Slate Outlook

Happy Sunday everyone! Almost another week of baseball is gone but we still have a long way to go! In today’s slate, we have 13 starting pitchers as options. We have a red-hot Yusei Kikuchi on today’s slate as well as Wade Miley who just had a dominant performance against the Pirates. It’s a tough day but a lot of streams are needed on Sunday’s for head-to-head leagues so let’s dive in!

Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)

Our pick for today is Mr. Wade Miley. As we said in the introduction he dominated the Pirates in his last out. I know, that’s not entirely impressive but he takes on the Diamondbacks now who aren’t exactly that great offensively either. They have been better lately but against left-handed pitchers like Miley, they are in the bottom two in the league in terms of wRC+.

If Miley is not available things get a bit rough but I would take a shot with Alex Faedo. He has an okay matchup against the Guardian but what’s sneaky here is the strikeout upside. Faedo has a decent 12.8 SwStr% and sometimes the Guardians offense decides not to show up. Worst case, if he gets blown up at least some strikeouts could be there.

See Wade Miley and Alex Faedo.

Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)

The obvious pick of the day is Yusei Kikuchi. He has been on fire in his last three starts pitching 17.1 innings to the tune of a 1.56 ERA, 20.3 K-BB%, and 12.8 SwStr%. He takes on the Reds at home which will definitely help him plus the Reds get killed against left-handed pitching. On the year they have one of the highest strikeout rates when facing them as well as one of the lowest wRC+ in the league.
