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.

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed 3B Brett Lawrie (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of an oblique strain. The team also recalled RP Rob Rasmussen from Triple-A Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: Lawrie goes right back on the disabled list and could miss the rest of the month of August. Munenori Kawasaki and Danny Valencia could receive time at the position, but Juan Francisco could become the regular starter when Adam Lind returns to the lineup. Kawasaki and Valencia probably are short-term options in AL-only leagues while Francisco could help in some mixed leagues.

The Toronto Blue Jays recalled OF Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Buffalo, and optioned RP Rob Rasmussen to Triple-A Buffalo Saturday, June 28.
