Angels' Hector Santiago takes no-decision against Rangers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/26/2015) Angels All-Star hurler Hector Santiago did not have a good outing against the Rangers on Saturday. The left-hander allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out four, needing 97 pitches--58 strikes--to get through the five frames. 

Santiago gave up an early run in the top of the first, courteous of a Rougned Odor home run. But the Angels were able to rally for four runs in the first three frames. The Rangers came back and tied the game with two in the fourth and one in the fifth. Santiago left the game with the score tied 4-4, but the Rangers would ultimately score three times in the eighth to win the game 7-6.

Even with the rough outing on Saturday, Santiago still owns a 2.27 ERA over his past eight starts.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

With the win, Santiago improved to 7-4 on the season with a solid 2.30 ERA. He has 108 strikeouts and 35 walks in 113 1/3 innings this year.

Angels set post-break rotation; decisions still need to be made


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/16/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has partially laid out his rotation plans for the start of the second half. Lefty C.J. Wilson will get the first start out of the All-Star break, as he'll open up the weekend series against the Red Sox on Friday.

Garrett Richards and 2015 All-Star Hector Santiago will go on Saturday and Sunday respectively. 

Meanwhile, the futures for Andrew Heaney, Matt Shoemaker and Jered Weaver are rather unclear. Scioscia said Heaney will get another start.

Angels SP Hector Santiago rides offensive explosion in win Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/5/2015) Backed by a 13-run offensive explosion on Saturday, Angels starter Hector Santiago earned his fifth win of the season. Santiago fired seven shutout innings against the Rangers, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out three. 

Santiago (5-4) was pretty much in control of this one throughout, as he did not allow a runner to get passed second base.

"He had really good life on his fastball," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said, per The Orange County Register. "He moved it around, mixed in a couple changeups, a couple breaking balls, really pitched ahead in the count most of the night."

His 2.40 ERA ranks fourth in the American League. He has four consecutive quality starts, and hasn't allowed more than three runs in an outing since June 3.


Angels SP Hector Santiago earns no-decision after quality start


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Santiago gave up just three hits in his seven innings of work, giving up one run while striking out six batters. But he continued his season-long pattern of no-decisions, with five of his last six outings ending up with the pitcher without a mark on his ledger. 

Santiago, who hasn't won since May 29, is 4-4 with a 2.58 ERA.

Angels P Hector Santiago delivers quality out of bullpen Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/6/2015) Pitcher Hector Santiago was an Angel out of the bullpen for the Angels on Saturday. Santiago was called into relief duty in the second inning with the Angels down 7-0 to the Yankees.

Santiago, who was pitching on two-days rest, twirled 3 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, allowing two hits and striking out three. He lowered his season ERA to 2.55.

With a couple of scheduled off-days coming up, the Angels already planned on pushing Santiago's next start back to Friday, so it wasn't a surprise to see him come out of the bullpen. Still, it was a solid performance to help save some of the other relief corps in the Angels' bullpen.


Angels alter rotation for pitchers Matt Shoemaker, Hector Santiago


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has altered his rotation for the next few games. With two off-days scheduled over the coming week, Scioscia was able to give some his pitchers some extra rest.

Right-hander Matt Shoemaker will now start on Tuesday against the Rays, and Hector Santiago will go next Friday against the A's, according to the Los Angeles Times

Shoemaker hasn't started since Sunday and will go six games in between starts. Santiago, who pitched five innings on Wednesday, is also slated to get six days off.

Scioscia had already indicated that Shoemaker could be available out of the bullpen. It is not known if Santiago could also pitch in relief if needed.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago didn't factor into the decision on Wednesday, giving up five earned runs on five hits and two walks in five-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 6-5, 10-inning loss to the Rays.

Santiago cruised through five innings but hit a wall in the sixth, hitting a batter before serving up a two-run home run to Joey Butler. He then allowed a single and a walk before surrendering his second homer of the inning to Steven Souza and being removed from the game immediately after.

Santiago owns a 2.69 ERA and 60:27 K:BB ratio in 67 innings. He's slated to face the Rays again on Monday in Tampa.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago took the loss on Sunday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Red Sox.

Santiago (3-3) threw a whopping 124 pitches in the outing. He gave up a two-run home run in the second inning but limited the Red Sox to just an RBI sacrifice fly before his exit to earn a quality start.

"I think they lost the leash," Santiago said to the Orange County Register. "That's good. Shows a lot of confidence in me, going out there and trying to prove myself."

Santiago owns a 2.47 ERA and 50:22 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers on Friday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Santiago allowed a leadoff home run to Josh Donaldson in the first inning, but settled down and did not have another issue until the fifth. Santiago allowed the leadoff hitter to reach on a throwing error, who then scored on a sacrifice fly.

"Santiago was really good," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "He was picking the plate apart pretty good, he was pounding that inside corner and he was painting it pretty good."

Santiago, now 3-2, moved his ERA to 2.25 in 48 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Red Sox.


Angels' Hector Santiago strikes out eight in no-decision


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels P Hector Santiago allows one hit during Thursday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago did not allow a run and only gave up one hit during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Astros.

Santiago was pulled after 6 1/3 innings of work. Santiago's biggest miscues were two balks he surrendered. By balking twice, Santiago became the fourth pitcher since 1914 to pitch at least five innings and have more balks (2) than hits allowed (1), according to the Orange County Register.

Santiago struck out five batters and walked four during Thursday's start. He was able to lower his ERA to 2.57, but he received a no-decision for his effort. Santiago has now allowed one earned run or less in four of his six starts this season.

His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Rockies. 


Luck runs out Saturday for Angels lefty Hector Santiago


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Angels left-hander Hector Santiago was a little lucky in allowing 10 baserunners in his last start against Texas and allowing just one run in a no-decision.

His luck ran out Saturday against the Giants.

Santiago gave up nine hits and two walks in five innings. The result was four runs and a record that fell to 2-2. He fanned four along the way.

His trouble began in the second with three singles, including a two-run job for Nori Aoki. Santiago then surrendered a solo home run to Brandon Crawford in the fourth and run-scoring single to Casey McGehee in the fifth. A pinch-hitter in the sixth ended his afternoon.

Santiago will seek a bounce-back Thursday against Houston.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) With Matt Shoemaker scheduled to start Monday and Hector Santiago on Tuesday, it appears as if Angels pitcher Garrett Richards will be in line to start Sunday against the Astros, reports MLB.com.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Angels left-hander Hector Santiago bounced back from a mediocre first start to post a strong one Wednesday and earn his first victory of the season.

He rolled the rest of the way, allowing just one run on four hits in seven innings while walking two and striking out five. His lone mistake was deposited over the fence by Carlos Corporan in the fifth inning.

He will try to make it two straight next Monday against visiting Oakland.
