Below are the three best streamers that I see for next week. I do love Zac Gallen but with the uncertainty of him staying in the lineup I sadly could not pick him. I also released an article this week displaying all the MLB team’s offenses, their underlying number and who is truly the worst. This is a great tool as you always want to stream against weak lineups. That can be seen here: How To Effectively Stream PitchersContinue reading →
In my last offering, I suggested using the Rays’ bulk reliever as a streaming option on Wednesday. Jalen Beeks got the call to follow Ryne Stanek as an opener. The outing wasn’t quite was I was expecting or hoping to see from Beeks. He went three shutout innings, allowing four hits but no walks and four strikeouts. He even picked up the win! So why was I disappointed? Well, I thought he could go further into games, maybe pitch five or so innings each outing, and get close to starting pitcher stats while picking up sneak wins. However, looking at his game logs, I see that he’s only gone over four innings twice so far in his usage as a follower. So, while he didn’t get the big outing that I had hoped for, he was still useful, especially in leagues that have start limits. I think he’s still worth using in this role in later opportunities. Now, on to the weekend starters!
