Carlos Santana - Can we get him back?

What would be a fair trade to bring Carlos Santana back to where he belongs? He could help solve our 1st base situation and platoon with A.J.

I am proposing Tim FedEx, Scott Van Slyke, Garret Gould, Alex Castellanos to Indians in return for Carlos Santana and sidearm reliever Joe Smith. I am deathly afraid of the Dodgers giving up on Jerry Sands and him becoming the next Paul Konerko.

Here is the contract status of Carlos Santana:
