A Busy Week Ahead

Friday, June 22, 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

Wednesday, 6/27: Luis Mendoza vs. KC
In two starts since rejoining the Royals rotation, Mendoza has allowed only three runs over seven hits in 12 innings with a 9/3 K/BB.

Wednesday, 6/27: Kevin Millwood vs. OAK
The veteran has been surprisingly effective for the M's, and matches up well against Oakland at home.

Thursday, 6/28: Brett Cecil vs. LAA
Cecil looked sharp in his season debut this past week. Give him a look against the Halos.

National League

Wednesday, 6/27: Lucas Harrell vs. SD
The rookie has been brutal on the road this season, but at home he's 4-0 with a 2.76 ERA.

Thursday, 6/28: Chris Young @ LAD
He might not be vintage Chris Young, but he's been plenty effective thus far, allowing only two runs in each of his first three starts for the Mets.

Friday, 6/29: Paul Maholm vs. HOU
Maholm has been very good in his last two turns, both at home, turning in a pair of quality starts to go along with a 13/2 K/BB.
