The Streamer Report: Friday's Starting Pitcher Targets

Ray Guilfoyle ranks starting pitchers for fantasy owners who like to stream starting pitchers.

USA TODAY Sports

This report identifies some starting pitchers who are owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues that you may want to grab off of your league waiver wire for a spot start on Friday. Beginning on Monday, I will include provide streamer selections for two days, instead of just the current day.

Here is how I fared on Thursdays streamer pitcher selections:

1. Jason Vargas - Loss

2, Jason Marquis - Loss

Record: 2-5-2 (W-L-ND)

Not a good start to the season, but things will get better.

Here are the starting pitchers I would stream on Friday. There are plenty of aces and near aces starting on Friday, so the picking are slim.

1. Mike Leake vs Pittsburgh

Leake travels to Pittsburgh to face a struggling Pirates lineup. Leake does not have a winning record in his career vs the Pirates at PNC Park, but owns a 2.68 ERA and 1.189 WHIP.

2. Ross Detwiler vs Atlanta

Detwiler owns a 2-1 career record with a 3.33 ERA vs the Braves. in 30 career starts at home, he has a 13-7 record with a 3.25 ERA.
