What you need to know for Tuesday's MLB Games

By Derek Carty

  • Tuesday brings us several good pitchers to consider streaming, although a few are only a available in a quarter of leagues or so. Taijuan Walker (78%), Sean Manaea (77%), and Jon Gray (61%) are all worth mentioning in case they are available in your league, though, considering they comprise three of the day's top five pitchers overall.

  • Dipping down below the 50% mark, Jose Quintana (46%) would be our top choice. He goes into a strong pitcher's park in Pittsburgh to face one of the league's weakest offenses.

  • If you need someone who is almost sure to be available, check out Michael Lorenzen (10%). He goes into Oakland, where he'll face one of baseball's worst offenses in an elite pitchers' park with the day's best pitching weather.

  • The Yankees, Rangers, Tigers, and Mariners all play a double-header today. Yankees and Mariners project best, but finding anyone from these games who is likely to play both halves of the double-header makes for a great streaming opportunity. Since Aaron Judge is probably already rostered in your league, check out Josh Donaldson (64%) and Harrison Bader (25%) from the Yankees. The Mariners offer Mitch Haniger (71%), Jesse Winker (71%), J.P. Crawford (66%), Eugenio Suarez (62%), and Jarred Kelenic (30%). From the Tigers and Rangers, consider Javier Baez (69%), Josh Jung (6%), Riley Greene (13%), Leody Taveras (5%), Spencer Torkelson (42%), and Akil Baddoo (8%).

  • If you're trying to scrouge up one or two more steals before the season is through, the Yankees also offer help in this regard. Jon Gray is easy to steal on, so even if you don't manage to get two games out of your streamers, you'll still stand a good shot of getting a swipe if your pickup happens to play in that game. Harrison Bader (25%), Oswald Peraza(1%), and Isiah Kiner-Falefa (15%) would stand the best chance, if in the lineup.
