News: Santiago agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.29 million with the Angels on Thursday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: Santiago posted solid numbers in 24 starts with the Angels in 2014, finishing with a 3.75 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He also struck out 108 over 127.1 innings, but walked at troubling 53. With Tyler Skaggs likely out for the 2015 season, Santiago could be a candidate for a back end of the rotation spot with a strong spring training.

News: Santiago agreed to a $2.29 million, one-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday, avoiding arbitration. The agreement is not guaranteed.
Impact: Santiago went 6-9 with 3.75 ERA last season, his first with the Angels after starting his career with the Chicago White Sox. He started a career-best 24 games for Los Angeles, but lost his rotation spot and endured a demotion to the minors after an 0-7 start. Although he didn't earn his first victory with the Angels until July 10, he reclaimed a rotation spot and finished the season fairly strong.
