The Milwaukee Brewers have been open this off-season about a potential reunion with free agent first baseman Carlos Santana. Additionally MLB Insider Robert Murray reported shortly after the new year that the two sides had engaged in discussions. While no deal has been officially announced a video that he posted on his Instagram has gone viral and may have revealed his intentions for the 2024 season.
A viral video from the Instagram account of Carlos Santana may have revealed his intentions to play for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2024.
On Instagram Carlos Santana posted a video with some of his family and friends sharing a laugh. During the clip a Milwaukee Brewers city connect hat is seen. This ultimately may mean nothing, but the fact that those closest to the 37 year old veteran are continuing to wear Brew Crew gear is encouraging.

Assuming that Santana returns to Major League Baseball in 2024 it will mark his 15th season in the big leagues. He is still viewed as an elite defender in which he was a gold glove finalist at first base a season ago. Additionally he still hits well from both sides of the plate and outside of his rookie year in 2010 and the shortened 2020 season he has hit at least 18 home runs each season.
This winter the first base market isn’t particularly loaded with superstar players, but Carlos Santana finds himself among one of the best options available. Spotrac estimates his average annual value at $9.1 million, so he should see a good pay day once he ends up signing.
