Morning Read: Well Bailey Ober worked out well as he went four innings pitched with zero earned runs and six strikeouts. Unfortunately, they didn't let him reach five innings, but it worked out if you took a shot on him. I do have to say that this seemed a little lucky. He only induced four total whiffs and all of them coming from his four-seam fastball. He threw his four-seam 71% of the time which is crazy. It could be game-planning but I want to see his breaking balls put to good use before I buy-in.
Today's Streamer: Today is a really tough slate due to the lack of options. If you don't have to stream, don't do this. In my opinion, when in doubt take strikeout upside. I haven't been a fan of Jorge Lopez this season due to the weak fastball but maybe his breaking ball will be enough by itself? I'll take my chances against a struggling Indians offense.
Shallow League Option: Wade Miley is the obvious choice for today if he is available. Miley has been pitching well while the Padres have not only struggled overall but have struggled all month against left-handed pitchers.
Deep League Option: Jorge Lopez.
Looking For Strikeouts: Jorge Lopez and Wade Miley.
Looking For Quality Starts: Wade Miley.
Looking For Wins: Wade Miley.
Looking For Ratios: Wade Miley.
Tomorrow's Streamers: Zach Davies and Joey Lucchesi (maybe).
The Day After: Austin Gomber, Josh Fleming, and Patrick Sandoval.
