Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver will start the club's first game after the All-Star break, followed by SP C.J. Wilson and SP Jerome Williams.
Fantasy Tip: The Halos open the second half at home against the pretty dangerous Oakland Athletics. The shine has worn off Williams since he first entered the rotation and pitched well, so he's not a smart start.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Joe Blanton will be skipped in the rotation this weekend. "We'll push him back a couple of days with (Thursday's) off day and see where he'll fold in," manager Mike Scioscia said. "We'll see how some guys come out of some starts and go from there." Blanton has allowed a major league-high 111 hits. Opponents have batted .332 against him.
SPs C.J. Wilson, Tommy Hanson and Jered Weaver will face the New York Yankees in a series that begins on Friday, June 14, in Anaheim. SP Jerome Williams started the series finale at the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday, June 12, and if he pitches well, there's a chance that he'll take Blanton's spot.
Fantasy Tip: This might be the best way for AL-only owners to salvage some value from the fifth spot in the Halos' rotation. Williams should be on the radar there again, and if he keeps pitching as well as he has, he'll be useful in deep mixed leagues, too.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jerome Williams was moved from the starting rotation to the bullpen, as manager Mike Scioscia elected to keep SPs Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Jason Vargas, Tommy Hanson and Joe Blanton as his starting five pitchers.
Fantasy Tip: Williams had recorded five straight quality starts, and was 3-2 with a 3.08 ERA as a starter. He will be used as a long-relief specialist, and Scioscia did not rule out a return to the rotation if the situation should arise. However, fantasy owners will want to drop him in all but the deepest of AL-only leagues and rotisserie formats, where he can still help in the ERA and WHIP categories.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia is using a six-man rotation through the end of the team's eight-game homestand, due to the recent returns of SPs Tommy Hanson and Jered Weaver. "I think right now is a good time for it," Scioscia said. "I think it helps the whole group if you can do it periodically. It's like throwing an off day in there."
