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 leagues, and who either has a decent track record vs their opponent, has pitched well of late, or has a decent matchup.

Jhoulys Chacin vs Dodgers - 5.2 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, W
Chris Archer vs Astros - 6 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K,

Saturday's Pitching Streamers
Stephen Fife vs Giants
Fife is owned in 11.8% of ESPN leagues and faces a Giants team that has struggled to score runs of late. Fife has pitched very well in his seven starts this season, going 3-2 with a 2.83 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. He has given up three runs or less in six of his seven starts thus far, and will look to continue that trend on Saturday night.
Nathan Eovaldi vs Cardinals
Eovaldi is owned in just 3.7% of ESPN leagues, and this might be a riskly choice with him pitching in St. Louis, but he has pitched very well in his three starts since coming off the DL. He is 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in his three starts, but I would like to see him strike out more batters than he has thus far. He has definitely taken a step in the right direction though.
Kyle Kendrick vs Braves
Kendrick is owned in 29.9% of ESPN leagues and faces the Braves on Saturday night. Kendrick has given up three runs or less in six of his last ten starts, and in 12 of his 17 starts overall.

Hefner is owned in 3.8% of ESPN leagues, and faces a Brewers team that is 20th in runs scored this season. Hefner is just 3-6 this season, but owns a 3.50 ERA and a solid 1.26 WHIP. He has given up two runs or less in each of his last six starts, and seven of his last eight.
