If you play fantasy baseball and are looking to stream a player for Wednesday, April 2, these are five guys who are widely available that you should consider adding.

Santiago won't help you much with WHIP, but he should provide a decent ERA, an above average strikeout rate and a decent shot at a win. For his career, Santiago has a 3.41 ERA and 218 strikeouts in 224.2 innings, and in 23 starts last year he only allowed four earned runs or more in four of them (he never gave up more than five).

Lackey was virtually un-ownable from 2010 to 2011, and he missed the entire 2012 season. But he bounced back nicely in 2013, and in 189.1 innings he tallied a 3.52 ERA to go with a 1.16 WHIP and 161 strikeouts. In 29.2 innings against the Orioles in 2013, Lackey had a 3.34 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. He made four starts and three were excellent.

In his 15-year career, Tim Hudson has had two seasons in which his ERA was over 4.00 with the most recent season being back in 2006. Hudson was one of the most overlooked pitchers entering 2014, and as long as he's healthy he should be serviceable. Throughout his career Hudson has absolutely owned the Diamondbacks, compiling a 7-1 record to go with a 2.18 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 11 starts.

Paxton had a very impressive first cup of coffee in the big leagues last season, compiling 21 strikeouts to go with a 1.50 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 24 innings. He already has an above-average curveball and a fastball that sits in the low-mid 90s. Paxton has the potential to be an impactful sleeper this season, and at the very least his start tomorrow is one you should be monitoring.

If you ever need an extra home run and Dunn is floating around your league's waiver wire, he's almost always your go-to add. I like his odds of going long tomorrow when he squares off against the Twins and Kevin Correia. Dunn has hit three home runs off of Correia in 20 career at bats.
