Fantasy Baseball Pitcher Streamers Week 4, provides potential even in a seemingly rough slate. Teams are starting to settle in and line ups are becoming consistent. There are some streaming gems to be had. Week 4 provides bounce back opportunities, a chance to prove they’re for real, or solid opportunities against weaker line ups.

Taijuan Walker – Seattle Mariners

(Monday at Texas Rangers)

Taijuan Walker struggled in his first two starts but seemed to get back on track in his third start of the season. This game is on the road, which gives me some hesitation, but Walker has an excellent opportunity against the Texas Rangers. Walker will have the opportunity to rack up the strikeouts and have a great shot at the win. He will have to learn how to go deeper in games to become a reliable starter and not just a streamer.

Jeff Locke – Pittsburgh Pirates

(Tuesday at Chicago Cubs)

Jeff Locke has been solid thus far this season with a 2-0 record, amassing 15 strikeouts. Locke will have the potential to rack up the strikeouts against the free-swinging Cubs. He had seven strikeouts in his last outing against these same Cubs. He will have to avoid the big inning which shortened his last outing. The potential for a really nice outing is there but I may avoid Locke in leagues with a weekly starts limit.

Nathan Eovaldi – New York Yankees

(Saturday at Boston Red Sox)

Nathan Eovaldi has been solid this season through three outings. While the road start for Eovaldi may be intimidating, his two best starts have been road outings, including one against the Tigers. He has the potential to put up a strong strikeout total, like the nine he put up against Baltimore. While he’ll likely give up a few hits, he should limit the damage and provide solid numbers all around.

Tommy Milone – Minnesota Twins

(Saturday vs Chicago White Sox)

Tommy Milone may not be the sexiest name, but is one you should look at. He has been reliable this season with a 2-0 record and 11 strikeouts. His era is in the low threes and the White Sox provide a good opportunity to pitch well. His best outing of the season came against the White Sox. He allowed only two hits while racking up seven strikeouts. Milone is facing Hector Noesi in this matchup, which should give him a solid win potential. Avoiding Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija is always a huge bonus.

Drew Hutchison – Toronto Blue Jays

(Sunday at Cleveland Indians)

Drew Hutchison provides an awesome opportunity in Sunday’s game. While Hutchinson has been a little up and down this season, his last outing showed a really solid improvement. He only allowed two earned runs, while tallying seven strikeouts. Three of his four outings have seen five-plus K’s for Hutchison. A Sunday game typically provides a rest day for many players, and this should provide him with a strong chance to avoid a crooked number. In this matchup Hutchison faces T.J. House who has been pitching poorly thus far this season.
