Streaming starting pitchers can be one of the most effective strategies in fantasy baseball. Here are five guys you should look to spot start on July 29, 2014.
Bauer has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last six starts, and over that stretch, he's posted a 3.35 ERA (backed by a 2.93 FIP) to go with a 1.35 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 37.2 innings. He gets to take on a Mariners' offense that is 22nd in baseball against right-handed pitching with a .301 wOBA and 20th with a .682 OPS.
Alvarez has been a must-start at home all season long where he boasts a 1.64 ERA to go with a 1.03 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 66 innings. He'll look to benefit from some more home cooking when the Marlins take on a Nationals team that has been below-average this season against right-handed pitching.
Stroman has simply been too good to pass up. He has a 3.21 ERA this season to go with a 1.10 WHIP and 59 strikeouts over 67.1 innings. He's gone seven innings while giving up zero runs in three of his last four starts; and his last start was a seven-inning, one-hit, two-walk shutout in which he struck out seven against the Red Sox on July 24.
Gee has been solid this season. He has a 3.49 ERA to go with a 1.09 WHIP and 51 strikeouts over 69.2 innings this season. Tuesday he faces a Phillies offense that's 28th in baseball against right-handed pitching with a .293 wOBA and 27th with both a .118 ISO and 83 wRC+.
McCarthy has given up two runs or fewer in each of his last five starts. Over that stretch he has a 1.72 ERA to go with a 1.21 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 31.1 innings. He faces a Rangers' offense Tuesday that's 23rd in MLB with a .299 wOBA and 28th with both a .118 ISO and 82 wRC+ against right-handed pitching.
