Today is going to be super exciting as today is the trade deadline and we could see a lot of moving parts today! Make sure to slack off at work as much as possible! As for today’s slate, there are a bunch of options but it is a bit top heavy with only three pitchers having a rating over 6.6.
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
Today’s streamer is Braxton Garrett. It’s hard to not take him every time since he constantly puts up fantastic underlying metrics. His K-BB% in his last three starts sits at 32.4% which is elite. Speaking of…actually, his SIER and SwStr% are both elite as well. I like him at home against the Reds whose offense just got worse by trading Tommy Pham.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
If you are in a deep like Garrett doesn’t work here but Jordan Lyles does. His underlying metrics aren’t all that and he takes on the Rangers but I have a weird gut feeling he pulls this off.
Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)
Garrett works here.
Wednesday 8/3: Mike Minor @ MIA
Thursday 8/4: Bailey Falter vs WSN
Friday 8/5: Drew Smyly vs MIA
Saturday 8/6: Spenser Watkins vs PIT
Sunday 8/7: Nick Lodolo @ MIL
