Carlos Santana is off to an awful start this season. And things might be getting worse for him.

Santana was scratched from today’s lineup against the White Sox and Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer hears that the Indians aren’t sure whether he’s simply ill or dealing with a concussion. It’s an understandable concern, as he was hit in the mask by a foul tip while catching Sunday’s game against the Orioles. Santana had a previous stint on the concussion disabled list back in 2012, so they’ll play things safe with him for now.

Santana, 28, is batting just .159/.327/.301 with six home runs and 17 RBI through 51 games this season while making the transition to third base.

    Dear Indians:

    Release Giambi and sign a backup catcher. That’s all.

    Don’t need a backup catcher. Yan Gomes is doing just fine as the everyday backstop.
