Three Quick Fantasy Baseball Streaming Options for 5/5/10
Here are some pitchers you can plug into your lineup for Cinco de Mayo.
Brandon Morrow, Toronto Blue Jays
Morrow should give you boost in strikeouts as he takes on the Indians. He has 33 Ks in 28 innings, including 25 in his last three starts. His ERA has went from 12.00 to 5.46 in those three starts.
Result: ND, 5-1/3 IP, 3 Runs, 9 Ks
Brian Bannister, Kansas City Royals
Bannister has allowed 2 runs or fewer in four of his five starts. He sports a 1-1 record with a 3.48 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He’s not much help in the strikeout department (16 Ks, 31 IP), but he should help elsewhere against the White Sox, who are dead last in the league with a .227 team average.
Result: L, 3 IP, 7 Runs, 3 Ks
Rodrigo Lopez, Arizona Diamondbacks
Lopez has been pretty ordinary this year posting a 1-1 record with a 4.50 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, and 19 Ks in 30 innings. He is only an attractive option because he’s taking on the Astros, who are last in the league with just 73 runs in 25 games (2.92 per game). They are hitting .236 with just 9 HRs.
Result: ND, 7 IP, 2 Runs, 4 Ks
Today’s Results: 0-1, 15-1/3 IP, 12 Runs, 16 Ks
Yesterday’s Streamers: 0-1, 7 IP, 7 Runs, 4 Ks
Season Totals: 16-17, 293 IP, 122 Earned Runs (3.75 ERA), 202 Ks
Bonus: Cobly Lewis (TEX) is a great start against the A’s, but with his early success (3-0, 2.76 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 38 Ks) I’m not sure he qualifies as a streaming option. If he’s available in your league, you probably want to pick him up.
