Streaming starting pitchers can be one of the most effective strategies in fantasy baseball. Who should you be looking to spot start over the June 21-22 weekend?
The Seattle Mariners are 29th in MLB with a .642 OPS vs. left-handed pitching, and they're 28th with a .102 ISO. Vargas has given up three or fewer runs in 12 of his 15 starts this season, including each of his last five starts.
Koehler has faded a bit since his hot start to 2014 but he gets the New York Mets at home this weekend, which is about as good as it gets. Koehler has a 3.85 FIP at home this season compared to a 5.25 FIP on the road, and the Mets are 28th in MLB with a .291 wOBA against right-handed pitching.
If you need strikeouts this weekend, Odorizzi is your guy. Odorizzi has been significantly better at home this season (2.87 FIP at home vs. 4.10 FIP on the road), and he's 10th in baseball with a 26.4 percent strikeout percentage. The Astros have the second-worst strikeout percentage in baseball against right-handed pitching at 23.1 percent.
Milone has held opposing offenses to three runs or fewer in each of his last eight starts, and he's been absolutely stellar at home this season, he has a 2.35 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP when pitching at the Oakland Coliseum. The Red Sox have been one of the worst traveling offenses this season. The team's .293 wOBA on the road is the fifth-lowest in baseball.
Danks has allowed two runs or fewer in each of his last five starts. Over that span, he's had a 1.51 ERA to go with a 0.93 WHIP and 21 strikeouts over 35.2 innings. If you need a win and have a big cushion in ERA (or are already behind in the category) on Sunday, Danks is likely one of your best available options.
