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 Thursday:
Dillon Gee vs Rockies - 7.2 IP, 8 H, ER, 0 BB, 3 K, W
Tyler Chatwood vs Mets -Chatwood was placed on the DL on Thursday
Bruce Chen vs Red Sox - 7.2 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, W
Combined stats: 15.1 IP, 13 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 2 W, 0.00 ERA, 0.85 WHIP
Felix Doubront vs Royals
Doubront is owned in just 17.1% of ESPN leagues, and should be owned in more. Doubront has pitched very well this season, going 8-5 with a 3.56 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. He has given up 3 runs or less in 15 straight games.
Chad Gaudin vs Orioles
Gaudin is owned in 20.2% of ESPN leagues and faces the Orioles on Saturday. Gaudin has pitched very well of late, giving up one run or less in six of his last seven starts, and two runs or less in eight of his last ten starts.
Wei-Yin Chen vs Giants
Yea, I am going with two pitchers facing each other. Chen has pitched well all season, owning a sub-3.00 ERA and a 1.1 WHIP to go with his 6-4 record.
