It’s a new day! We have some solid options for today with some pitchers facing weak opponents and others just showing some skill-set upside. We have three pitchers with a rating of 6.8 or higher and only a handful with 6.0 or under. Not a bad day to stream!
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
Our pick for today is Chris Archer. He has pitched…okay but the matchup of course is why we are picking him. He is taking on the Detroit Tigers who have a super-high whiff rate and low wRC+ in the last seven days. This makes him a solid streaming option and one that you can use with confidence.
Your backup option would be another matchup play, Chris Flexen. Flexen only has a 10.4 K-BB% in his last three starts but he takes on the Baltimore Orioles who have struggled to put up runs consistently. The good thing is he takes them on in Baltimore and that stadium is pretty pitcher-friendly.
Keegan Thompson is also an interesting option. In his last three appearances, he has a 25.0 K-BB% and a 2.63 SIERA. Unfortunately, he has a super tough matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals who make a ton of contact and don’t whiff often.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
Chris Archer is your pick but your backup option is Jordan Lyles. In his last three starts, Jordan Lyles holds a 21.5 K-BB% and 2.92 SIERA, both impressive numbers. Now the Mariners have been hot so this something has got to give.
Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)
Chris Archer works here as well.
Friday 6/3: JT Brubaker vs ARI
Saturday 6/4: Roansy Contreras vs ARI
Sunday 6/5: Nick Martinez @ MIL
