Carlos Santana and the 30 Homer Plateau

Santana has already tied his career high in homers with 27 on the year.  In doing so, he tied his own record for the most home runs by a switch hitter by a Cleveland Indian in a single season.  But can he take his power to the next level?  After being mired in a terrible slump for the first half of the season, Santana has enjoyed somewhat of a breakout second half.  Grady Sizemore was the last Cleveland Indian to hit 30 home runs, doing so back in 2008.  Can Santana break the drought with a hot stretch in the last two weeks?
