When Carlos Santana was traded by the Dodgers to Cleveland last month, he was leading the 66ers and California League in RBI.
Recently, Stockton’s Chris Carter surpassed Santana as the league leader in RBI when he hit his 97th of the season.
When Santana was traded, he told me that a big regret wasn’t that he wasn’t going to lead the league in RBI, but it was that he hadn’t reached a big milestone: 100 RBI, with one team. He really wanted that 100 milestone in the Cal League, but had to settle for 96.
Entering play Wednesday, he was still leading all of the minors in RBI, with 103. WIth Kinston of the Single-A Carolina League, Santana is batting .367 with three home runs and seven RBI in 15 games.
