Morning Read: Last night Kyle Freeland pitched seven innings while allowing just two earned runs and striking out ten hitters. It's time we start taking Kyle Freeland seriously because in his last six starts he has a 2.75 ERA, 2.62 FIP, and 3.39 SIERA. He hasn't been lucky, he has been able to handle Coors Field, and his weak contact numbers have improved dramatically. If he is still out there in your league I really think he is a viable option.
Today's Streamer: I'm going to be upfront here and say that I don't really like today's slate. Besides some good shallow league options, it runs dry fast. I think the safest floor pick is Alec Mills against the Royals so I am going to roll with that but without much confidence. If you don't need to stream don't.
Shallow League Option: Touki Toussaint is the pick for today and likely the best streaming option, although I do like Matz as well. Touki has a lot of upside but he does have those random blow-up games that you need to keep in the back of your mind. He takes on the Baltimore Orioles who have been the second-worst offense in the league as of late. The risk seems to be worth the reward in this one.
Deep League Option: Alec Mills.
Looking For Strikeouts: Touki Toussaint and Steven Matz.
Looking For Quality Starts: Touki Toussaint, Steven Matz, Alec Mills and Jon Gray.
Looking For Wins: Touki Toussaint and Steven Matz.
Looking For Ratios: Touki Toussaint, Steven Matz, and Alec Mills.
Tomorrow's Streamers: Luis Gil and Daniel Lynch (don't do Lynch).
The Day After: Tanner Houck and Eli Morgan.
