Damn, these pitch limits are ruining our chances of getting a win! We will prevail! Our streamer of the week worked well as Zach Eflin pitched four innings allowing just two hits and had three strikeouts without giving up a run. It wasn’t an impressive start but it will work. Right now Eflin is a hold and someone you want to see how he performs in future matchups.
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
Luis Patiño is certainly an innings risk as well. He had a late start to Spring Training and has only reached 40 pitches in a start. If all goes well we could see him get to 70 pitches which means five innings.
Luis Patiño throws high heat and his fastball plus slider combination can be deadly. Both induced weak contact as well as whiffs last season. He has a ton of potential and I am hoping he can take a step forward towards becoming a future star.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
Luis Patiño is only 10% rostered making him our deep league option!
Dakota Hudson is your secondary option here. He won’t get you strikeouts but Hudson has always been great at limiting runs. He faces the Pirates and maybe he can do what Mikolas couldn’t.
Michael Wacha is also a decent option. The Tigers seem prone to striking out like last season and Wacha made some serious strides towards the end of last season. He put up a near 30% strikeout rate and if it carriers over this could be a sneaky good start.
Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)
Luis Patiño again!
Chris Flexen also wouldn’t be a terrible option against the Minnesota Twins. It certainly isn’t ideal but Flexen tends to have a high floor so it could work.
Ryan Yarbrough vs OAK Tylor Megill @ PHI
