Streaming Pitching
Jake Odorizzi - Tampa Bay Rays
  • @ R.A. Dickey - Toronto Blue Jays (Mon, May 20)
    • Odorizzi was part of the James Shields/Wil Myers deal in the off season.  Jake will be making his first MLB start, but he is well worth the risk!
Matt Garza - Chicago Cubs
  • @ Wandy Rodriguez - Pittsburgh Pirates (Tues, May 21)
    • Garza is returning from a spring training injury and might have a pitch limit but he should be added to your roster and held onto for the long haul.
Kevin Slowey - Miami Marlins
  • vs Cliff Lee - Philadephia Phillies (Wed, May 22)
    • Slowey has faced the Phillies twice this season already and allowed just 1 run in 12.1 innings with 11 strike outs.  He has been rocked his last 2 starts, but have faith in the veteran.
Kevin Gausman - Baltimore Orioles
  • @ Brandon Morrow - Toronto Blue Jays (Thurs, May 23)
    • Gausman will be making his 1st major league start, but with just 4 other games on tap, your options are limited.  Gausman has just 13 minor league starts under his belt, but he doesn't give up the long ball and he gets a little more than a strike out per inning.  He is the Orioles #2 prospect and ranked 37 in all of baseball.
      • You can go Jeanmar Gomez (Pirates) against the Cubs
Friday - Sunday streaming pitching options to be updated during the week!
