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 Sunday's games, let's take a look at how my picks fared on Friday. Can I get a do over? Ouch.
Nathan Eovaldi vs Giants - 3 IP, 12 H, 9 ER, BB, 3 K
Alex Wood vs Giants - 6.1 IP, 5 H, ER, 0 BB, 9 K
Wei-Yin Chen vs Rockies - 6.1 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, BB, 7 K
Felix Doubront vs Yankees - 4 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Combined stats: 19.2 IP, 30 H, 20 ER, 4 BB, 23 K, 9.15 ERA, 1.73 WHIP
Ricky Nolasco vs Phillies
Nolasco is owned in 35.5% of ESPN leagues and faces the Phillies on Sunday afternoon. Nolasco owns a 3.38 ERA in 3 starts vs the Phillies in 2013, and a 2.99 road ERA as well. Over the last three seasons, he owns a 3.42 ERA vs the Phillies in his seven starts.
Jhoulys Chacin vs Orioles
Chacin is also owned in 35.5% of ESPN leagues and while this pick may look questionable, Chacin has pitched very well of late. In fact, over his last ten starts, he has given up two runs or less in eight of those starts, and owns a 3.18 ERA and 1.19 on the season.
Wily Peralta vs Reds
Peralta is owned in just 6% of ESPN leagues but has pitched well since the beginning of July. In the first three months of the season, Peralta sported ERAs of 5.02, 7.71 and 4.33, but has pitched great in the months of July and August. He owns ERAs of 2.13 and 1.88 in July and August thus far and I see him pitching well again on Sunday.
