Matt Andriese, Charlie Morton and More Streaming Options for Tuesday, 5/9/17

New, comment

Matt Andriese looks to continue the same success from his last start on Tuesday.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue Jays John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

There are a ton of solid streaming options going into Tuesday. Antonio Senzatela makes for interesting option even though he is going up against the 2016 champs at Coors Field. Mariners’ rookie Ariel Miranda will look to grab a W against the rebuilding Phillies. The Yankees will throw out former Cy Young Award winner C.C. Sabathia against a weak Reds’ lineup and the list goes on and on. All the guys mentioned above just came up short on making it on the list, but do not be afraid to grab any of them off waivers for a spot start Tuesday.

Julio Urias vs. Pittsburgh Pirates (56.6% Owned)

2017: 10.2 IP, 0.84 ERA, 4.31 FIP, 4.22 K/9, 6.75 BB/9, 0.00 HR/9, .222 AVG

Career vs. Active Pirates: .300/.462/.400, 0 HR, 13 PA

Career @ Dodger Stadium: .267/.346/.339, 0 HR, 188 PA

Urias has yet to give up a home run this season, and this trend should continue as he pitches against a team with the second lowest amount of home runs this season. With Marte suspended and McCutchen’s 2016 struggles continuing into 2017, Urias and the Dodgers should come out on top against the struggling Pirates.

Matt Andriese vs. Kansas City Royals (20.1% Owned)

2017: 35 IP, 3.09 ERA, 4.63 FIP, 7.71 K/9, 3.34 BB/9, 1.54 HR/9, .241 AVG

Career vs. Active Royals: .200/.254/.218, 0 HR, 58 PA

Career @ Tropicana Field: .246/.288/.403, 18 HR, 537 PA

Andriese is coming off a start in which he went 7.0 innings without allowing a run. He should have a favorable match-up going into Tuesday as the Royals have been the worst offensive team this season by only hitting an OPS of .609. The fact that Andriese has also had success in the past against the Royals, and has pitched well in his home park make him a very valuable commodity Tuesday.

Charlie Morton vs. Atlanta Braves (25.1% Owned)

2017: 34.0 IP, 3.97 ERA, 3.09 FIP, 10.32 K/9, 2.65 BB/9, 0.79 HR/9, .259 AVG

Career vs. Active Braves: .340/.364/.426, 1 HR, 98 PA

Career @ Minute Maid Park: .293/.366/.450, 6 HR, 215 PA

We saw last week in Rob Parker’s article that Charlie Morton’s fastball velocity has gone up 3 mph since last year, and that added velocity may be the reason he has had so much success this year. Active Braves’ hitters have had a lot of success against Morton in the past, but now that he has added some more velocity to his fastball we could see a new trend on Tuesday. The Braves do have the ability to continually put the ball in play, but they do not have a lot of power as they have only hit 31 home runs this season. This lack of power is something Morton will look to take advantage of as he tries to grab a W away from his former club.

Ubaldo Jimenez vs. Washington Nationals (0.7% Owned)

2017: 26.0 IP, 6.58 ERA, 6.69 FIP, 6.23 K/9, 6.23 BB/9, 2.08 HR/9, .255 AVG

Career vs. Active Nationals: .262/.337/.424, 5 HR, 170 PA

Career @ Camden Yards: .264/.350.413, 29 HR, 1012 PA

The Nationals have been the hottest hitting team in baseball this season. They have a combined OPS of .849, and should keep up the hot streak on Tuesday. They are facing a pitcher who has been known to give up a home run or two, so look for the Nationals to come away with the W against the Orioles on Tuesday.
