Need some streamer options for Thursday? Check out the Streamer Report daily.

The Streamer Report provides you with daily startng pitcher streaming selections for owners who prefer to stream starting pitchers on a daily basis. This report identifies starting pitchers who are owned in less than 50% of ESPN Yahoo leagues, and who either has a decent track record vs their opponent, has pitched well of late, or has a decent matchup.

Note: I don't actually play in any leagues on ESPN, so I am having a hard time accessing the ownership data, so while Ray is out I will be using Yahoo data.

Let's take a look at how my selections on Tuesday fared:

Zack Wheeler vs. MIA - 7 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, ND

Wei-Yin Chen vs. HOU - 7.1 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, W

Scott Kazmir vs. CHW - 5 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, ND

Dan Straily vs. TOR - 4.2 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, L

Total Stats: 24 IP, 25 H, 11 ER, 6 BB, 19 K, 4.125 ERA, 1.29 WHIP

Thursday's Selections

The matchups are pretty thin on Thursday, but there are a couple that I think are interesting:

Josh Johnson at LAA - He falls just below the 50% threshold on Yahoo, coming in at 49% at this point.That said, I'll take the shot against a lineup that has been struggling for a while now and hope for the best.

Garrett Richards vs. TOR - Not a great lineup matchup, but Richards has a 1.08 ERA and WHIP with 15 strikeouts in 16 innings in the last month. Remember, Joe Blanton could have made this start instead.

Joe Kelly vs. PIT - I don't love this matchup, but Kelly has also pitched well in the last month, with a 2.55 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 17+ innings pitched.
