The Streamer Report: Thursday's Starting Pitcher Targets

Rich Schultz

Ray Guilfoyle offers his streaming starting pitcher selections for Thursday's games.

The Streamer Report provides you with daily streaming starting pitcher selections everyday for those who like to stream starting pitchers in their fantasy leagues. The report will identify starting pitchers who are owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues, and who have a decent track record vs their opponent.

Before I get to Thursday's streamers, here is how my selections for Tuesday's games fared:

Kevin Slowey vs Mets - 8 IP, 4 H, ER, 0 BB, 8 K, ND

Jose Quintana vs Rangers - 5 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, BB, 2K, ND

Brandon Maurer vs Orioles - 4 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2K, L

Combined stats: 17 IP, 18 H, 9 ER, 3 BB, 12 K, L, 4.76 ERA, 1.24 WHIP

And now for my streamer picks for Thursday's games:

Kyle Kendrick vs Marlins

Kendrick is owned in 22.7% of ESPN leagues, and if he continues to be the Philles best starter, that ownership percentage will increase. in 19 career appearances vs the Marlins, 14 of them starts, Kendrick is 10-2 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.306 WHIP. He has given up 2 runs or less in each of his last four starts, and owns a 2.41 ERA and 1.10 WHIP this season.

Justin Grimm vs White Sox

Grimm is owned in just 9.4% of ESPN leagues, but has pitched well in his last two starts for the Rangers. Grimm has pitched well in his three outings this season, giving up just 3 earned runs in 17 innings with a 15-4 strikeout to walk rate.

Travis Wood vs Padres

Wood is owned in 24.1% of ESPN leagues, but is a solid play on Thursday vs the Padres. Wood has given up two runs or less in each of his five starts this season, going 6 innings or more in each as well.

Make sure you check out the Streamer Sweet Spot, published by Brian Creagh, where he identifies teams that have trouble scoring runs and strike out a lot. You can find his article here.

Reminder: feel free to ask questions here or in the Roto Roundup, whether they relate to streamer decisions, trade offers, keeper questions, etc.

Question for readers: should I publish this earlier in the day? If so, what time makes sense?
