Phillies aggression leaves them at a crossroads
Carlos Santana is bringing his big bat and postseason experience to Philadelphia.
The Indians fall short in keeping first baseman Carlos Santana as he lands with the Phillies on a reported three year deal worth sixty million dollars according to Fanrag's Jon Heyman. It was clear that Cleveland wasn't going to be able to offer Santana this kind of contract, and after the first baseman declined the club's $17.4 million qualifying offer in November, it became apparent that he would be playing for a new team come 2018.
Philadelphia also traded shortstop Freddy Galvis to San Diego for minor league pitcher Enyel De Los Santos, and completed two-year deals with relievers Tommy Hunter ($18 million) and Pat Neshek ($16.5 million).
The 31-year-old Santana, who spent his first eight seasons in the league with Cleveland, hit.259 with an.818 OPS and 23 homers last season.
Who also just so happens to play first base. He'll get $60 million over three years.
At the time, he was still recovering from the Tribe's loss to the Cubs in the World Series.

Rockies: Colorado finalized $27 million, three-year contracts with right-hander Bryan Shaw and lefty Jake McGee, moves the Rockies hope will fortify their bullpen. Nephew Joe Lary says the Northport, Alabama, native died Wednesday night after being hospitalized in Tuscaloosa with pneumonia.
Lary pitched with the Tigers from 1954-64 and led the AL with 21 wins in 1956. He was a Gold Glove finalist this year. The two-time All-Star was nicknamed the "Yankee Killer" after going 27-10 against NY from 1955-61. They were not a good baseball team last year and probably won't be this year. Federal court documents show Rose's suit against John Dowd was dismissed Friday.
Rose, who is now 76, sued over Dowd's assertions on the radio in 2015 that Rose had committed statutory rape decades earlier. It's a move that feels somewhat similar to Jim Thome coming in 2004, although Santana certainly has a slighter profile than the future Hall of Famer.
