The Tigers released LHP Hector Santiago.
Santiago struggled in 19 appearances between the Mets and White Sox last year. It would be a surprise if there was much interest in the 32-year-old right now.
Chicago White Sox left-hander Hector Santiago pitched well in a 6-5 loss to the Angels on Saturday. Santiago allowed two runs over 4 2/3 innings while striking out four and walking three.
Santiago served up two homers to his former team. The veteran has made two starts for the White Sox in August, allowing six earned runs over 9 1/3 innings.
Chicago White Sox left-hander Hector Santiago struggled in a 10-6 loss to the Tigers in the second game of a Tuesday doubleheader. Santiago allowed five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings of work while striking out five and walking two.
Santiago was making his first start of 2019. Overall, he has appeared in nine games, posting a 1-1 record, 7.11 ERA, 1.89 WHIP, and 11 strikeouts over 12 2/3 innings.
Hector Santiago pitched a quick, 1-2-3 inning in the 12th to nail down Chicago's 4-2 win over Kansas City.
He needed only 11 pitches to get the save and he's 2-for-2 on the year. However, he was the eighth pitcher of the game for Chicago, and has struggled all year. He should remain on the waiver wire.
Hector Santiago walked three and struck out one over 2/3 of an inning on Sunday.
He managed to not allow a run, though, which gives him four straight scoreless appearances. Santiago doesn't carry any fantasy value and shouldn't be rostered.
