Morning Read: For this morning's read I would like to shout out Jonathan Chan (@JChan_811). He recently wrote an article for waiver wire adds, which you can find here. He basically gives you a handful of pitchers that you should look into adding for your fantasy baseball teams. The main reason you should read this article is for the information. He brings up a great point for Joe Ross and how he is generating a career-high CSW rate. He tells you why Hunter Renfroe is having a semi-breakout season. Lastly, he brings to light what could come for the Phillies' closer situation and Jose Alvarado. Go follow Jonathan and check out his article.
Today's Streamer: We are rolling with Caleb Smith once again! He is a pitcher you might as well ride the train with until it gives out. Plus the Cardinals still haven't been hitting that well. Sure they have been hitting better but still not great. Most importantly all month left-handed pitchers have been taking advantage of them. Cheers to Caleb Smith and his slider!
Shallow League Option: Jameson Taillon was finally able to locate his four-seam consistently in his last start. That fastball can be good when placed on the top of the zone so hopefully he can do a better job with that moving forward. He gets a matchup with the Angels, an offense that certainly can be great at times. As of right now though, they have been as cold as ice.
Deep League Option I couldn't be more scared for this pick. If you are in deep leagues don't stream today unless you are in love with Jose Urena because he is the only pitcher with a good matchup. Anyway, our pick is Vince Velasquez. You cant see it, but I am banging my head against the desk right now.
