Fantasy Baseball: Week 11 Pitching Streamers

Brewers Junior Guerra

Finding pitching streamers for Week 11 was probably the hardest up until this point this season, but I was able to scrounge some up that I think can provide nice upside and compliment who you already have on your rosters. Also, don’t forget to click the image below to listen to our podcast!

Junior Guerra | Milwaukee Brewers

(6/16 vs. SD)

ESPN: 29%   Yahoo: 46%

Guerra has been fine in his three starts back from the DL, but a showing against the Padres may be what he needs to really get back on track. With the Padres rapidly rising up the K-rate charts, in which they are striking out the second most in MLB, Guerra could get a bump in his strikeout numbers. The Padres don’t take a lot of walks either and that could be of benefit to Guerra since he does give up more walks than we’re comfortable with. He turned heads last season, and he’s expected to regress a bit, but he’s still streamer-worthy in plus match ups.

Mike Foltynewicz | Atlanta Braves

(6/12 @ WAS, 6/18 vs. MIA) 

ESPN: 20%   Yahoo: 21%

“Folty” has had a few strong starts this season, with the most impressive so far being against the Reds where he had 10 strikeouts in seven innings. He didn’t get as many strikeouts in his last start against the Phillies, but pitching seven scoreless really makes up for it while only walking two batters. Folty has a two-start week, with the more favorable matchup being against the Marlins. If you’re in weekly league, it’s worth a chance to start Folty in the game against the Nationals since he seems to be dialed in.

Jordan Montgomery | New York Yankees

(6/15 @ OAK)

ESPN: 20%   Yahoo: 20%

Montgomery is doing just fine in starts that he should have the upper hand in, and is doing it quietly. He has an ERA of 3.68, which is a nice compliment to him only giving up just five homeruns. That should stay in tact in his next start in Oakland. The ball park is definitely in his favor, and so are the A’s swings and misses. As a team, the A’s don’t score a ton of runs and in their last 12 games they’ve scored five or more in just five of them – three of those, resulting in a loss. Point being, Montgomery is really going to have to give it up to them to lose this game, but he’s pitched well enough against weaker opponents and the A’s shouldn’t be a problem for him.

Joe Ross | Washington Nationals

(6/13 vs. ATL, 6/18 @ NYM)

ESPN: 13%   Yahoo: 34%

Ross’ last start against the Orioles was an excellent one. He has two starts coming up in Week 11, against the Braves and Mets. Ross is startable in both of these matchups. While the Braves can be scrappy, it’s still a Freddie Freeman-less lineup that is vulnerable at times. The Mets have their struggles offensively as well, and this is the perfect week to use Ross and take advantage of his opponents. His ERA is pretty high from a few bad starts, but his K/9 is up, and BB/9 is down from last season which is a trend in the right direction.

Thank you for reading, and good luck with your picks!
