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 Saturday's streamers, let's take a look at how my picks fared on Thursday:
Sonny Gray vs Astros - 8 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, BB, 9 K, W
Tyson Ross vs Mets - 7 IP, 5 H, ER, 0 BB, 8 K
Mark Buehrle vs Red Sox - 7 IP, 10 H, ER, 2 BB, 4 K, W
Combined stats: 22 IP, 16 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 21 K, 2 W, 0.82 ERA, 0.86 WHIP
Andrew Albers vs White Sox
Albers has yet to give up a run in his first two starts as a major leaguer, and he looks to continue his streak of scoreless innings vs the White Sox on Saturday night. He has given up just 7 base runners in his 17.1 innings thus far.
Jenrry Mejia vs Padres
Mejia is owned in just 2.9% of ESPN leagues and gets to pitch in the best pitchers park in baseball on Saturday night. Mejia hasn't given up more than three runs in any of his four starts this season, and will look to continue that on Saturday night in San Diego.
Martin Perez vs Mariners
Perez is owned in 13.9% of ESPN leagues and faces the Mariners on Saturday night in Texas. Perez is coming off a complete game vs the Astros where he gave up just one run on four hits. He has given up two runs or less in each of his last three starts.
Bud Norris vs Rockies
Norris is owned in a third of ESPN leagues and faces a Rockies team that ranks near the bottom in runs scored on the road this season. Norris has given up two runs or less in six of his last nine starts.
