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 Thursday's streamers, let's take a look at how my picks fared on Tuesday:
Henderson Alvarez vs Pirates - 7 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
Edwin Jackson vs Phillies - 5 IP, 10 H, 7 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, L
Tyler Chatwood vs Mets - Chatwood will start on Thursday
Wily Peralta vs Giants - 6.1 IP, 5 H, ER, BB, 6 K, W
Combined stats: 18.1 IP, 21 H, 11 ER, 3 BB, 14 K, 5.47 ERA, 1.33 WHIP
Dillon Gee vs Rockies
Gee is owned in 4.6% of ESPN leagues and faces the Rockies at home on Thursday. Gee has pitched well of late, giving up two runs or less in seven of his last ten starts, and one run or less in three of his last four starts.
Tyler Chatwood vs Mets
Chatwood is owned in 18.1% of ESPN leagues and has been a pleasant surprise this season. He is coming off his worst start of the season, but is currently 7-4 with a 3.15 ERA and 1.39 WHIP.
Bruce Chen vs Red Sox
Chen is owned in 6.3% of ESPN leagues and faces a solid Red Sox lineup on Thursday night. Chen has made just four starts this season, but has gone at least six innings, and given up two runs or less in each start. I see that continuing at home on Thursday.
