Hyun-Jin Ryu | Los Angeles Dodgers

(9/23 SF)

ESPN: 37%   ESPN: 43%

Ryu is still available in most leagues, due to the Dodgers skipping a start and there’s less fantasy teams in competition this time of the season. His Week 24 start comes against the Giants at home. It’s hard not to keep choosing pitchers against the Giants’ offense, even with a pitcher like Ryu, who won’t be pushed to go deep into games. You’ll take five good innings and other stats and ratios to pad your numbers.

Josh Tomlin | Cleveland Indians

(9/20 @ LAA)

ESPN: 30%   Yahoo: 26%

The Indian’s streak has been broken, but baseball still goes on. Tomlin gets his Week 24 start against the Angels in Anaheim. As of Friday, the Angels are just 2 1/2 games back from the second AL Wild Card spot. The Indians are still going to come out and be competitive, and a pitcher like Tomlin can really help seal the deal for them. He hasn’t been pitching deep into games, but he does good enough. At this point, you probably have a few strong starters and whomever you stream will be a compliment to them.

Reynaldo Lopez | Chicago White Sox

(9/22 KC)

ESPN: 12%   Yahoo: 14%

Lopez’s last three starts have been quality starts. The worry is lack of strikeouts in his last two, but they were against the Royals and Indians. He faces the Royals again, and maybe he’ll make some adjustments the second time around. Even if he doesn’t, you’ll welcome another quality start because he’s giving you a chance at the win and lowering your teams ERA. This start is later in the week, so you can wait a bit to see if you’ll need this start or not.

Brent Suter | Milwaukee Brewers

(9/19 @ PIT, 9/24 vs. CHC)

ESPN: 4%   Yahoo: 6%

Suter has a two-start week; first against the Pirates and the other against the Cubs. His last two starts were only three innings, so there is some concern for this week. He didn’t get lit up in these starts, which is good and hopefully he can stretch it out a bit more for the more favorable start against the Pirates. The Brewers need Suter to step it up since Jimmy Nelson‘s out of the rotation. Looking back at previous starts, he’s capable of pitching six to seven innings with a handful of strikeouts. I don’t expect him to make a leap to those numbers, but I think he’ll keep progressing and it could make difference for your team.

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