Morning Read: Good morning everyone! If you do actually read this section every morning I have a question. I have become a bit of a coffee snob and I am looking for suggestions. If you have a favorite and I can get it online please let me know! By the way, if you drink it with milk:
Our pick of the day yesterday was Logan Allen. Besides the horrible WHIP, he did well enough to earn us that streaming win. In the first couple of innings, he looked nervous and was all over the place. The good thing is he loved targeting the top corner of the zone and kept it in that range rather consistently. Only three whiffs from the breakers is not ideal so I think the jury is still out on him.
I'll tell you who did look good and that is Triston McKenzie. He looked much better compared to last year and his curveball looked insane. The continuing problem with him will be stamina and velocity. He will likely piggyback for a while.
Today's Streamer: Adbert Alzolay is somewhat of a popular name. Likely due to the high strikeout rate (33.3%) and decent SwStr% (10.9%). In his last start of the season against the Chicago White Sox he pitched five innings allowing one earned run and striking out eight hitters. Alzolay gets the Milwaukee Brewers for his first start. The Brewers offense has been just as bad as last year and Keston Hiura seems like a lost cause. High strikeout potential plus a struggling offense, this seems like the right choice.
Shallow League Option: Alzolay.
Deep League Option: Alzolay all around.
Looking For Strikeouts: Alzolay (duh).
Looking For Quality Starts: J.A. Happ
Looking For Wins: J.A. Happ
Looking For Ratios: Chase Anderson
Tomorrow's Streamers: John Means (Shallow)/David Peterson (Main/Deep) - Not a good streaming day.
