That was…awesome. What a crazy trade deadline we had and it’s actually insane what the Padres just did! That was one for the books. As for today’s slate, we have some really solid options with the top two pitchers and while the entire slate is top-heavy I have full confidence in both of them.
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
Today’s streamer is Mike Minor. Why Mike Minor you say? Well because he is left-handed and he takes on the Miami Marlins. Minor isn’t really showing signs of being a solid option long term but the Marlins are just so bad against left-handed pitching I will start virtually anyone against them…if they are an LHP.
Your backup option is someone who is likely rostered in your league because he has been on the rise and that is Brady Singer. Singer has been breaking out lately with a 2.05 ERA, 2.50 FIP, and 2.62 xFIP in his last five starts. Most notably, his strikeout rate in those five starts sits at an elite 35%. If Singer is available in your league make sure to grab him right now.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
