FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Danny Santana did everything asked of him as a rookie last season, and now he's looking forward to settling back to his natural position. Santana, 24, learned center field on the fly last year for the Twins, but he is playing exclusively at shortstop in Spring Training.
Santana, who signed with the Twins as an amateur free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2007, finished seventh in the American League's Rookie of the Year Award balloting. He batted .319 with 20 stolen bases, and he did so despite roaming all over the diamond as a rookie.
