Streamer Report: Thursday's Streaming Pitcher Options

Ray highlights some starting pitcher options that you should consider streaming on Thursday, including Ian Kennedy and Ubaldo Jimenez.

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Thursday's Streamers

Ian Kennedy, Padres vs Marlins

Kennedy is available in 62% of leagues right now and faces a Marlins team that is dominant at home, but very beatable on the road. Kennedy gets the Marlins in Petco on Thursday night so he should put up a nice effort for us. He has pitched to a 3.43 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and an excellent 44-9 strikeout to walk rate in 42 innings this season.

Ubaldo Jimenez, Orioles vs Rays

Jimenez is coming off his best start as an Oriole, shutting out the Twins on three hits over 7+ innings last week. I think he continues to pitch well vs the Rays on Thursday, as he shut them out over eight innings in his lone start vs the Rays last season.

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 6 is off to much better start than the previous two weeks. Let's see if going with two picks per day provides better results this week.
