4. Domingo Santana
Remember when Domingo Santana posted a 30-homer/15-steal/85-RBI season? 2017 was fun!
Santana was expected to play in a rotation with Ryan Braun, Yelich, and Cain in 2018, and ended up…going back to Triple-A. Santana slashed .265/.328/.412 in 85 games with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2018. He also spent 55 games back in Triple-A after he got off to an awful start.
Santana is only 26-years old, has legit power, and can handle a corner outfield spot. His value is lower than it was last year, but it’s not completely gone. Santana could also go in a package for the ace that David Stearns has been chasing for the past two years, or get flipped for assets that still need a few years before they arrive.
Another year of the ‘outfield rotation’ isn’t best for the Brewers or Santana. A trade made sense last year, and it makes even more sense this year, especially if the Brewers are looking to add to their 25-man roster.
