It’s Friday, have a drink on me! Especially after a successful streaming night that we are about to have! There are a ton of choices for today in terms of streamers. We have two options over 7.0 but unfortunately, they are highly rostered. For normal leagues, it looks like we will have to go with skill-set over matchup. I would rank today as a mediocre day to stream and I would only do this if you need it.
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
With so many pitchers you ould think at least someone decent would have a good matchup but nope! So we are going to rely on someone who has been pitching especially well as of late. Mr. Roansy Contreras. Contreras takes on a very tough Braves offense who can be red hot at times but I think he can take us to the promise land. In his last three starts, he holds a 20.0 K-BB%, 3.28 SIERA, and 12.1 SwStr%. I learned last season that sometimes a hot pitcher can overcome a hot offense so let’s see.
Since Contreras could easily be off your wire I would turn my head towards our deep league streamer below as your backup.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
In deep leagues, I would roll with Bruce Zimmermann. Zimmermann is just 5% rostered and he has a juicy matchup against the Kansas City Royals. While Zimmermann has become the pitcher we once knew (mediocre) the Royals can be especially bad making this a solid option.
Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)
If you are in a shallow league the top pick of the day is Aaron Ashby for no reason besides him being AWESOME. In his last three starts Ashby has been budding into a star with a 24.5 K-BB%, 2.43 SIERA, and 15.7 SwStr%. He has been an absolute stud and it should continue, even against the Phillies.
Saturday 6/11: Tyler Wells @ KCR
Sunday 6/12: Ross Stripling @ DET and Nick Martinez vs COL
