Santana (elbow) threw from the pitcher's mound on Wednesday, the LA Times reports.
Spin: Santana threw about 45 pitches during a batting practice session. Santana will need to throw a few more times in the bullpen before beginning a rehab assignment and his return to the rotation remains unclear.

Santana threw 60 pitches over 4.2 IP for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Monday... Angels want Santana to throw 75-80 in his 2nd minor league start this weekend, barring any setbacks they are expecting he could be back in the rotation by the end of next week... So thats about a week from now, hopefully all goes well!

I assume most owners would want to watch his first start to see how he's doing anyway, and @ Texas gives everybody the perfect excuse.

Kelvim Escobar had a rehab start last night and pitched decently apparently. According to cbssportsline:

Escobar goes almost five in rehab: Angels SP Kelvim Escobar, who hasn't pitched since 2007 because of shoulder surgery, made his first rehab start for Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday. He pitched 4 2/3 innings, allowing one unearned run on one hit and one walk with four strikeouts.
(Updated 05/23/2009).

Fantasy Analysis
Escobar is eligible to come off the 60-day DL on June 4. The Angels are preparing him as a starter, but MLB.com suggests he might end up returning in relief. Most likely, the Angels will want his stuff in the rotation, and considering he was an 18-game winner when he last pitched in 2007, he's worth stashing in all Fantasy leagues.

Further analysis from Yahoo:

Escobar (shoulder) threw 59 pitches over 4.2 innings in a rehab start with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday.

Recommendation: Escobar only allowed one unearned run on one hit and a walk while striking out four. Escobar's fastball topped out at 95 mph, a sign that he's not having trouble trusting his arm. If Escobar suffers no further setbacks, he could be activated sometime in early June.
