Carlos Santana has been promoted to AA Akron and is in the lineup batting 6th on Sunday night for the Aeros.
Santanas promotion is a continuation of the Indians policy to challenge their top prospects by exposing them to the pressure of playoff baseball and gives Santana 2 games to get his feet wet at the AA level prior to the start of the post-season.

Got this from the Huntsville GM, Matt LaPorta's prior team before being dealt to the Indians in July. I figured some who read this site may be into the collectible thing or may know someone who is. Please pass this on, as it is for a good cause. And yes, his name is legit.
I don't know what the interest is in Cleveland, however we are in the middle of a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy...
