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 Tuesday's games, here is how my streaming selections performed on Sunday:
Bronson Arroyo vs Mariners - 6 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, BB, 6 K, L
Jeremy Hefner vs Brewers - 7 IP, 2 H, ER, BB, 8 K, W
Combined stats: 13 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 14 K, W, L, 2.77 ERA, 0.69 WHIP
Tuesday's Pitching Streamers
Ricky Nolasco vs Diamondbacks
There is some uncertainty as to when Nolasco will make his first start as a member of the Dodgers rotation, but I think it will be on Tuesday vs the Diamondbacks. I see Chris Capuano losing his rotation spot as a result. Nolasco owns a 6-2 career record with a low 4.00 ERA vs the Diamondbacks, and has given up three runs or less in 13 of his 18 starts this season.
Dan Straily vs Pirates
Straily is owned in just 3.5% of ESPN leagues and faces off against Gerrit Cole and the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. Straily owns a 5-2 record with a 4.52 ERA and 1.15 WHIP, so he has been a bit up and down this season, but is coming off a seven inning shutout of the Cubs on July 4th.
Jhoulys Chacin vs Padres
Chacin is owned in 32.8% of ESPN leagues, and gets a Padres team that has struggled of late. Chacin is on a five game winning streak and has pitched well this season, considering he pitches half of his games in Coors Field. Chacin is 8-3 with a solid 3.74 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in his 16 starts this season.
Dillon Gee vs Giants
Gee is owned in 6.9% of ESPN leagues and faces a Giants team that seems to be missing something this season. Gee has pitched well in his last two starts, giving up two runs or less in six of his last seven starts, and I see that continuing on Tuesday night.
