    Santana, the son of ex-big leaguer Rafael Santana, has a big body at 6-foot-4, 195 pounds and may outgrow shortstop. He definitely has the hands and footwork to have a chance to handle third base, however, and as a projectable, athletic frame. With more strength, Santana's bat could provide the power to profile at third base. He has solid bat speed but may needs some tweaks to his swing path to project to hit for more power. He's an average runner at best and speed doesn't figure to be part of his game.
