News: Santiago was hammered in a loss against the Mariners on Tuesday, allowing four runs (including a home run) on five hits in 4.1 innings while striking out six batters. Impact: Santiago may have salvaged something, from a fantasy perspective, with his strikeout total Tuesday, but turned in his second consecutive underwhelming performance against the Mariners. The hard-throwing lefty looked strong out of the gate, pitching two scoreless innings to open the contest, but didn't stick around long after giving up four runs in the third. Santiago will likely always have the ability to strike hitters out, but he needs to do more than that to be considered anything other than a streaming option. He will try to turn things around in his next start Monday against the A's.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Mike Scoscia removed Santiago from Wednesday's contest against the Mariners after his back began to tighten up, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. Impact: Santiago was surprised that he was lifted after throwing just 83 pitches, but it looks like Scioscia pulled him as a precaution. Santiago maintains that although his back was feeling tight in the fifth inning, it was feeling better by the sixth. It's not clear whether this will be something that causes problems for Santiago going forward, but fantasy owners should keep an eye on it for the time being.(RotoWire, )

News: Santiago took the loss in his regular season debut with the Angels on Wednesday, allowing four runs on seven hits in five-plus innings pitched against the Mariners. Impact: Santiago was likely looking for a better result in his first outing as a member of the Halos, but pitched better than his line would indicate, as he struck out four batters, and allowed just one extra-base hit in his five-plus innings of work. The 26-year-old allowed 10 baserunners however, which facilitated his early exit, before a Mike Zunino three-run home run left him with four runs on the ledger. Santiago will try to rebound from the tough outing next week, when he will once again face the Mariners.(RotoWire, )

News: Santiago gave up four runs (including two home runs) on six hits in six innings Thursday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Impact: It was a disappointing way to end spring training for Santiago, who was coming off a rough start against the Diamondbacks' Triple-A squad in which he gave up six runs in five-plus innings. Santiago will nonetheless slide into the No. 4 spot in the Angels rotation to begin the season, and could be useful as a cheap option for strikeouts, as he notched an 8.4 K/9 in 23 starts in 2013.(RotoWire, )
