The Milwaukee Brewers may have given up on outfielder Domingo Santana too soon, and they are seeing what he's capable of firsthand on Friday. The new Seattle Mariners outfielder hit a bomb the other day, and in a spring game against his former club, the big slugger went deep again. Check this out:

Santana took Brewers right-hander Corbin Burnes deep to lead off the second inning, the second homer he allowed in his short spring outing.

This spring, Santana is hitting .714 (5-for-7) with two home runs and five RBI. It's an extremely small sample size and the games don't count, but Seattle has to be very encouraged with their new middle-of-the-order power hitter who is still only 26 years old.
So far, it looks like the Mariners have another outfield star on their hands to pair with Mitch Haniger.
