Fantasy Baseball Streaming Pitchers & Waiver Wire Pickups (Week 9)

Fantasy Baseball Streaming Pitchers & Waiver Wire Pickups (Week 9)

It’s already Week 9 for fantasy baseball streaming pitchers. The fantasy baseball season is moving along. We are seeing some repeat streaming pitchers along with new pitchers on the list. Along with my daily picks this week, I will pick one pitcher and try to predict their stat totals for that day. Let’s see how far off I can get.

Before we get into the Week 9 streaming pitchers, let’s look at my picks from May 6 – May 12:

Totals: 35.2, 16 ER, 9 BB, 19 Ks

Record: 2-4

*Jameson Taillon was supposed to pitch on May 10th but it was pushed back, so his stats didn’t factor in.

It was not a good week for fantasy baseball streaming pitchers. Hopefully, this week will be better. Here are my top fantasy baseball streaming pitchers for Week 9.

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Assistant Analyze Moves Who To Pick Up

Streaming Pitchers: Week 9

(Rostered Percentage is based on the average of ESPN, YAHOO, and CBS leagues)

Monday, May 20th

Joe Ross (MIL) at MIA | 4%

Joe Ross has a good chance to pick up the win in this one. I picked Ryan Weathers as the other option, but Milwaukee is the better team here. Ross has gone at least five innings in six of his eight starts. His 4.61 ERA and 1.37 WHIP don’t scream confidence but it’s Miami and the damage should be limited. Miami is hitting only .231 against right-handers with an on-base percentage (OBS) under .300. Ross has over a 42% groundball rate, which is the one stat that makes me hopeful for this start.

Other Option: Ryan Weathers (MIA) vs. MIL | 8%

Tuesday, May 21st

Alec Marsh (KC) vs. DET | 21%

This will be Alec Marsh’s third start after coming off the injured list (IL). In the previous two starts, he has pitched at least five innings and seven strikeouts in both games. Marsh ranks above league average in BB% and hard-hit%. Detroit has nearly 300 strikeouts against right-handers this season and hitting only .224 against righties. Marsh currently has a 2.43 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and teams are hitting just .210 against him this season. Not sure how long this production will last but I would feel good starting Marsh here.

Other Option: Robert Gasser (MIL) at MIA | 22%

Wednesday, May 22nd

Simeon Woods Richardson (MIN) at WSH | 14%

The former top prospect continues to stay in the Twins rotation and doesn’t appear in danger of losing his spot for now. Simeon Woods Richardson has a 2.97 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 25 Ks in 30.1 innings pitched. Washington is hitting .230 against right-handers and are below league average in OBP and SLG. The Nationals also have one of the league’s worst exit velocity% and rank at the top of the league in weak% contact. Woods Richardson should limit damage in this start.

He is also my prediction pick this week: 6IP, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 Ks and a win

Other Option: Jake Irvin (WSH) vs. MIN | 9%

Thursday, May 23rd

Bryce Elder (ATL) at CHC | 16%

Well, it’s Thursday again and surprise, surprise it’s going to be rough. In Bryce Elder’s four starts this season, he has pitched over five innings in three of them. Against the Dodgers, he went only 3.1 innings and got in trouble quickly. However, that was against the Dodgers and thankfully this start is not. The Cubs have played three games against the Braves this season and are hitting just .214 against them. Going with Elder here because the Braves lineup can help secure a win for him.

Other Option: Ryan Feltner (COL) at OAK | 2%

Friday, May 24th

Patrick Sandoval (LAA) vs. CLE | 11%

Picking Patrick Sandoval here has some risks. His 5.00 ERA and 1.53 WHIP are not appealing. He has only allowed two home runs this season and ranks above league average in groundball% and hard-hit%. The Guardians have the league’s worst hard-hit% and their exit velocity% ranks in the bottom five of the league. Although the Guardians are a good team, the lineup doesn’t strike any fear and Sandoval could do enough to get a win.

Other Option: Logan Allen (CLE) at LAA | 18%

Saturday, May 25th

Trevor Williams (WSH) vs. SEA | 44%

Not sure what to think of Trevor Williams but it’s working right now, so let’s not question it. Right? Williams has a 1.94 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and is 4-0. Teams are hitting just .211 against him. Williams has gone five innings in all eight of his starts. He has a great groundball% at 47%. Seattle is hitting just .227 against right-handers with an OBP of .300. Seattle does have 350 strikeouts against right-handers and also leads the league in strikeouts. Williams might not throw a quality start here but can do enough in five innings to get a win and maybe a half dozen strikeouts.

Other Option: Jameson Taillon (CHC) at STL | 46%

Sunday, May 26th

Taj Bradley (TB) vs. KC | 44%

Taj Bradley has pitched in just two games this season. He is 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. The Royals lineup is not the pushover they used to be but do have a high chase rate. Bradley has been given the green light to at least pitch deep into games. In his two starts his pitch counts were 93 and 83. The Royals will be throwing Michael Wacha in this start, so it could be a pitcher’s duel. Bradley is a young and talented pitcher. He should put the Rays in a position to win this game.

Other Option: Mitchell Parker (WAS) vs. SEA | 22%
