Morning Read: This is super random and I apologize if you all are disappointed with this morning's read, but does anyone know a good/free sleep app? I enjoy ones with ambient sounds and that kind of stuff but I only see apps where you have to pay like $80 a year which is crazy to me.
Also, make sure to check out our new SP Streamer Podcast episode! We bring in David Mendelson to discuss hitters with new playing time as well as pitchers who have moved on to new teams. Check it out here.
* I will be on vacation starting Saturday 8/7 until Tuesday 8/17. I will try my best to update the chart when possible but if not I will be doing this article every day.*
Today's Streamer: We have been riding Zach Thompson for a while now as he has displayed some true talent. The strikeouts have gone down a bit but he was able to have a good start in his last outing and now draws a matchup with the Mets. The Mets are a good offense that is currently struggling so this is somewhat risky but I think Thompson's 2.08 ERA at home should help.
Shallow League Option: Zach Thompson.
Deep League Option: Rough deep league options for today but we will go with Paolo Espino. The Phillies aren't a good matchup but Espino has a 22.0 K-BB% in his last three starts which makes him slightly intriguing. Only do this if you are desperate though, there are just no good options.
Looking For Strikeouts: Zach Thompson and Drew Smyly.
Looking For Quality Starts: Zach Thompson and Steven Matz.
Looking For Wins: Josh Fleming and Steven Matz.
Looking For Ratios: Zach Thompson, Josh Fleming, Drew Smyly, and Paolo Espino.
Tomorrow's Streamers: Rich Hill, Joe Ross, and Ross Stripling.
The Day After: Mike Minor (maybe), Logan Webb, and JT Brubaker.
