Red Sox's Danny Santana: Leads off again

Santana started at first base, batted leadoff and went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's 8-3 loss to the Astros. Santana, who was held out of the previous two games, returned to the lineup Wednesday. This was the sixth time he's hit leadoff and the results have not been good. Santana is 2-for-24 with a .362 OPS atop Boston's lineup and has just one hit in his last 21 at-bats. The Red Sox continue to search for a leadoff replacement for Enrique Hernandez, who batted ninth Wednesday.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Sits again Thursday

Santana is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Astros, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. Now on the bench for the third time in four games, Santana appears to have lost hold of the near-everyday role he enjoyed for a brief period after being called up from Triple-A Worcester on May 21. The 30-year-old switch-hitter has mustered a lowly .116 batting average and .208 on-base average over his first 14 games with Boston, and his ongoing struggles could put him in danger of losing his spot on the roster. While Santana's multi-positional versatility is an asset, the Red Sox have three other players (Enrique Hernandez, Marwin Gonzalez and Christian Arroyo) capable of filling similar utility roles.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Stuck on bench again

Santana remains on the bench Tuesday against the Astros, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Santana hasn't started against a southpaw since making his season debut in late May. That trend will continue against Framber Valdez on Tuesday. Even while being protected from same-sided pitching, Santana has struggled at the plate, hitting just .125/.205/.325 in 13 games.

Red Sox's Danny Santana: Resting Monday

Santana is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Marlins, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Santana started and served as Boston's leadoff man in each of the past four games, going 1-for16. The veteran utility man has seen steady work for the Red Sox since being called up from Triple-A Worcester on May 21, but he's turned in a pedestrian .530 OPS through 44 plate appearances.
