Angels | Hector Santiago has another tidy outing

Sat, 30 May 2015 05:05:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago pitched 7 1/3 scoreless innings with seven strikeouts against the Detroit Tigers Friday, May 29. Manager Mike Scioscia was impressed, "That a great outing to pitch that deep against that lineup, with all the tough right-handed hitters they have."

Fantasy Tip: Currently sporting a measly 2.18 ERA, Santiago ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) might be in the beginning stages of a breakout campaign. He has a 1.17 WHIP and a 8.3 K/9, too. Seasonal owners will want to note his 3.84 FIP before cranking up their expectations too high, though. Still, those in need of a pitching boost could take a speculative leap of faith on Santiago.

Angels | Heavy workload for Hector Santiago

Sun, 24 May 2015 19:38:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago threw a career-high 124 pitches in a 6-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 24. He allowed three runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has allowed one earned run or less in six of his nine starts this season and has allowed more than three runs only once. However, he threw a ton of pitches Sunday, and you may want to avoid him in his next start to make sure he doesn't have any arm fatigue.

Angels | Hector Santiago struggling with 2 outs

Sat, 02 May 2015 13:50:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago has surrendered six of his nine total runs with two out in an inning.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is often considered on FantasyScore, in part due to his low price. Santiago is currently stranding an absurd 89.6% of base runners and striking out a career average 8.37 hitters per nine innings. The anomaly here can likely be chalked up to the fact that hitters are making contact on 77.3% of pitches Santiago throws out of the strikeout, compared to a career rate of 69.8%. FantasyScore owners should continue investing in Santiago whenever the matchup is right.

Angels | Hector Santiago likes facing A's

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 10:04:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago is 2-2 with a 1.99 ERA in 31 2/3 innings over seven career starts against the Oakland Athletics. Last year, Santiago was 1-0 with a 0.77 ERA in four starts against the A's. This year so far, he is 1-1 with a 2.92 ERA in two starts.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is off to a great start for the Angels, and he should be at least a midrange starter for tonight's games at FantasyScore. Don't put too much stock in his performance against the A's last year, since they are almost an entirely different squad in 2015.

Angels | Hector Santiago continues dominance over Texas

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:14:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago gave up just one run and four hits while striking out five and walking two in seven innings to beat the Texas Rangers Wednesday, April 15. He improved to 4-0 with a 2.15 ERA in five career starts at Texas.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) looked sharp against a Rangers team that is scuffling at the plate to begin the season, and injuries to their pitching staff haven't helped matters. They haven't had a consistent lineup, either, so any starter going up against the Rangers, even in Texas, should be attractive to FantasyScore users.

Angels | Garrett Richards to debut Sunday?

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:32:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (knee) is scheduled to make his season debut against the Houston Astros Sunday, April 19, if everything goes well with his final rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake Tuesday, April 14. That would push SP Matt Shoemaker to six days of rest for Monday, April 20, and SP Hector Santiago to five days of rest for Tuesday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Richards ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) looked good all spring and hasn't had any setbacks after having surgery on his knee last year. Despite making his first start Sunday, Richards will be attractive to FantasyScore users against an Astros squad that strikes out in bunches and hasn't gotten it going offensively in 2015 yet.

Angels | Jered Weaver targeted for opener

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 16:00:47 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver is being targeted by the team to start opening day against the Seattle Mariners Monday, April 6. The rest of the rotation is expected to be SPs C.J. Wilson, Matt Shoemaker and Hector Santiago, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) has been the team's expected opening day starter all along, so this shouldn't come as a big surprise. The Mariners should be even better offensively in 2015 with notable offseason acquisitions, but Weaver should be an acceptable FantasyScore pitching play on opening day.

Angels | Halos could use four-man rotation

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 11:37:25 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are expected to begin the regular season with a four-man starting rotation and an eight-man bullpen, according to manager Mike Scioscia. SPs Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Matt Shoemaker and Hector Santiago are expected to start the first four games of the season. The Angels will not need a fifth starter until April 14, but injured SP Garrett Richards (knee) is unlikely to be available by then.

Fantasy Tip: This means that SPs Andrew Heaney and Nick Tropeano will likely begin the year in the minors but one of them could be recalled to make the start April 14. Neither pitcher has much value in universal leagues, although Heaney has the bigger upside and could be worthy of consideration in the later rounds of AL-only drafts.
