No he wasn’t.
First of all, he threw 14 innings. That isn’t any kind of a sample size to even really discuss.
Secondly, he had a mediocre K rate and a very lucky and unsustainable BABiP.
He was hardly dominant.
In all fairness, you have to consider that the entire 2020 season is a small sample size.
Playing really well for half of the season is an even smaller small sample size, so it doesn’t really mean that much.
However I do think that Santander is a very good player, our best all-around player, and, with all appropriate apologies to sports guy, I do think he is a core player unless we can trade him for a whole lot.
What is your definition? Which of these were core players for the Orioles?
Anyone else on the 2012-16 O’s you’d consider a core player?
