Description: Indians' Carlos Santana went 0-for-3 again to drop his Spring Training batting average to .071.

Description: Indians' Carlos Santana went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the team's loss to the Reds on Tuesday.

He hit .159/.327/.301 in the first 50 games in 2014, but did record an .872 OPS from June until the end of the season.
