Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jason Vargas (armpit) will come off the disabled list and start against the New York Yankees Tuesday, Aug. 13. It's unclear who will be bumped out of the rotation as a result.

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 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.
