You knew this was coming, but it’s looking like it will take some more money to bring back Carlos Santana.
It has been known before this, but Carlos Santana’s declination of the qualifying offer was made official on Thursday. Should he be signed by another team, the Cleveland Indians will get an additional draft pick. But really, pay the man.
Speaking of potential draft picks, the Indians will get a pick in Competitive Round A in 2018 along with the Pirates, Orioles, Padres, Diamondbacks, Royals, Rockies, and Cardinals. The Tribe’s pick will be the 37th overall pick of the 2018 Amateur Draft.
