Today’s slate is a bit top-heavy and it really just comes down to two pitchers. If you don’t have to stream, don’t because tomorrow looks a whole lot better! Plenty of options on 6/18!
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
Our pick for today is Devin Smeltzer as he gets a 7.1 rating as he takes on the Arizona Diamondbacks. Smeltzer has been living on the edge with his low strikeout rate and high home run rates but he is pitching well so sometimes we just have to roll with the punches. The main reason I like this stream is that he is left-handed and the Diamondbacks are atrocious against left-handed pitchers.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
Your backup please deep league option is Daniel Lynch. Lynch is only rostered in 3% of leagues and he takes on the Oakland Athletics, a team that is towards rock bottom in terms of wRC+ in the last seven days. Basically, between Lynch and Smeltzer we are playing matchups for the day.
Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)
Saturday 6/18: Brad Keller @ OAK
Sunday 6/19: Brady Singer @ OAK and Dane Dunning @ DET
