With an ERA of .167 versus the current Tigers batters, LA Angels Hector Santiago is a “must have” as your Daily Fantasy starting pitcher, or at least have him as the second fiddle.

Jimenez is 4-4 with a 4.21 ERA in 11 career starts against Kansas City. The Orioles are a +110 dog for all you bettors out there.
