Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago will start the Cactus League spring opener Wednesday, March 2, against the San Francisco Giants. He is expected to throw no more than two or three innings and he will be followed by RPs Cam Bedrosian, A.J. Achter, Rob Rasmussen, Greg Mahle, Lucas Luetge, Kyle McGowin and Victor Alcantara.
Fantasy Tip: Santiago is not in the running to start the regular season opener, but the southpaw will be a valuable fantasy asset with a strong offense supporting him. He was 9-9 with a 3.59 ERA over 180 2/3 innings in 32 starts and one relief appearance in 2015, and he had 162 strikeouts in his first season as an All-Star. You can expect a progression toward double-digit wins this season, making him a solid middle rotation fantasy option in AL-only leagues, and a decent back-end option in mixed formats.

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right lat strain Friday, April 24, and recalled RP Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: With Iwakuma on the shelf, Roenis Elias would seem like the most logical choice to take his spot in the rotation. Elias finished with a 3.85 ERA last year, and if he is recalled, he could be worth a look at FantasyScore depending on the matchup.

Seattle Mariners RP Charlie Furbush likely will have a roster spot to open the year, as manager Lloyd McClendon wants two left-handed relievers. The other could be one of RPs Lucas Luetge, Rafael Perez or David Rollins. RPs Yoervis Medina, Danny Farquhar, Tom Wilhelmsen, Dominic Leone and Carson Smith will likely battle for the other four bullpen slots outside of RP Fernando Rodney. Ps Mark Lowe and Erasmo Ramirez are also options.
