Report: Angels' Richards, Freese expected to be tendered offers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/1/14) The Angels are expected to tender a contract offer to third baseman David Freese by Tuesday's deadline, according to the Los Angeles Times. Freese is expected to make $6.3 million in arbitration.
However, the team is not expected to tender an offer to infielder Gordon Beckham. The team would like to have Beckham back on the roster next season, but not for the $5 million he is projected to make in his third year of arbitration.
The Angels are also expected to tender offers to Garrett Richards, Kevin Jepsen, Hector Santiago, Fernando Salas and Collin Cowgill.
Hector Santiago tosses scoreless outing in win vs. A's
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/24/14) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago earned a win Wednesday, allowing three hits and two walks in 5 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out three in his team's 5-4 victory over the A's.
Santiago (6-9) closes the season on a high note after getiting blasted for six earned runs while recording only three outs in his previous outing. He entered September with a 3.28 ERA but finishes the regular season with a 3.81 mark to go with a 106:52 K:BB ratio in 125 1/3 innings. Santiago will presumably be a member of the team's postseason rotation.
Hector Santiago has disastrous outing vs. Rangers
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago turned in a disaster start Friday against the Rangers.
Santiago allowed seven runs, six earned, on seven hits over one inning. He did not record any walks or strikeouts during the contest. Leonys Martin singled to lead off the contest, and was driven in a single later in the inning. Jake Smolinski then belted a two-run shot, giving the Rangers a three-run lead. Things didn’t get any easier in the second inning. Santiago gave up four straight singles, plating two more runs. Santiago was pulled at that point, but was charged with two more runs.
With the loss, Santiago dropped to 5-9. He’ll take on the Athletics in his next start.
Hector Santiago yanked early
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/14/14) Angels starter Hector Santiago failed to record an out in the third inning of Sunday's 6-1 loss to Houston. Santiago (5-8) was yanked after allowing three runs on five hits and five walks in two-plus innings, though he did strike out four.
It was Santiago's first loss in 13 starts and three relief appearances since June 15. He gets the Rangers at home Friday.
Hector Santiago tosses five one-run innings in win Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/9/14) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago earned a win Tuesday, allowing one earned run on five hits and one walk in five innings while striking out two in his team's 9-3 victory over the Rangers.
Santiago (5-7) cruised through most of the outing but surrendered a solo home run in the fourth inning, giving him four straight starts with a home run allowed. He owns a 3.38 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 99:45 K:BB ratio in 117 innings. Santiago is scheduled to face the Astros Sunday.
|2014 summary: One of the two arms the Angels acquired (from two different teams) in the Mark Trumbo deal, Hector Santiago was supposed to be a fixture in the starting rotation, but after a handful of early hooks to begin the season, he found himself in the dreaded swingman role. Injuries eventually made him a full-time starter again, and he was better after his initial banishment, compiling a 3.21 ERA in 23 appearances, including 17 starts, but as an inefficient pitcher with a tendency to serve up the gopher ball, he never inspired much confidence in Fantasy.|
Playing time status: And now, he's without his most valuable attribute. Santiago didn't pitch in relief enough to retain relief pitcher eligibility, which was the only thing that made him relevant in Head-to-Head points leagues, where even a so-so starting pitcher can be just as productive as a closer.
2015 outlook: Santiago started 24 games last season and pitched less than six innings in 18 of them, so even if sticks in the starting rotation, he's going to struggle for wins, all while contributing a subpar WHIP and only so-so strikeout rate. He's not an embarrassment, but he has no redeeming qualities either, making him little more than an AL-only option on Draft Day.
