Morning Read: Going to do a little promoting here. Sorry! We are getting into the live streaming world! We want to do this because we want to be able to show you all things via video, pictures, and more. Our podcasts will also be uploaded to Youtube because we will be using all kinds of imagery during those as well! Seeing is believing people! So if you could subscribe to either of our channels we would greatly appreciate it.
Today's Streamer: For our main pick we are going to go with Kwang-Hyun Kim. I tweeted the other day about him and how solid his numbers have been. He seems to consistently live under the radar and I think it is because of his lack of strikeouts. With that said he goes to face the Padres in San Diego, a team that cannot hit left-handed pitching.
Shallow League Option: You can never go wrong with Jordan Montgomery! Monty has been solid this year and in his last two starts, his K-BB% sits at 27.3% while his SwStr% is at 14.4%. Pitching in Baltimore isn't usually ideal because it is hitter-friendly but the Orioles offense ain't that great. Think of them as Chipotle and how inferior they are to Taco Bell.
Deep League Option: This is where things get really rough. There are plenty of good options for pitchers rostered over 15% but if you are in a deep league do not stream. Don't do it. Don't push that button. Grab Josh Fleming if you must.
Looking For Strikeouts: Robbie Ray and Jordan Montgomery.
Looking For Quality Starts: Kwang-Hyun Kim, Robbie Ray, and Jordan Montgomery.
Looking For Wins: Jordan Montgomery and Josh Fleming.
Looking For Ratios: Robbie Ray, Kway-Hyun Kim, JT Brubaker, and Josh Fleming.
Tomorrow's Streamers: Yusei Kikuchi, Casey Mize, Adbert Alzolay, and Logan Webb.
The Day After: John Gant.
Two Start Streamers:

Patrick Corbin vibes right here
