Another day with a tough slate as we either have questionable pitchers with good matchups or good pitchers with tough matchups. It’s also a small slate for a Tuesday likely due to the number of Aces going. I think the back end of the week has better options but if you feel the need to stream today you certainly can.
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
Brad Keller takes on a Texas Rangers offense that relies on free-swinging and where they hope to connect with the ball. When they do connect they hit the ball hard but the good thing with Keller is he knows how to induce weak contact. So far this season Keller has pitched 31 innings with a 1.74 ERA and 3.02 xERA. His ground ball rate of 51.1% will definitely help him in this matchup.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
With Brad Keller being rostered in 27% of leagues we have to look elsewhere for our deep league streamer. While I don’t advise doing this, Martin Perez is a nice upside play. Perez has strung together some nice starts and he takes on a Royals offense that honestly isn’t very good at all. It’s a tough start to swallow but it could work out for you.
If Taylor Hearn is gone another backup option could be Reid Detmers. We continue to wait for him to perform since he has nasty breaking stuff but it just hasn’t happened. I wouldn’t suggest doing this but at least you are taking someone with strikeout upside.
