Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said the team is considering several options for the starting pitcher Saturday, July 6, but has not considered recalling a pitcher from the minor leagues at this point. P Michael Roth could be an option to start because he was not listed as a reliever for the team's game Thursday, July 4.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tommy Hanson (forearm) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm. The Angels have recalled P Michael Roth from Double-A Arkansas to take Hanson's place on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Hanson just isn't going to carry mixed-league value this year, if ever again. It seems like he's going to need to make some major changes in order to stay healthy and adapt pitching-wise to whatever it is that allows him to remain that way. Mixed leaguers shouldn't feel compelled to keep him around. Roth has posted a 3.61 ERA in 10 games (eight starts) for the Travelers but is probably going to fill in as a reliever for now. Jerome Williams should stick in the rotation and may still be of use in AL-only leagues, and Garrett Richards seems like a decent bet to move into the rotation and would be worth monitoring in those formats.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim placed SP Tommy Hanson (personal) on the restricted list Friday, May 10, and recalled RP Michael Roth in a corresponding move. Hanson is still dealing with the death of his step brother.
Fantasy Tip: It's unknown how long Hanson will be out this time. If it's an extended absence, Garrett Richards makes the most sense to take Hanson's spot in the rotation. Richards struggled during his brief time in the rotation earlier this year, but he'll deserve a look in AL-only leagues if he gets another shot.
