On this Sunday slate, there actually aren’t a ton of options overall. It seems like today is a day a lot of solid pitchers are on the mound which limits our possibilities. Not only that but there just aren’t any really good options at all besides our streamer of the day. Don’t stream today because this is a tough cookie.
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
So here we are, another day, another streamer against the Detroit Tigers. This time we are rolling with Tyler Wells, who ranks high in terms of stuff plus and who continues to pitch pretty well. In Wells’ last three starts he holds an 18.6 K-BB%, a 2.25 ERA, and a 3.69 SIERA. What’s excellent about Wells is he hasn’t walked a hitter in four starts leaving his walk rate on the season to be just 4.1%. Wells has pitched well this season and should continue to do so against the Tigers.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
Luckily Tyler Wells is only rostered in 3% of leagues making him viable to be our deep league pick. If he is gone though and you must stream someone else I think I would go with Martin Perez. Perez has been oddly good we all know it will likely come crumbling down. If you want to take a shot though, it makes sense to ride the hot hand.
Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)
Tyler Wells please!

NFBC Streaming Pick
This pick will be based on the NFBC Main Event (15-team league) and the pitcher must be under 15% rostered.
This week’s pick: Johnny Cueto @ KCR – with a double header I am going to take a shot and say they call him up for the spot start.
In last week’s NFBC pick we went with Jordan Lyles who had a two-start. He essentially had one great start and one mediocre start but either way, he got us a good amount of strikeouts and it ended up being a solid stream.
NFBC Streaming numbers: 32.2 IP 29 H 14 ER 13 BB 28 K 3.86 ERA 1.29 WHIP
