Spencer Howard didn’t work out as he lasted just two innings with two earned runs. He will be a start eventually and he is actually very intriguing. It’s a super small sample but he currently holds a 39.1 K% and 13.6 SwStr% in five innings. Howard has prospect pedigree and he averages about a 30% strikeout rate in the minors. I think he is well worth the stash in deep league because once he gets going maybe we see a breakout?

Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)

Today is not a good streaming day and I tried to warn ya’ll yesterday. If you must stream though, our best option is Michael Lorenzen against the Cleveland Guardians. Lorenzen has fared well so far this season with an 18.9 K-BB% and an 11.3 SwStr%. The Guardians have been a hot offense though and have a 140 wRC+ against right-handed pitchers right now. This is dangerous!

Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)

If you must go deeper than Michael Lorenzen, who is our deep league pick (14% rostered), you can take a look at Kyle Freeland on the road in Philadelphia. The Phillies will probably hit him pretty good but Freeland weirdly pitches well at times and it’s usually on the road. Maybe you get lucky?

Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)

When there is no one that I truly like for streaming I try to ride the hot hand. The hot hand for this slate is Merrill Kelly. Kelly is sporting an impressive 20.6 K-BB% and a 2.84 SIERA (ERA predictor). That’s all good and fun but he does take on the Dodgers. Good luck with this one!

Future Picks

Tuesday 4/26: Zach Eflin vs COL and Mitch Keller vs MIL – quite possibly the best streaming day I have ever seen.

Wednesday 4/27: Aaron Ashby @ PIT

Thursday 4/28: Jameson Taillon vs BAL

Friday 4/29: Tyler Anderson vs DET

Saturday 4/30: Justin Steele @ MIL

Sunday 5/1: Jordan Hicks vs ARI – streamer of the week
