Opening Day Streamers
Since most of the ace starting pitchers are pitching on Opening Day, the streaming options are pretty slim, but there are a few pitchers you can consider.
Jorge De La Rosa, COL vs Miami
De La Rosa is the Rockies opening day starter and is owned in just 3% of ESPN leagues at the moment. JDLR has a tasty Opening Day start vs the Marlins on the road, pitching in the spacious Marlins Park. Last season, he went 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA in two starts vs the Marlins.
McCarthy gets the Opening Day start for the Diamondbacks, and is owned in less than 1% of ESPN leagues right now. Despite pitching at home, McCarthy is a decent option, as he faces the Giants on Monday. Last season, McCarthy went 1-0 with a 3.21 ERA with a 12-2 strikeout to walk rate in two starts vs the Giants.
Nolasco gets the Opening Day start vs the White Sox tomorrow, and is owned in just 7% of ESPN leagues. Last season, Nolasco made one start vs the White Sox, giving up just one run on eight hits, six strikeouts and no walks in 7.2 innings, and I think he can have the same success on Monday.
