Once again, Cleveland Indians Manager Terry Francona is torn on what to do in left field.
Carlos Santana isn’t an option for Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday at Cleveland.
Francona was forced to start Santana, his regular designated hitter, twice in left at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, where Cleveland had to play under National League rules. Santana more than held his own in Games 3 and 5.
“I was really proud of him,” Francona said of Santana, who had played only four innings in left in his career before Game 5. “He’s come a long way. ... I’ll be glad that we can DH somebody, though.”
