Hector Santiago lasts only five frames in loss to A's
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher Hector Santiago lasted five innings Friday against the Athletics.

Santiago allowed two runs, one earned, on seven hits over five innings. He struck out five and walked two during the outing. Santiago gave up his first run against the first batter he faced. Coco Crisp hit a leadoff home run out to left center off Santiago in the first inning. He was able to get through the next three innings unscathed, but ran into trouble again in the fifth. On a fielder’s choice, a run wound up coming around on a throwing error by shortstop Erick Aybar. Santiago was able to get out of the inning, but was replaced to start the sixth. Santiago threw 98 pitches.

With the loss, Santiago dropped to 3-8. He’ll take on the Marlins in his next start.

Jump on the Matt Shoemaker bandwagon
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

I'm tired of playing the Matt Shoemaker skeptic. If nine starts aren't enough to tell us anything -- maybe not everything, but something -- then we might as well stop commenting on players midseason. Since that's not going to happen, I'm looking at what Shoemaker has done in his last nine -- a 2.54 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings -- and jumping on the bandwagon before it's too late.

So what if he was terrible in the minors? (And yes, he was terrible, getting stuck there until age 27 thanks to a 4.52 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in seven seasons.) So was Dallas Keuchel, and it didn't stop us from swimming to him like sharks to chum when he looked good in April and May. And for the most part, he's kept it up.

In Shoemaker's case, there were a few standout years in there -- most notably 2011, when he had a 3.15 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. You know what was so special about that year? It was the only one after 2009 when he spent any time anywhere other than the heavy-hitting California and Pacific Coast leagues. In 23 starts at Double-A Arkansas that year, he had a 2.48 ERA.

Of course, that doesn't explain why Shoemaker is so much more of a strikeout pitcher in the majors, and like Keuchel, I think he'll regress in that area a bit. But by now, I think he's proven his worth to Fantasy owners.

Grant Green beginning rehab assignment, with role unclear
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Angels infielder Grant Green is set to begin his minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake Friday, but he may not have a role waiting for him in the majors when he gets back from a back injury. According to MLB.com Friday, there may not be room for Green to play in the majors, given the acquisition of Gordon Beckham recently.

Green was not playing everyday before his injury, but it is not clear if there will be room for him on the roster before September expansion.

Jason Grilli picks up first save with new club
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher Jason Grilli picked up his first save since joining the club Thursday.

Grilli entered with a two-run lead, and slammed the door shut. He struck out the first batter he faced, and induced a flyout and a groundout to end the game. Huston Street was unavailable after pitching the past two days. It was Grilli's 12th save of the season, and first since becoming a member of the Angels.
