Mixing It Up

Friday, June 01, 2012



Streamer City

The following pitchers are generally available in over 50 percent of fantasy leagues and have favorable match-ups this week:

American League

Tuesday, 6/5: Bruce Chen vs. MIN
The crafty southpaw has largely pitched well at home and should fare well against Minnesota's lefty-heavy lineup.

Friday, 6/8: Hector Noesi vs. LAD
The rookie has turned in three straight quality starts and will face a Dodgers club that has never seen him before.

Friday, 6/8: P.J. Walters vs. CHC
It's hard to say whether his hot start is legit, but he's shown no signs of slowing down thus far and is supporting his results with solid peripherals.

National League

Wednesday, 6/6: Wade Miley vs. COL
Miley is rocking a dazzling 2.41 ERA and Colorado's team OPS is almost 200 points lower on the road than at Coors.

Thursday, 6/7: J.A. Happ vs. STL
Happ has been on a roll lately and is coming off a 10-K performance.

Friday, 6/8: Nathan Eovaldi @ SEA
The promising prospect gets a favorable match-up against the punchless Mariners.
