Fantasy Impact:

The right-hander could now miss more than just one start. His place in the rotation is expected to be taken by relief pitcher J.C. Ramirez. 28-year-old Ramirez led the Angels with 26 strikeouts in Spring Training but posted an ugly 5.48 ERA. Although he has thrown 131 1/3 big league innings, he has never started in the majors.
