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.
Before i get to the streaming options for this weekend's games, here is how my streaming selections performed on Thursday:
Friday's Pitching Streamers
Andrew Cashner vs Nationals - 2 IP, 5 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 0 K, L
Jorge De La Rosa vs Diamondbacks - 5.1 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, L

Monday's Pitching Streamers
Ross Detwiler vs Phillies Detwiler is owned in just 8.3% of ESPN leagues and faces the Phillies lineup that ranks 21st in runs scored and will be missing one of their better run producers in Ryan Howard, who landed on the DL on Saturday. Detwiler has pitched well of late, giving up three runs or less in eight of his last ten starts.
Detwiler was placed on the DL today, so I will substitute Phil Hughes vs the Royals instead.
Phil Hughes vs Royals
Hughes is owned in 24% of ESPN leagues and faces a resurgent Royals team on Monday night. Hughes is coming off two excellent performances over his last two starts vs the Rangers and Twins, where he gave up just three earned runs on 11 hits and 3 walks over 15 innings. I see him continuing his string of solid performances on Monday night.
Randall Delgado vs Dodgers
Delgado is owned in less than 1% of ESPN leagues and faces division rival Dodgers on Monday night. Delgado has pitched well of late, giving up two runs or less in three of his last four starts with a 25-4 strikeout to walk rate in 27 innings thus far.
