.The Cleveland Indians are acquiring first baseman Carlos Santana from the Mariners and first baseman Jake Bauers from the Rays on Thursday in a three-team swap. The Tribe shipped designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion to Seattle and infielder Yandy Diaz to the Rays. The Tribe now has a surplus of DH/first base types, although Bauers could move permanently to the outfield. Santana is a switch-hitter that can either DH or play first. He hit just .229 in his lone season with the Phillies but had a .352 on-base percentage, 24 home runs and 86 RBI. Although he's not the most attractive first base power type, he's a little more attractive going back to Cleveland in a solid lineup. He's most valuable in OBP leagues. Bauers hit .201/.316/.384 with 11 home runs, 48 RBI and six steals in his rookie season and will be a nice late-round target as corner infield depth. The trade of Diaz might signal that Jose Ramirez will return to the hot corner in 2019, with Jason Kipnis starting at the keystone.
