Angels | Hector Santiago wants to throw more screwballs

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 12:31:29 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago said he wants to throw his screwball more this season, even though he's much more comfortable with his other three pitches. He's been throwing it frequently for strikes this spring.

Angels | Could go with deep bullpen

Wed, 05 Mar 2014 12:13:56 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said that the team could open the year with eight relief pitchers, signaling the fact that he's not confident that a youth-filled rotation will be able to go deep into games early on. SPs Garrett Richards, Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs haven't thrown more than 158 innings in any of the past three years. RP Joe Blanton would benefit from such a move, since he'd likely be released if he doesn't make the team.

Angels | Garrett Richards, Hector Santiago locks for rotation

Tue, 11 Feb 2014 15:51:07 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SPs Garrett Richards and Hector Santiago are virtual locks for the starting rotation this year, but SP Tyler Skaggs will have to prove he's worthy of a spot this spring. If not, the Halos will look to SPs Joe Blanton or Mark Mulder as a stopgap until he's ready. "But our season doesn't hinge on whether or not Tyler Skaggs is able to make the staff out of Spring Training and become a star on a dime," general manager Jerry Dipoto added. "We're going to give him the proper time to adjust."

White Sox | Adam Eaton acquired

Tue, 10 Dec 2013 12:23:27 -0800

The Chicago White Sox acquired OF Adam Eaton from the Arizona Diamondbacks as part of a three-team trade Tuesday, Dec. 10. The White Sox sent SP Hector Santiago to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Angels also acquired SP Tyler Skaggs from the Diamondbacks in exchange for OF Mark Trumbo.

Fantasy Tip: First and foremost, the trade of Santiago likely means Chris Sale isn't going anywhere. Eaton is a high-energy type that should fit nicely in the outfield alongside Avisail Garcia and Dayan Viciedo. Eaton gains some intrigue moving to U.S. Cellular Field, a place that will help what's left of his limited power stroke.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs, Hector Santiago acquired

Tue, 10 Dec 2013 12:19:09 -0800

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim acquired SP Tyler Skaggs from the Arizona Diamondbacks and SP Hector Santiago from the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, Dec. 10. The Angels sent OF Mark Trumbo to the Diamondbacks and OF Adam Eaton was sent from Arizona to Chicago.

Fantasy Tip: The Halos were desperate for starting rotation help, and Skaggs and Santiago should be expected to fill out the starting five for next year. Skaggs is still young and has time to develop, but his prospect hype may leave him a tad overrated. Santiago appears to be the better catch, as he's pitched much better as a starter than reliever. The move to a more friendly pitcher's environment will help both, too.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo acquired in three-team trade

Tue, 10 Dec 2013 12:07:22 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired OF Mark Trumbo from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, Dec. 10, in a three-team deal that also sent OF Adam Eaton to the Chicago White Sox and SPs Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo's 30-homer power will play nicely in the desert, but he doesn't make enough contact to sustain a helpful batting average. It's feast or famine for him with his strikeout rate approaching 30 percent. His addition and the loss of Adam Eaton will allow Gerardo Parra to move into a starter role in center field.
