Domingo Santana, Hicks, Haniger, CarGo, or Mazara? We start 3 OF and one UTIL and one OF may need to go.
(dylanrox from Des Moines)
It's CarGo for me. He just looks pretty much done. (Scott Delp)
2017-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Last one:) Christian Pache, Dakota Hudson and Jhailyn Ortiz..are you high on any of them?
(Accudart from VT)
Out of that group, I'm most acquainted (natch) with Jhailyn Ortiz, and I'm surprisingly high on him. After all the rumors that he was a bust or not really the kind of prospect that anyone would expect him to be, he hit the ground running for the Phillies, and reports from some of my friends who scout the minors a bit more than me are positive. Fangraphs' Eric Longenhagen has a Phillies background so he's on point in this regard and he sees him in the same way a lot of folks saw Domingo Santana back in the day. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-03-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)What is your outlook on Domingo Santana? Sleeper/someone to target?
(Craig from Rio)
Haha, well, do we ever have a podcast for you. Understandable, but we rarely miss an opportunity to jock Domingo Santana. The outlook has dimmed a little since 2016, now that he's a corner bat, and not a great one, but he still has a tremendous amount of potential, and should be receiving some of the same praise/consternation as the similar Michael Conforto. (Ben Murphy, Ian Lefkowitz and Jared Weiss)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Now that the Brewers have purged their most valuable assets from the major league roster, what is the next step in their rebuilding process? What opportunities do they have to improve their system, outside of draft or free agency?
(Peter from Phoenix)
One of the underrated pieces of Stearns' rebuilding job has been his accumulation of depth. Ryan Braun could be a hot commodity this winter -- though I think he stays -- while the Brewers will have some mid-rotation depth in the starting rotation. Guys like Jimmy Nelson, Junior Guerra, and Wily Peralta could be on the trade block. Domingo Santana could be surplus to requirements, too. The obvious trade pieces are gone, but Stearns has shown that he's willing to get creative and move controllable pieces to better the organization. I also think the Brewers need to make a larger investment in the international market. (J.P. Breen)
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which group of players will the Astros regret trading more? Dealing away Vincent Velasquez and Mark Appel or Brett Phillips, Domingo Santana, and Josh Hader?
(Okie from Muskogee)
The latter, which is weird to say, because I've been pretty slow to come on the Hader train. I have loved most of what Houston has done, but I think they're really going to come to regret that deal. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Brewers have a lot of MLB and near-MLB OF talent ... is it fair to say Braun and Santana are incumbents, with Liriano, M Reed, Broxton, Phillips, and Nieuwenheuis in the mix for the CF job and off-day OF at bats?
(Jimmy from TX)
I wouldn't project anything about Domingo Santana as "safe" -- he's high-risk, and could fall out of favor in a hurry. Those strikeouts are something. Cap'n Kirk wins a lot of fans in Spring Training every year, so him starting with a premium role doesn't surprise me. Phillips has to be coming, but needs to get full-time PA when it's his turn. I like the starters as Braun, Santana, and Liriano in CF with CK as the big backup, and Phillips as the guy to come up and start when someone can't hack it or gets injured long-term. (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-03-14 14:30:00 (link to chat)Keep 3 - Jackie Bradley Jr, Trayce Thompson, Aaron Hicks, Domingo Santana, Brett Phillips
(Paulie from Miami, FL)
Bradley, Philiips, and what the hell, Hicks. I don't love Santana and I don't see a clear path to playing time for Trayce. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)If we're just talking about hitting profiles, are Joc Pederson and Domingo Santana close to the same guy?
(holmesp2001 from St Louis)
Yikes. The strange thing about Pederson is that he didn't run at all really last year. I'm not putting those two in the same category, it's way too early to write off Pederson. (George Bissell)
2016-01-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)I feel like Domingo Santana and Michael Reed are more or less a wash defensively in right field. Santana has more power than Reed. But Reed doesn't strike out near as much, walks a lot, and has better speed on the bases. Am I crazy for thinking he could be the better MLB corner OF, in the mold of Nori Aoki?
(Mokajige from Sheboygan, WI)
Crazy? Nah. I don't agree, however. I think Reed profiles much better as a fourth outfielder, and Santana I still think has a chance to be a very good starter in right field, maybe even a middle of the order hitter someday even with the strikeouts. I've been a fan for a long time. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)What is your projection for Domingo Santana? I know many are concerned about his Zone Contact rates, but this is a guy that raked in the minors, and his profile seems somewhat similar to George Springer and even Kris Bryant who both have Zone Contact Rate concerns.
