Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in 1986, Carlos Santana made his Major League Baseball debut with the Cleveland Indians on June 11, 2010.

The right-handed first baseman/catcher/third baseman has played every game of his career with the Indians, and, as of the fall of 2014, remains on Cleveland's roster. He signed a five-year, $21 million contract extension with the Indians in 2012. The team has an option on him heading into the 2016 season. Through the 2014 season, Santana has a career batting average of .248 to go along with 569 hits, close to 100 home runs, and 336 runs batted in. Santana played internationally for the Dominican Republic, earning a gold medal at the 2013 World Baseball Classic in San Francisco.
