I haven't seen any offical word of him getting called up but CBS has him down for starting tonights game against the Nats. What's your feeling on how he'll do the rest of the year? I watched him pitch against the White Sox when he threw a CG and the kid looks legit. Nasty nasty stuff. But is he only a short term call up like last time or is he here to stay? ;-D

Worth a shot while Escobar out, he should get 2-4 starts in. Then after Escobar comes back and hurts himself again, they'll call Santana back for the rest of the season.

I'll say Santana has a chance to pitch his way into the mix if he resembles the guy who dominated in his second big league start. That's a pretty big if...but if he does throw a pair of gems standing in for Escobar, the decision to send him back to Salt Lake gets a lot tougher!

Via Rotoworld:
Kelvim Escobar - S - Angels
Kelvim Escobar (elbow) expects his latest stint on the disabled list to be longer than a couple weeks.
By choosing not to have surgery on his injured elbow, Escobar is risking further damage down the road. However, he said he hopes to return around the All-Star break. ''I'm definitely going to need more than two weeks off, because we want to be very careful with this,'' Escobar said. ''It's going to take longer to get back out there, and if I have a setback I'll be out even longer. The last thing I want is to have surgery, but at that point, I'll have run out of options.'' Jun. 14 - 8:59 am et
Source: Los Angeles Times

Let's just say it's not looking real optimistic for Kelvim this summer. And by the time he gets back, who knows if another Ana — oops, L.A. — pitcher will be hurt (Byrd apparently got dinged last night).
Ultimately, of course, it'll come down to Santana living up to the promise ... but if he does, I don't see how the Angels will be able to demote him.

Note that Paul Byrd, while expecting to make his next start on schedule, now has a tender elbow. Given his unfortunate history of elbow problems, this is worth noting.

I think Santana's gonna be stickin' around this time.

Byrd, Byrd, Byrd is the word.

I am surprised that the angels were letting Kelvim pitch with bone chips/spur in the elbow (anyone know which one it was?)

Santana looked very sharp last night. I think he ran out of gas a bit in the end, but he was dominating up until then, and would have had his second win but for poor relief pitching.

the kid probably had a long emotional week. there were rumblings that he might get called up but the results from esco's MRI had to come back. so who knows what this ordeal and how to prepare for it took what kind of a toll on him.

but the kid did well....hopefully for your team, mine and the angels, he can keep this up.....
