Things went according to plan on Wednesday, with Josh Tomlin putting up a quality start and contributing a win. His performance was solid, while not spectacular, but it’s what we’re looking for in a streamer.
There are a lot of quality streamers available on Friday, but I’m going to go with the one with the highest upside, Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Streaming Sleepers Pick:
Daisuke Matsuzaka (BOS) vs SEA – 22%
Streaming Dice-K scares me a lot actually, but he’s been practically unhittable (2 hits in last 15 IP). He is known for nibbling to every hitter, causing his walk rate to elevate and his innings pitched to be severely reduced. Even so, he’s been ridiculous of late and is facing a below average Mariners offense. If Dice-K regresses from his recent success it should still result in a quality outing, feel free to stream him and others on Friday.
Other options: Brian Duensing (@ KC), Joe Blanton (vs NYM), Clayton Richard (@ LAD).
