Morning Read: Coming out of the all-star break things have been a bit whacky in terms of probable pitchers, who is starting, who isn't, who has COIVD, who doesn't, it has just been crazy. With that said it looks like we have a good outline for starters moving forward. To note: I can't use the last seven days right now so the stats in the sheet will be last 14 days until about Tuesday.
Rain has been plentiful so just come quick notes for today's game. If you have anyone in the Detroit/Minnesota series it looks like that doubleheader should go off and the rain should clear. Keep an eye on that Rangers/Blue Jays game though, rain is in the forecast for game time. Miami against Philadelphia could be a delayed threat as well. Look at me being a weatherman.
Today's Streamer: We have a lot going on today because a lot of pitchers we love to talk about are pitching today. Alex Cobb has been very unlucky so far this season and he gets the worst offense in the league right now in the Seattle Mariners. Cobb has that awesome splitter and the Mariners can strike out a ton, especially Kelenic (kidding, kind of). Our boy Tylor Megill gets Pittsburgh and I will ride him forever! That sounds dirty. His two breaking balls are plus pitches and the dude is just a boss on the mound. I know Pittsburgh is hot, but they are still the same old Pirates.
Shallow League Option: While Alex Cobb and Tylor Megill are fantastic options you could also go with Zach Thompson. You all know I am a huge fan of his and how he varies his speed a lot. His matchup against the Phillies isn't the easiest but his 28.1 K-BB% and 16.3 SwStr% are fabulous.
Deep League Option: Some tough options for today. It came down to Wil Crowe against the Mets and Vince Velasquez against the Marlins. Marlins are struggling more and VV does give you that upside. I suggest not doing this though.
Looking For Strikeouts: Alex Cobb, Tylor Megill, Zach Thompson, and Vince Velasquez.
