Carlos Santana could end up the Indians leadoff hitter in 2016. Terry Francona said this at a radio affiliate lunch yesterday. It always makes sense to have your best OBP guy getting the maximum number of ABs, but Jason Kipnis did so well in that role last year, I'd have a hard time moving him.
Things Matt has already covered
• The Milwaukee Brewers will be wearing these awesome uniforms as their alternates in 2016.
• The Mets made their Cespedes signing official.
• The Nationals signed Bronson Arroyo. You might be thinking "Gee, westbrook, it sure would be nice to know the details of that contract." Well, guess what? It's your lucky day:
Confirmed Arroyo to #nationals. A $2mil base in incentive laden deal if he makes team. Can earn up to $8 million if he makes 32 starts— Mark Sheldon (@m_sheldon) January 27, 2016
