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 Friday's games, let's take a look at how my picks fared on Wednesday:
Brandon Beachy vs Phillies - 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, W
Jorge De La Rosa vs Padres - 7 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, BB, 6 K, W
Ivan Nova vs Angels - 7.1 IP, 10 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, W
Jarred Cosart vs A's - 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, BB, 4 K
Combined stats: 26.1 IP, 27 H, 7 ER, 2 BB, 20 K, 3 W, 2.39 ERA, 1.10 WHIP
Nathan Eovaldi vs Giants
Eovaldi is owned in just 1.1% of ESPN leagues and faces the Giants who rank 28th in the majors in runs scored this season. Eovaldi is coming off his best start as a major leaguer where he limited a hot Braves lineup to just one hit and no runs over 7 innings.
Alex Wood vs Giants
Wood is also coming off his best start as a big leaguer where he shut out the Marlins on 2 hits and a walk over 6 innings of work. He owns an excellent 48-14 strikeout to walk rate in 45.1 innings thus far and should fare well on Friday night.
Wei-Yin Chen vs Rockies
Chen is owned in 26.2% of ESPN leagues and gets to face a struggling Rockies team who rank 28th in runs scored on the road. Chen has given up 3 runs or less in nine of his last ten starts.
Felix Doubront vs Yankees
Doubront is owned in 12.3% of ESPN leagues and faces division rival Yankees at home on Friday night. Doubront has pitched well this season and has given up three runs or less in each of his last ten starts.
