While looking I also really wanted to add hitter stats like hits and OBP, but I'm not sure what pitcher stats to go with to balance them out.
I look at wins and quality starts as mediocre streamable stats. The more pitchers you throw at those stats, the better of a chance you have to gain. You can put a Kyle Lohse against the Pirates at home and have a decent chance to gain a Win and a Quality Start. If you want to keep your pitcher's from getting watered down, add a ratio stat like k/9 or k/bb.
I'd add an additional ratio stat for hitters as well. OBP or OPS works well. Hits make AVG seem redundant. The higher the average, the more hits produced.
