    Santana went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 11-5 loss to the A's.

    Impact

    The 28-year-old utility player is now slashing .333/.351/.611 with two homers, seven runs, seven RBI and four steals in nine games since joining the Rangers. Rougned Odor (knee) could be back in action by the weekend, but Santana has done more than enough to stick on the roster once Odor comes off the IL.

    Santana went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Astros.

    Impact

    The switch hitter continues to make a good impression on Texas, slashing .278/.278/.611 in five games since his addition to the roster, although Friday's homer was his first. Even after Rougned Odor (knee) gets healthy and reclaims the starting second base job, Santana could well stick around in a utility role.

    News

    Santana had a second straight pre-game workout at first base Tuesday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    Santana has filled in at second base for the injured Rougned Odor (knee) and had three hits and three runs in his first six at-bats before going 0-for-4 on Tuesday. Despite not having played first base as a professional, his promising work while filling in at second base has the Rangers thinking about keeping him around when Odor returns.

    News

    Santana went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and two stolen bases in Monday's 12-7 win over the Angels.

    Impact

    Hitting second and playing second base, the 28-year-old supplied some instant offense for the Rangers. Santana figures to get consistent playing time while Rougned Odor (knee) is sidelined, an opportunity that could afford him some surprising fantasy value if he keeps seeing green lights on the bases.

    News

    Santana's contract was selected from Triple-A Nashville and he is starting at second base and hitting eighth Saturday against the A's.

    Impact

    Rougned Odor (right knee sprain) landed on the injured list and Santana joins the big-league infield in a corresponding move. Ronald Guzman (hamstring) is also on the injured list, causing Logan Forsythe to get starts at first base, so Santana may get fairly steady playing time in the short term. He hasn't been fantasy relevant in mixed leagues since 2014, although he could chip in some steals, likely with a very low batting average.
