Streamer Report for Friday: Nathan Karns, Bartolo Colon, and Jason Hammel

Ray offers you some options for streaming starters for Friday's games, including Nathan Karns, Bartolo Colon, and Jason Hammel.

The Streamer Report provides you with daily starting 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

Nathan Karns, Rays vs Yankees

Karns is owned in less than 1% of leagues right now, but gets a good matchup vs an old Yankees team on Friday night. After struggling in his first start of the season, Karns was solid in start #2, limiting the Marlins to one run on 2 hits, 2 walks and 6 strikeouts in 7 innings, and I expect him to pitch effectively vs the Yankees.

Bartolo Colon, Mets vs Marlins

I am riding Colon for his third straight start, as he has yet to disapppoint in his first two starts. He is barely owned above 50%, so I will include him in today's Streamer report. He is 2-0 on the season, with a 2.77 ERA and 0.77 WHIP. Last season, Colon was 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA and a 12-1 strikeout to walk rate in two starts vs the Marlins.

Jason Hammel, Cubs vs Brewers

Hammel is owned in just over 10% of leagues right now, but has a good matchup vs the Brewers on Friday night. Last season, Hammel went 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 15-2 strikeout to walk rate in 14 innings over two starts.
