Santana is another player who got off to a poor walk year start—he was hitting .209 with a .641 OPS on May 5—before rebounding to approach career norms. First base/DH types with games predicated on power haven't attained enormous contracts recently—Edwin Encarnacion got three years and $60 million from the Indians last year—but Santana is the best of this year's crop. In fact, the power-starved Red Sox might regret not signing Encarnacion to fill Big Papi's shoes, and might now turn to Santana.
