Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)

With not many streamer options for the day, we are going to go a bit risky here. Elieser Hernandez hasn’t been the best this season but his 17.6 K-BB% in his last three starts ain’t bad. The main reason I picked Elieser is because of the opponent. He is taking on Arizona at home. Arizona really just takes advantage of left-handed pitchers which Hernandez is not and they also have one of the worst wRC+ in the last seven days. Cross your fingers!

Our backup option would be Madison Bumgarner. His underlying numbers aren’t great and sometimes Miami can hit but Bumgarner has been hot on the surface so why not ride the hot hand? What is also intriguing here is the fact that Miami struggles big time against left-handed pitchers, on the season they have a super high 30.3% strikeout rate.

Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)

If Elieser is gone and you are in a deep league it looks like Kyle Bradish is a decent option. He pitched well in his first outing and I think the strikeouts could shine through in this start against the Twins. The Twins are a good offense though so this will be a good test.

Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)

A solid option for shallower leagues would be Corey Kluber against the Athletics. Kluber has a solid strikeout rate in his last three starts and he also holds a 3.06 SIERA meaning he is pitching pretty well. We all know the Athletics aren’t the best offensively so he obviously gets an easy matchup here.
