Slate Outlook

It’s another Sunday fun day! We have a bunch of options to choose from and while there aren’t a lot of high-quality options, streaming today could be useful. Either way, make sure to enjoy some baseball today and remember to have fun!

Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)

We are sticking with a pitcher we chose earlier this week in Nick Lodolo. Pitching in Cincinnati is always dangerous but he was able to pull it off last time so let’s see if he can do it again. Since coming back from injury Lodolo has a 4.08 ERA but it comes with a 3.80 FIP, 3.59 xFIP, and 32.9 K%. The WHIP is crazy high at times but again, I think Lodolo can pull this off against the Orioles.

Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)

Reid Detmers has been on fire since getting the call with a 1.06 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 48.7 GB%, and 29.2 K% in 17 innings. He has upped his slider usage and has seen a big uptick in both his fastball velocity and slider velocity.

If you need a back I would roll with Dane Dunning against the Angels. He won’t get you a quality start but the ratios could be there.
