Lou Marson and Carlos Santana


The Twitter feed made an interesting point the other day, and that is that the contrast between Lou Marson's ability to throw out base stealers and Carlos Santana's shortfall in the same area might actually delay Santana's arrival in Cleveland.  Shapiro even made specific reference to the issue in his pre-game presser in Detroit before last night's game and, especially given our sputtering offense lately, I can only assume that if the Indians believed Carlos could even be marginal in the majors right now, they'd promote him. So this is obviously a bigger issue than I (and perhaps you too) had realized.

 Lou Marson is third in the ML's in CS right now, behind two much older more established catchers (one of whom has played many more games than Marson), so he's obviously been outstanding.  Just ask Brett Gardner.  Not having seen Santana play I have no idea how deficient he really is and I can't find fielding stats for the international league.  My question to those who've seen him play is, how big a deal is this deficiency (if there is one)?
