Slate Outlook

Welcome back everyone! Sorry about the day off, it was a hectic crazy day for me but I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend! Today’s slate is not one for someone who doesn’t have a strong stomach. This slate is like when you are watching the girl in the horror movie making all of the wrong moves but you aren’t sure if she will survive and while you know it likely ends with her demise you are still hoping she lives. In other words, don’t stream unless it is necessary because the next few days pose much better options.

Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)

Devin Smeltzer will be our streamer for today. I only have him with a 6.6 rating because I want to see more of him but he has pitched well this season. The strikeouts can be limited but he faces the Tigers so at least you know he will be facing a strikeout heavy offense. Overall Smeltzer has a 1.04 ERA in 17.1 innings so let’s hope his success continues.

Ryan Yarbough will be our backup pick for the day and it’s solely due to one reason, the Rangers have a high SwStr% lately. Yarbrough has been decent with a 12.5 K-BB% and 12.0 SwStr% but I don’t think he will provide ratios. This is why I like the high Rangers whiff rate, maybe Yarbrough will at least get you strikeouts.

Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)

Devin Smeltzer and Ryan Yarbrough work here.

If you need another option after them you can look at Humberto Castellanos who has been good besides his rough outing last time out against the Dodgers. or you can even look at Michael Wacha who has been mediocre but faces the Reds at home.
