I hope everyone enjoyed the All-Star festivities or at least the couple-day hiatus from eying up box scores. MLB has dialed up a busy week coming out of the break, with 16 teams playing 7 games. There are plenty of two-start streamers for shallow formats. Unfortunately, the 15-team landscape remains as barren as the Tigers’ run column.

Seven Games – Orioles, Red Sox, Reds, Guardians, Rockies, Tigers, Astros, Royals, Angels, Dodgers, Marlins, Phillies, Mariners, Giants, Rays, and Rangers

Five Games: White Sox, Twins, Mets, and Cardinals

 

10/12 Team

Jake Odorizzi (HOU/SP) – He’s a streaming add in shallower formats as Houston has been utilizing a 6-man rotation. Houston has 7 games this week and Odorizzi is scheduled to face Oakland and Seattle. Oakland is 29th against RHP since June 1st with a 70 wRC+. Seattle has been on a roll but they only own the 17th highest OPS over that time. (1-2% FAAB)

Jakob Junis (SFG/SP) – Junis looked strong prior to his injury. He’s gets it done by pouring in strikes. His called strike of 21.5% is 2nd behind Adam Wainwright with at least 50 innings pitched. He won’t light up the strikeout column, but he plays for a good organization in a pitcher’s park. Jakob is scheduled for a two start against two dreary offenses, the Diamondbacks and Cubs. (3-4% FAAB)

Dane Dunning (TEX/SP) – Dunning pitched 5 innings in his last rehab start. As a result, the Rangers have listed Dunning as their probable starter for Tuesday’s game against the Mariners. That timeline also sets him up for a start against the Angels. On the year, the Angels have the highest k-rate in the bigs and is 24th  in wRC+. Now that Mike Trout is on the IL, I would be looking to stream against them as much as possible. (1-2% FAAB)

Braxton Garrett (MIA/SP) – It appears to be third time lucky for Garrett. Garrett was shaky in his first two cracks at the majors. Through 47.1 innings, Garrett has a 3.42 ERA and a strong 18.4% K-BB. He also generates groundballs at 45.1% clip and has done a good job avoiding hard contact (35.1% HH). (2-3% FAAB)

 

15 Team Adds

Brayan Bello (BOS/SP)- Chris Sale is back home on the IL. Leaving a rotation spot back open for Bello. Bello has a strong prospect pedigree and was rocking a 34.2% K-rate in Triple-A. His main detractor is his control. His walk rate has consistently hovered around 10% at his last few stops. (1-2% FAAB)

Nick Pratto (KCR/1B,OF) – Vinnie Pasquanitino received most of the Royals prospect coverage this year. However, Pratto is considered by many to be the better long-term prospect. Nick has had some strike-out issues in the minors but offers a good deal of power. Pratto does not have elite speed but he does have 8 steals in 10 attempts in Triple-A.(4-6% FAAB)

Jean Segura (PHI/2B) – Segura is nearing a rehab assignment and should be back in the line up in a couple weeks. (1-2% FAAB)

Michael Brantley (HOU/OF) – Brantley is another who is a few weeks out, if you have the roster space. (1-2% FAAB)
