With leagues limiting moves, so fantasy owners do not stream their way to victory, picking up two start pitchers is crucial in fantasy baseball. Here are some options that are most likely available in your league, that can give you two starts next week. Do not be afraid to add them this weekend if you have an extra move or two available and feel like you can win your pitching categories without making another move. Save next weeks moves for streaming options!
Hector Santiago (55% Yahoo, 56% ESPN)
Santiago has made 11 starts for the Los Angeles Angels and his ERA is just 2.69. It jumped from 2.18 after Santiago allowed 5 earned runs to score in his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays. He only allowed 5 ER in his previous 5 starts. Santiago will face the Rays (Nathan Karns) again on Tuesday, before matching up with Sonny Gray and taking on the Oakland Athletics bats on Sunday.
Angels push back Santiago to Thursday!
Lance McCullers (42%, 35%)
McCullers is coming off his first CG of his career and struck out 11 Orioles in the process. He now has 29 strikeouts to 6 walks in 24 IP. He won't turn 22 until after the season ends. McCullers has a tough challenge ahead of him Monday against Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox, but Lance is a guy you are going to want to throw out there each and every start going forward, while the Astros continue to be the 2015 Kansas City Royals. He will then matchup with Taijuan Walker and the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Chad Bettis (10%, 20%)
The Colorado Rockies have struggled to find pitching, but Chad Bettis has led the Rockies to 5 wins in 5 starts. He has only recorded two Ws, but owns a 2.70 ERA across 33.1 IP and a slightly better ERA at Coors Field (2 GS). Bettis has a 27:9 K:BB and will matchup with John Lackey or Michael Wacha and take on the St. Louis Caridnals bats before heading to Miami to take on the Marlins lineup and matchup with Dan Haren or Brad Hand. There is a question mark in the Rockies rotation according to their schedule on ESPN.
