2014 Fantasy Baseball: Weekend Starting Pitcher Streamers

Below I’ve listed several pitchers owned in fewer than 50 percent of ESPN fantasy baseball leagues who are scheduled to start sometime this weekend. These guys are widely available to stream and offer some upside for these starts.

Friday, July 18

Nathan Eovaldi vs. San Francisco – Eovaldi has seen his strikeout rate decrease every month this season, but his FIPs, by month, are: 2.20, 5.02, 3.21, 3.22. So without an even decent strikeout rate lately he’s pitched fairly well even though his ERA doesn’t show it. But he put together back to back quality starts to end the first half, and his start today is against the fifth worst offense against righties by wOBA.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week 15 Two-Start Pitchers and Streamers

There are almost 1,000 two-start pitchers this week, and while that number may be a bit on the high side it’s almost accurate. A lot of the double-dippers this week aren’t very attractive options, but several of them do offer some upside. I’ve tried to touch on a few of them below.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week 12 Two-Start Pitchers and Streamers

There are several two-start pitchers who qualify for the streaming portion of this article, starting with Tanner Roark, who’s listed as a must-start. For sake of brevity I’ll only cover them in the top portion of the article, but you should definitely pick up any of the two-starters you want to stream. If you have any questions about these starters, other pitchers or general fantasy baseball questions hit me up on Twitter @44AMiller.

Adam Wainwright was scheduled to make two starts this week, but due to a sore elbow he’ll miss his scheduled Monday start while planning on making his start Saturday. The move is “more precautionary than anything else,” according to St. Louis GM John Mozeliak. All along Wainwright has insisted he’s fine and is just battling tendinitis. The Cardinals haven’t named a starter for Monday’s game.

Mat Latos made his first start of the season Saturday and is scheduled to start Friday against Toronto. Gio Gonzalez is also scheduled to come off the DL soon, and while he hasn’t been officially listed as a starter on any day this week it’s most likely he’ll start Wednesday against Houston.

Gerrit Cole was scheduled for a two-start week, but news broke Saturday that he’s probably headed for the DL with shoulder fatigue. From what I’ve read it looks like Charlie Morton will start Monday and possibly get another start later in the week. If he does get two starts he’d fall into the deep-league starts tier here.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week 10 Two-Start Pitchers and Streamers

There are only a couple aces with two starts this week, and just a few guys right below the ‘ace’ label with multiple starts. However, there are several quality pitchers you should want to start in most leagues but a majority of them are owned in most leagues. The guys you can pick up to start are lower-tier options that aren’t very sexy picks so the pickings are slim this week for two-start streamers.
