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.
Before I get into the streamers for this weekend's games, let's take a look at how my picks fared on Saturday:
Felix Doubront vs Royals - 4 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
Chad Gaudin vs Orioles - 5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 K
Wei-Yin Chen vs Giants - 6 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, BB, 2 K
Combined stats: 15 IP, 13 H, 6 ER, 8 BB, 11 K, 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP
Ricky Nolasco vs Mets
Nolasco is owned in 23.6% of ESPN leagues and faces the Mets on Monday night. Nolasco has pitched well this season, and over his last ten starts, he has given up three runs or less in nine of those starts.
Garrett Richards vs Yankees
Richards is owned in less than 1% of ESPN leagues, and faces the struggling Yankee lineup that ranks 28th in baseball in runs scored this season. Richards has pitched well of late, giving up just five earned runs over his last three starts.
Danny Salazar vs Twins
Salazar dominated the Tigers in his last start, striking out 10 while walking just one, although he gave up 4 earned runs on 7 hits over 7.2 innings. He should have an easier time vs the Twins on Monday night.
