Streamer Report: Friday's Streaming Pitcher Options

New, comments

Ray highlights some starting pitcher options that you should consider streaming on Friday, including Henderson Alvarez, Josh Beckett and Robbie Ross.

Marc Serota

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 leagues, and who either has a decent track record vs their opponent, has pitched well of late, or has a decent matchup.

Friday's Streamers

Henderson Alvarez, Marlins vs Mets

Alvarez is coming off a near perfect game in his last start, and for some reason is still available in 98% of leagues. I assume most leagues at 10-12 team leagues, but it doesn't hurt to stash a young pitcher on your bench in case he breaks out. In his two starts last season vs the Mets, Alvarez was 2-0 with a 1.26 ERA and a .196 batting average allowed.

Josh Beckett, Dodgers vs Rockies

Beckett is available in 92% of leagues right now and he gets the Rockies at home. The Rockies, as you know, hit far better at home than on the road, so Beckett is a solid play on Friday night. Beckett hasn't allowed a run in each of his last two starts, and owns an ERA of 2.57 and a WHIP of 1.14 in his 14 innings on the mound.

Robbie Ross, Rangers vs Mariners

Ross is available in 90% of leagues right now and he faces a Mariners team that is struggling to score runs of late. Ross is looking to rebound from a poor start vs the White Sox, and comes into Friday night's game with a respectable 2.31 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 23.1 innings.

Weekly Streamer Performance

I will be providing a status of how my picks have performed over the course of the season, and below you can find how my picks fared this week. Week 4 of the 2014 baseball season has been a struggle, as you can see what a few bad outings can do to your ERA and WHIP categories.
