Summer is upon us. The balls will fly farther... let's stream some ground-ball pitchers.

Michael Fulmer vs TOR, @ NYY (44% owned ESPN)

Monday, June 6 & Sunday, June 12

He's been on this streamer report for three weeks in a row now. Not much to say, but pick this guy up and hold him. Fulmer is downright nasty. He is exactly what the Tiger's rotation needed, a plausible number 2.

Since May 21, Fulmer has put together three wins and has an ERA of 0.40 and WHIP of 0.58. I am the least bit scared of TOR offense in a big ballpark like Comerica and the Yanks just aren't the Bronx Bombers... Line up Fulmer this week and feel great about it. He's a stud.

Julio Urias vs COL (30% owned ESPN)

Tuesday, June 7

Let's be real; Urias is 100-fold better than what we've seen. He was challenged with two tough matchups both on the road to start his career. Additionally, he gave up a lot of weak hits in both of those games that just aren't going to fall every game. He will bounce back and this looks like a great time for it.

The Rox are not quite the same team on the road (wRC+ 87 vs at home wRC+ 100) and they definitely aren't good against LHP: ranked 24th in wRC+ on the season. Expect Urias to show his true colors this week in Los Angeles.

Archie Bradley vs TB (12% owned ESPN)

Wednesday, June 8

The Rays have the highest K% against RHP in the league, second only to the Brewers. Archie Bradley has a K% of 37.3 across his last two starts. It's a small sample, sure, but it's a great sign for the once-top-prospect. He's come around finally and striking out guys like we first expected he might when he was called up last year. I've watched both of his past two games and his stuff looks legit. He gets guys out with his superior FB and CH. He faces off against a Rays team has really cooled off from their hot start in May.

Eduardo Rodriguez @ MIN (35% owned ESPN)

Saturday, June 11

E-Rod gets an easier matchup this week against a Twins team that isn't hot enough to not stream against (Reds, Angels, Mariners are all hot teams that shouldn't be streamed against this week). He has pitched decently and the Sox are really high on the youngster. He has good mechanics and real nasty change up.

He will be making his third start of the year. He'll have an easier time with the Twins on the road against a Sano-less lineup.

Mike Leake @ PIT (46% owned ESPN)

Sunday, June 12

A low ceiling guy that gets it done isn't exactly what we are looking for in streaming but he's been pitching really well as of late and I like the match up. He has always had a great GB% and he's doing the same this year. Leake was 4-1 with a 2.85 ERA in the month of May and the Pirates have hit .225/.306/.394 over the past week. I think this division rivalry will be of the low-scoring variety. Leake has a great shot at another win next week.
