News: Santiago held the Orioles in check for five innings Tuesday, as he did not allow a run and struck out two en route to a no decision. Impact: The underlying numbers may not be pretty, as Santiago walked more batters (3) than he struck out in the contest, but he did his job Tuesday, as he was able to keep the Orioles off the board for five innings. The 26-year-old has largely struggled in July, as evidenced by his 5.27 ERA in three games (two starts) prior to facing Baltimore, but will look to build on the positive momentum when he takes on the Tigers on Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Santiago picked up his second win of the season Friday, striking out two batters in 2.2 innings of relief against the Mariners. Impact: Santiago entered the marathon against the Mariners with one out in the top of the 14th inning and proceeded to throw scoreless baseball long enough to be able to pick up the victory. He was initially scheduled to start Tuesday against the Orioles but hasn't been formally announced after having to throw 38 pitches in the outing.(RotoWire, )

News: Santiago got more than enough support to earn his first win of the season Thursday as the Los Angeles Angels slugged their way to a 15-6 victory over Texas. Impact: Santiago (1-7, 4.50 ERA) allowed four runs and five hits while matching a season high with eight strikeouts. He had lost nine consecutive decisions since a 5-2 win over Minnesota on Aug. 18 while with the Chicago White Sox.(STATS, 6:12pm)

News: Santiago gave up four runs -- three earned -- and five hits over six innings in Thursday's 15-6 win at Texas to break a streak of 16 consecutive winless starts. He walked one and struck out eight. Impact: Santiago only got the nod Thursday because Matt Shoemaker had to fill in for an injured Jered Weaver (back) during Monday's start. Weaver is expected to make his scheduled start Saturday, so despite Santiago's nice performance, expect him to head to the bullpen when the Angels return from the All-Star break.(RotoWire, )
