I am thrilled with those results from last week. No one made “the list” this week and that’s always a good thing. I was in attendance on Saturday night to see our boy Chad Bettis (who has appeared in these articles a handful of times already) spin seven scoreless innings against the NYM. What more could I ask for? Perhaps another good week. Might be a lot to ask for considering the options we have…

Consider The Following
Mr. Streamer himself. It seems like it doesn’t matter how many good starts Kuhl strings together, he will always be a guy who is under 20% owned and available to stream. Sunday was his best start of the season going 7 IP, O ER, 8 Ks on the road against MIL and picking up the win. The 25-year-old has been very formidable this year with a 4.12 ERA and an 8.24 K/9 in 39.1 IP. I mentioned a couple of weeks ago how his Sinker is his most effective pitch and that he doubled up the usage of his Curveball this year. That has stayed intact over his last couple of starts so look for Kuhl to have a solid start against the SFG.
Big Sexy. Bartolo has suprisingly fared pretty well against good competition so far this year. Sporting a 3.29 ERA and a 3.66 xFIP in 38.1 IP, Bartolo has been just about the only thing going right for Texas this season. He even owns an astounding 0.70 BB/9. Yes, you read that correctly. Slim pickings this week so give Colon a chance. Baseball is just better when he’s pitching and at the very least this stream will give you incentive to watch him. Good luck.
There isn’t much to like about Homer Bailey except that hes facing a Mets team who are currently in a downward spiral. Most of Bailey’s peripherals look just as bad as they did last season. On a positive note his control seems to be significantly better and his slider has been effective. Working in Bailey’s favor this week is the fact that the Mets are dead last in the league hitting .193 vs RHP over the last 7 days. Like I said earlier, slim pickings this week so give Bailey a shot.
