The Streamer Reports provides you with some streaming starting pitching options for Thursday's MLB games. The report will identify starting pitchers who are owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues.
Before getting to Thursday's action, I want to review how my streaming picks worked out on Tuesday:
Jason Vargas vs Twins - 3.1 IP, 9 hits, 5 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, L
Griffin and Wood pitched well, while Capuano showed he was not ready to be thrown in the rotation, and then injured his calf covering first base. I went back to the well with Vargas, and he got lit up by the Twins, whose bats have caught fire this week.
I will go with three young starters on Thursday, all pitching well early in the 2013 season.
McAllister has pitched well in his two starts this season, going 1-1 with a 2.19 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and a 9-0 strikeout to walk ratio.
Like McAllister, Corbin has pitched well in his first two starts of the season, going 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. In 12 innings thus far, he has induced 20 ground ball outs.
I assume Cingrani will get the call vs the Marlins on Thursday. He has dominated AAA thus far in 2013, striking out 26 and walking just one in 14.1 innings.
