SP,RP - BOS
Nick Pivetta went 5.1 innings, allowed three hits, no earned runs, and struck out five in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.
These are the kind of outings that make Pivetta such an intriguing streaming option. At the same time, its very hard to predict when he is going to have a solid outing, for example this most recent one was against a good offense. He should be viewed as a solid streamer in plus matchups for those that are willing to take on the risk of a blow-up start.
Red Sox pitcher Nick Pivetta (COVID-19) will start against the White Sox on Sunday afternoon, according to manager Alex Cora.
By the time Pivetta returns, he will have missed one week due to a positive COVID-19 test. Through 26 outings this season, the 28-year-old is 9-7 with a 4.67 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and .233 OBA. He has also walked 62 batters and struck out 151. Boston desperately needs starting pitching help right now, especially after losing Chris Sale to the COVID-19 list after he tested positive, too.
