Streaming starting pitchers can be one of the most effective strategies in fantasy baseball. There aren’t a ton of great options tomorrow, but here are two pitchers who are widely available and should be useful on June 26.
Jarred Cosart vs. Atlanta Braves
Cosart has quietly been on a roll as of late, he’s allowed three earned runs or fewer in his last 11 starts. Over that stretch he has a 2.84 ERA to go with a 1.29 WHIP and 45 strikeouts over 69.2 innings. Cosart is extremely good at pitching to contact and inducing groundballs. His 56.7 percent groundball rate this season is the fifth highest in MLB.
On Thursday he gets to take on a Braves offense that is one of the worst in baseball. Atlanta is 29th in baseball in runs scored and they’re 25th in wOBA. There aren’t many viable streaming options on Thursday but Cosart is a guy you should consider.
Wily Peralta vs. Colorado Rockies
Peralta has been excellent so far this season, he’s allowed three earned runs or fewer in 13 of his 15 starts this season. Through 95.1 innings he has a 3.02 ERA to go with a 1.23 WHIP and 69 strikeouts.
Peralta is set to take on a Rockies offense that, for as unstoppable as they’ve been at home, has been quite pedestrian on the road. Away from Coors field, the Rockies are slashing just .237/.290/.387 and they’re 23rd in MLB with a .298 wOBA on the road.
