Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago was expected to be bumped to the bullpen or Triple-A Salt Lake when SP C.J. Wilson (ankle) returns Saturday, Aug. 2. However, Santiago will remain in the rotation with SP Tyler Skaggs (forearm) hitting the 15-day disabled list Friday, Aug. 1.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (forearm) is likely headed to the 15-day disabled list with a left forearm strain. "The doctor said the UCL (ulnar collateral ligament) is fine," Skaggs said "At the moment, it's not looking bad. I have full range of motion, and the tests went well. We'll see tomorrow, though. It's not feeling too bad right now."
Fantasy Tip: Hector Santiago would take his spot in the rotation. He has depth value in AL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago will start against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, June 15.
Fantasy Tip: There's a good chance Santiago may only make a few starts in place of Tyler Skaggs. The matchup against the Bravos isn't a great one, either.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim recalled SP Hector Santiago from Triple-A Salt Lake Tuesday, June 10.
Fantasy Tip: Santiago will take the rotation spot of Tyler Skaggs (hamstring), who was put on the DL. Santiago was terrible in his rotation post to begin the year and didn't fare much better in the minors. Assuming Skaggs is able to make it back when he's eligible, Santiago may only have a couple starts to convince the Halos he belongs on the active roster.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) will land on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, and he won't make his start Tuesday, June 10.
Fantasy Tip: Hector Santiago will be called up to make the start in Skaggs' place. Santiago struggled in three starts with Triple-A Salt Lake, so don't expect him to suddenly turn things around now that he's back to starting in the majors. It could be a very short stay for him, too.
