Morning Read: Did anyone else notice that Jorge Lopez has a 3.18 ERA and 3.35 FIP in his last three starts? To expand he actually has a 4.04 ERA in his last nine starts. What has he been doing differently? Well in his last three starts he has upped his curveball usage. The issue is, his curveball is not very good. He has been getting a lot of called strikes and I just don't think I can bank on this. We did a live stream breaking him down that you can check out on our Twitch here.
Today's Streamer: Eric Lauer actually hasn't been bad this season and I think with a tight leash he brings a high floor. He takes on the Tigers who are trending the wrong way on offense with a 67 wRC+ and 0.592 OPS in the last seven days
Shallow League Option: It looks like the Pirates should start running cold offensively as Mike Minor handled them easily. That brings us to our streamer pick Brady Singer. Singer is good at home and has been decent in the K-BB% area in his last three starts. The Pirates also haven't hit right-handed pitching well which makes this a solid option.
Deep League Option: Eric Lauer.
Looking For Strikeouts: Brady Singer, Dane Dunning, and Luis Garcia.
Looking For Quality Starts: Brady Singer and Luis Garcia.
Looking For Wins: Brady Singer and Eric Lauer.
Looking For Ratios: Eric Lauer, Brady Singer, and Luis Garcia.
Tomorrow's Streamers: Shane McClanahan and Vladimir Gutierrez.
The Day After: Griffin Canning (maybe).