(holmesp2001 from St. Louis)
Probably a low batting average (.230) with a lot of home runs. George Springer's rookie year minus the hot start is probably a solid comp. I do wonder if they'll platoon Kirk Nieuwenhuis with Santana early to ease Santana into the role. (Mike Gianella)
2015-08-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What does Domingo Santana's future path to the Bigs look like now that he's joined the Brewer's organization?
(Paul from DC)
A good question. I think he's ready to play right now. I can't imagine why he wouldn't be a September call-up, and assuming he performs okay, I think he competes for a corner outfield job this spring. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)When (if ever) does Domingo Santana push himself into the very crowded Astro's outfield mix?
(Paul from DC)
Boy he was bad in his time with the Astros, but that was such a SSS. I think if he hits in Triple-A like he did last year he gets another shot, and it wouldn't shock me. There's talent there. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Domingo Santana? His first 20 PA's have been atrocious, but he did mash in AAA at a young age. Glass half-empty or full?
(Jim from St. Louis)
He's big, he's young and he hit at some point. So I'll say half full. (Ryan Parker)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Who will be better - Domingo Santana or Rymer Liriano?
(HONDO from Cheyenne, WY)
Santana has more upside in his bat but that brief stint was frightening, wasn't it? Considering there are major questions as to whether or not either will ever hit, I'd go with Liriano because at least the athleticism has a chance to stick and help out in some way. (Jeff Moore)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these K machines do you have high hopes for or do you see them all flaming out? Domingo Santana, Jake Lamb, Randal Grichuk, Steven Moya, Yorman Rodriguez. Will any of these guys have long careers as starters? Which has the highest upside and who will flame out?
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena, CA)
I can't say that I have high hopes for any of them because of the aforementioned strike out issues, but Lamb's are perhaps the most under control and he should be able to pop enough mistakes out of the park for third base. At least with a guy like Santana, he draws some walks to go with the strike outs. Can't say the same about Moya. Not sure that any of them end up being regulars for any extended period of time. (Jeff Moore)
2014-12-18 15:00:00 (link to chat)What are the odds these players have good careers? Jon Singleton, Domingo Santana, Chris Taylor, Yorman Rodriguez.
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena)
1/14, 1/16/, 1/9, 1/22, respectively (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Gabriel Guerrero and Domingo Santana? GG didn't make BP's top 50 or even honourable mention and Santana wasn't eligible. Is the top 50 extra strong this year? Are their strikeouts going to prevent them from being stars?
(hotstatrat / John Carter from beautiful Tuesday evening)
Guererro just isn't there yet. He's a really talented player that I know many on the BP team like, but he's not quite Top 50 material yet. I can see him entering into the discussion for the back of the Top 101 this off-season.

As for Santana, I think there are pretty big questions surrounding the hit tool and just how much of an impact bat he will have long term. I know people like him and with good reason, but liking him doesn't always equate to Top 50 or Top 101 status. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)having a hard time with good bench players on my team. Josh Harrison, Domingo Santana, Viciedo Willingham and Rios I have a present. I am looking at kike Hernandez Logan Morrison marwin Gonzalaz and Jnuior lake. what would be your call out of these guys for back up bench hitters in dynasty league points.
(OB1 from NYC)
Lake is a combo guy who will kill your average. Marwin has a ton of positional flexibility and can provide positive production a bit. LoMo is going to give you a low average and middling power. and Hernandez is a wild card. Wold advocate for Marwin, LoMo, Lake, then Hernandez. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hello Jeff: What do you think about Domingo Santana? Is there a good chance he gets called up after the all-star break, and can he contribute decent hitting numbers for the Astros? Long term, high ceiling type or more of a high floor type?
(howling wolf from Bethesda MD)
Yeah, I'd bet he sees the majors this seasons. He's going to hit for power and strike out a lot, which should make him feel right at home in the Astros lineup. He's not going to be a middle-of-the-order hitter, but bat him sixth, let him hit .250 with 25 home runs and call it a day. The Phillies sure would take that right now from their right fielder. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Domingo Santana?
