Angels | Hector Santiago tagged with loss

Wed, 25 May 2016 19:15:54 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago (3-3) allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits over 2 1/3 innings in a loss to the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 25, with two walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago has allowed four or more runs in three of his last four outings and should be viewed as a risky play in DFS. He will look to turn things around in his next start versus the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, May 31.

Angels | Hector Santiago ejected

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:46:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago was ejected in the third inning against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 20, because he was arguing ball and strikes. He allowed four runs on three hits in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two and walking three.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago has not allowed more than four earned runs in any of his starts this season but has allowed 10 home runs in nine starts, which is tied for sixth most among pitchers. He will be a risky option moving forward since he is scheduled to face the Texas Rangers in his next start.

Angels | Hector Santiago pitches a gem

Sun, 15 May 2016 18:27:31 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago allowed two hits while walking one and striking out five over eight scoreless innings in a win over the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago ended a bit of a down stretch with his best start of the season. Consistency is likely to remain an issue, but he is still a decent option in deeper mixed leagues and a potential matchup play in daily formats.

Angels | Hector Santiago not good in Milwaukee

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:42:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago failed to escape the sixth inning for a second consecutive start Wednesday, May 4, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He lasted 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on eight hits and four walks, while striking out four, en route to picking up the no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: One of Santiago's strengths in fantasy is his ability to get strikeouts. However, after logging seven or more K's in three of his first four starts, he's now compiled only five punch-outs in his last two assignments combined. Santiago was an All-Star last year, and still has a respectable 3.58 ERA, so he should get back on track at some point.

Angels | Hector Santiago suffers first loss

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 21:46:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago allowed four runs and a season-high eight hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss against the Texas Rangers Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago entered the game tied for sixth in the American League with a .179 opponent batting average, so chalk this one up as just a poor outing. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all formats and a tremendous DFS play.

Angels | Hector Santiago spins another tidy outing

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 05:59:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago allowed two runs on four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts during the Angel's 4-2 win over the Seattle Mariners Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago has 27 punchouts through 26 2/3 innings with a 2.70 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP to start the season. He is a solid end-of-the-rotation option for your fantasy club in all formats, especially because of his uptick in velocity, according to FanGraphs.com.

Angels | Hector Santiago attacking hitters

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 11:46:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago, who has gained some velocity this year, challenged the Chicago White Sox to hit his fastball in his start Monday, April 18. He threw 81 fastballs in seven innings and struck out 10 in his best major league performance. Santiago averaged 93.5 mph Monday, more than two mph better than in 2015. Santiago did power lifting in the offseason and lifts weights after his outings in order to build stamina to help him hold his velocity.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago, with his increased velocity, appears to have more of a bulldog mentality this year. That could both help and hurt him, depending on the day and the matchup. He could rack up more K's, which would make him slightly more attractive in deep mixed leagues. Santiago can also be prone to the long ball, so you may want to take a wait-and-see approach before investing in him.

Angels | Hector Santiago nearly untouchable

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 23:26:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago allowed just two hits with three walks over seven scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts Monday, April 18, against the Chicago White Sox. His 10 strikeouts matched a career high.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago is off to a hot start, posting 20 strikeouts over 20 2/3 innings with a 0.92 WHIP in three outings with two quality starts. He is a must-start fantasy option in AL-only play, and if he keeps pitching this way he'll be a great option in mixed formats as well.

Angels | Hector Santiago increasing velocity

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 10:48:51 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago said he has learned his delivery well enough that his velocity has increased while maintaining his control. His velocity is up two to four miles per hour in his first two starts this season, and he's thrown 65.5% strikes, which is up from 63.5% last year. Santiago's walk rate is also down from 9.2% to 5.5%.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago's increased velocity is encouraging, but it's such a small sample size that it bears watching for now. He fanned seven in his first outing but had only 3 K's and allowed four earned runs in Oakland in his second start. He should be watched in deep mixed leagues for now, and he can be effective as a spot starter, especially at home. He's risky tonight on the road against the Pale Hose, though.

Angels | Hector Santiago good in '16 debut

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 08:54:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago churned out a quality start in his first assignment of the season Thursday, April 7, versus the Texas Rangers. He went six innings, surrendering three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks, while striking out seven.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a very important start for Santiago, who was an All-Star just last year. He struggled mightily in the second half of 2015, but after an encouraging spring, it's very possible this gets him going to pitch like he did prior to last season's All-Star break, when he had a 2.33 ERA in 17 starts and one relief appearance. Consider him a speculative add for mixed leagues, with potential to be useful in standard formats.
