Default Blue auto worth holding onto?

So I pulled this Ravel Santana-



Anyone have any intel on him? Is it worth holding onto?

Barely but I would.

Youre not gonna max out profit now where the set stands.

He's a Yankee..they always fare well closer to opening day.

Let the offseason moves transpire hopefully he may get some hype.

Good luck with your decision

He's still very young at age 20, has shown some success, but struggled a bit at A ball. I would see if someone could pay a good amount and if you're not satisfied with the offer, play it out and see how he does.

That sounds like a plan..his stats on the back of the card make him seem great..but then you look up what he did after his promotion to A ball, and it wasn't pretty. But, of course he's still young and that's a small sample size.

No dought that I would sell him now, while his low a success is still in everybody's mind and he is still in a yankee uniform...

put it one ebay as Bryce Harpers Best friend. I'm sure someone would buy into the hype and give a few hundred.

Wow, I never knew people still read the back of the cards for stats! That's so old-school dude!

I asked about him last week.


@Jaypers413 (IL): What was the word on Ravel Santana this year? Is his ceiling still "considerable" as you labeled it last year?

John Manuel: Sadly for him, no. I had several reports that essentially said, "This is not the same guy." His power and athleticism were his calling cards; while he still was athletic enough to play center field this year, I was told he'd lost at least one step if not more, and his power was nonexistent. The Yankees clearly expected more; he played CF and hit 4th or 5th most every day for Staten Island. Debating hard whether or not to rank him in the Top 30, frankly. As JJ Cooper and I talked about on the podcast the other day, he's one of the guys where scouts who had New York-Penn coverage said, "I thought he was supposed to be a guy but I didn't see anything like what you guys wrote." So that ankle injury obviously set him back a ways.

Haha...other than looking at the serial number of the card and for grading purposes, I rarely look at the back!
