santana's indians debut came in early april 1990 in the bronx against the yankees.  he went 0 for 2 with a gidp.  the indians decided shortly therafter that they were content with felix fermin at short as santana was released after appearing in just 7 games, all on the road i might add.  talk about never really feeling 'at home' with a club.  and that, as it turned out, was a career.

voici à vous, 1990 rafael santana!
