Fantasy Baseball Streaming Pitchers & Waiver Wire Targets (Week 3)

Fantasy Baseball Streaming Pitchers & Waiver Wire Targets (Week 3)

Whether it’s Week 2 or Week 3 for your league, we have starting pitchers to stream. I don’t have the final numbers from my first week of picks. I will post them next week. Let’s get right to the streaming!

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Assistant Analyze Moves Who To Pick Up

Streaming Pitchers: Week 3

(We used the average of ESPN, Yahoo and CBS for roster percentage)

Monday, April 8th

Spencer Turnbull (SP – PHI) at STL | 10%

I might not make this pick a few weeks from now, but Spencer Turnbull could be useful right now. He went five innings with zero earned runs and seven strikeouts, his last time out. The Cardinals have already tallied up 70 strikeouts against righties this season. Turnbull has had past injury problems but is currently healthy and worth streaming.

Other Option: Tyler Anderson (SP – LAA) vs. TB | 12%

Tuesday, April 9th

Martin Perez (SP – PIT) vs. DET | 19%

I had Martin Perez listed as a streamer last week, and that went well. He went 7.2 innings with six strikeouts and won. I’ll roll the dice again this week. Don’t be fooled by Perez. You are rolling the dice. It’s early but it feels like we might get the 2022 version of Perez. For now, I would take Perez against Detroit. Detroit has a .195 average against lefties, so any damage should be minimal.

Other Option: Michael Soroka (SP – CHW) at CLE | 16%

Wednesday, April 10th

Erick Fedde (SP – CHS) at CLE | 14%

Erick Fedde has gone at least five innings in his last two games. He doesn’t have a strong swing-and-miss game with 11 strikeouts combined in those two games but there is some value here.

He has issued two walks apiece in the last two games, so hopefully he can lower that in this start. Cleveland has a decent .256 average against righties but their slugging percentage is under .400. This looks like a safe game for Fedde.

Other Option: Cody Bradford (SP – TEX) vs. OAK | 12%

Thursday, April 11th

J.P France (SP – HOU) at KC | 27%

J.P France had a no-decision in his first game against the Yankees but did go over five innings with five strikeouts. He’s currently on the paternity list but is expected to make this appearance against the Royals. I feel like the Astros are waiting to go off offensively and it could happen against the Royals. The Royals have a .238 batting average against righties but they do have 56 strikeouts against them. I foresee another five-inning game for France with at least 5-6 strikeouts and most likely a win.

Other Option: Nick Martinez (SP – CIN) vs. MIL | 7%

Friday, April 12th

Paul Blackburn (SP – OAK) vs. WSH | 9%

Paul Blackburn is one of those pitchers that will string together a few good starts and you will start to believe that maybe there is some value there. Don’t be fooled, but I like him for this start. Washington has been hitting righties. Looking at total bases, though, they are towards the bottom against righties in the league. This game is in Oakland, which isn’t the most hitter-friendly park. Blackburn won’t give you strikeouts (just three in seven innings in his last start) but he does provide innings. He is projected to face Jake Irvin for Washington. I give the edge to Blackburn for this matchup.

Other Option: Keaton Winn (SP – SF) at TB | 12%

Saturday, April 13th

Luis Gil (SP – NYY) at CLE | 32%

Luis Gil’s roster percentage will probably increase slightly over the next month. If he is available in your league, he’s not only worth owning for this matchup but also deserves a long-term spot on your roster. Gil has the makeup of being a pitcher that could get you eight strikeouts in five innings. If he keeps his control in check and garners more starts, he could become a reliable fourth/fifth starter for your fantasy team. Well, as reliable as a fourth/fifth starter can be in a fantasy league. Cleveland hasn’t walked much against righties this season, so I’ll take Gil here.

Other Option: Emerson Hancock (SP – SEA) vs. CHC | 8%

Sunday, April 14th

Tyler Anderson (SP – LAA) at BOS | 12%

I’m not sure if we will get many, if any, starts from the 2022 version of Anderson. He struggled last season but maybe we can trust him this year based on his first start of the year. He went seven innings, striking out five. Yes, it was against Miami, but Boston has a below-.360 slugging percentage and they have not hit any home runs off lefties so far this season (at least at the time of writing this article). I wouldn’t lock on Anderson for the season just yet, but I’ll trust him here.

Other Option: Alex Wood (SP – OAK) vs. WSH | 4%