(Jim from Houston)
People forget about him too much. Fantasy owners and Astros fans will have to take the bad with the good when watching Santana at the major-league level, but his power potential is legit and I think he'll hit enough for it to be usable power. If everything goes right, and I recognize that it rarely does, I do think the Nelson Cruz comparison is apt. If I dream, I could see a .250-.265 batting average and 25+ homers. (J.P. Breen)
2014-01-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm a bit surprised not to see both Vincent Velasquez and Lance McCullers off this list? Both had pretty good years and are expected to get better. Domingo Santana also should have a case as well. What made you not have them on the list?
(YP from Houston)
Other players offered a more convincing case. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to rank these OF for dynasty purposes: Phillip Ervin, Nick Williams, Raimel Tapia, Domingo Santana and Jorge Bonifacio.
(Connor from Dallas )
Wow, you hit on a lot of semi-under the radar guys I love here. Tapia, Williams, Santana, Bonifacio, Ervin. But I think it's fairly close all the way around except for Ervin. (Ben Carsley)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Domingo Santana? He's been young for the level, but hitters paradise...
(Doug from OH)
The power is legit and he is patient enough at the plate to get on base at a decent clip despite the strike outs. .250/.340/.460 is a realistic possibility and that's a nice player. (Jeff Moore)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has more impact potential between Rio Ruiz and Domingo Santana? What will each contribute at the major league level if the tools/skills turn into production?
(Kevin from Houston)
Santana. Not sure Ruiz can hit. (Jason Parks)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mr. Parks - thanks first & foremost for heading up BP's amazing prospect coverage. Your work is indespensible. I was hoping you could shed some light as to the relative lack of prospect love for Domingo Santana. The kid had a 900+ OPS last year as a 19 year-old at High-A & PECOTA hung the exact same three comps on him as Miguel Sano in the annual. What gives?
(David W from Atlanta)
Thanks. I think people fear the swing and miss in his game and how that will play against better pitching. He doesn't make a lot of contact. Honestly, I never look at PECOTA and I really don't care about those comps. They don't work for me. Santana is like Sano because of the big raw power, but he isn't on the same level as a prospect and I don't really like the comp. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Paul, good afternoon bigger impact next year for houston Domingo Santana (OF) or J.Villar (SS)? rate the 2nd half rotation impact: Sonny Gray ,Esmil Rodgers,S.Nolin and K.Zimmer
(JohnnyT from NJ)
I'll say Villar because of position and speed translating quicker. Rogers if he starts, Gray, Nolin and Zimm (not sure he makes MLB this year) (Paul Sporer)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Domingo Santana someone to be excited about?
(Dan from NYC)
Got my first look at him for three games this past weekend, and I'll see more throughout the year. I think so. He'll flash big raw power to all fields. The approach really isn't bad given his age. He's not afraid to shorten up here and there and go the other way, but he'll also get long at times and miss stuff in the zone. Decent runner for his size (he's a monster) who should be passable (but not great) in right field. Easy plus arm. Has first-division potential. (Jason Cole)
2012-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Domingo Santana? Does he garner Top-100 consideration? In High-A this year, he performed at essentially the same offensive level as George Springer, but was 3 years younger. Obviously, not much as much speed or defensive value as Springer.
(Adam from Houston)
I haven't started working on the top 100, but Santana has been getting positive reports all season, and I'm a big fan of the power potential. Lots to question as well, but he's made improvements and the raw juice in the bat is impressive. I'd take Santana over Springer. (Jason Parks)
2012-10-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Domingo Santana a top-50 guy for you?
(Lil' Sebastian from The Barn)
How is heaven treating you, Lil' Sebastian? We miss you here in Pawnee. Your funeral is still the only time I've ever seen Ron Swanson shed tears.

Santana isn't top 50, but he could sneak into the 75-100 range... haven't really thought about it much yet. (Bradley Ankrom)
2012-07-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rather have George Springer or Delino DeShields in a dynasty league? DeShields quietly putting up SBs.
(Joe from San Diego)
This is a toughy, and I'm glad the question was submitted prior to the chat because it gave me plenty of time to go back and forth on my answer. I'd probably take DeShields in a dynasty league due to his category dominance (75 SB) and position. He's also younger than Springer. Both have some serious boom/bust potential, but I'd gamble on DeShields. Trailing both, but interesting in his own right, is Springer's teammate Domingo Santana. His power comes at a cost, but not the worst dynasty stash option in his own right. (Josh Shepardson)
