What you need to know for Tuesday’s MLB Games

By Derek Carty

  • George Kirby (46% rostered) is your top streaming option on Tuesday. It should come as no surprise, given that he is a highly regarded prospect and is facing perhaps the worst offense in MLB in the Detroit Tigers. Kirby himself has been terrific this year with a 3.32 ERA and 3.27 xFIP in 18 starts.

  • If Kirby isn’t available, Brady Singer (58%) is rostered at roughly the same level, so take a look for him. Singer has quietly been one of the game’s most effective pitchers this year, posting a 9.2 K/9, 2.2 BB/9, and 3.31 xFIP.

  • If you need someone who is almost universally available, though, Dane Dunning (6%) is probably your guy. The matchup against Houston isn’t a great one, but THE BAT X still projects Dunning to go roughly 6 innings with a 3.59 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 4.6 strikeouts, and a 31% chance at a win-which is perfectly serviceable in most mixed leagues.

  • The St. Louis Cardinals project as the top offense of the day by a lot, according to THE BAT X. They project for 6.14 runs scored-the only team over 6 runs, the only team over 5.5 runs, and one of only four teams above 5 projected runs. They face Justin Dunn, who is one of the stone worst MLB starting pitchers and one of the absolute easiest to steal against. Tyler O’Neill (64%) is an elite stream. Dylan Carlson (55%), Lars Nootbar (25%), Brendan Donovan (17%), Nolan Gorman (14%), Yadier Molina (9%), and Paul DeJong (2%) are all great options as well, depending on who is in the lineup.

  • If you’re looking to shore up your pitching ratios as we head down the stretch, streaming relievers can be a valuable strategy. Some of the best relievers to stream today come from the San Diego Padres. They face a below-average San Francisco Giants offense in an elite pitchers park and with easily the best pitching weather of the day. San Fran projects for just 57 degree temperatures while everywhere else is over 70 (and half the slate is over 80).
