Two Start Pitcher of the Week - Nick Pivetta

Nick Pivetta's curveball was nominated for Nastiest Pitch of the Night over at

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!

Phillies Nick Pivetta Fantasy Baseball
Pivetta now has three 2018 starts under his belt, and the last two have been terrific. In fairness, we’re talking about a Marlins lineup that’s not at 100%, and a Reds lineup that’s even further from 100%. The competition has not been stiff. But Pivetta’s struck out 16 of 47 batters, without issuing one single walk. - FanGraphs
