Matchups for the fantasy baseball pitcher streamers are subject to change, especially late in the week, so double-check to make sure that pitcher is going on that day.

Monday, August 26:

Brett Oberholtzer at CHW: Oberholtzer has been great since getting the call, putting up a 2.91 ERA with 22 K/5 BB over his first 34 Big League innings. He’s 2-1 with a 2.29 ERA and 12 K over his last three starts and will face the 29th ranked offense in the league.

Tyson Ross at ARI: Ross has put up a 2.66 ERA with 20 K/6 BB over his last three starts (20.1 IP) and has not allowed a single run over nine career innings against the DBacks (8 K/1 BB).

Tuesday, August 27:

Alex Wood vs. CLE: Wood has been unhittable, putting up a 0.98 ERA with 20 K/3 BB over his last three starts and will face an Indians offense that ranks 24th in the league in August.

Joe Kelly vs. CIN: Kelly is 2-0 with a 3.12 ERA over his last three starts and has a 3.01 ERA on the season. In five innings pitched against the Reds, Kelly has allowed just one run while striking out six.

Wednesday, August 28:

Doug Fister vs. OAK: Fister has been solid, putting up a 3.54 ERA on the season and a 3.86 over his last three starts. He’s always done well against the A’s, posting a 2.45 ERA and 44 K/15 BB over 66 IP.

Jarred Cosart at CHW: Cosart has been stellar, putting up a 1.60 ERA over 45 IP since arriving in the Bigs. As I noted above, the White Sox offense has scored more runs than only the Marlins.

Andrew Albers vs. KC: In Albers’ first start against the Royals, he put up 8.1 scoreless innings while allowing just four hits and a walk. Like Cosart, he won’t strike out many batters but he has a tendency of going deep into games.

Martin Perez at SEA: Perez is 3-0 with a 3.13 ERA and 16 K/5 BB over his last three starts and owns a career 2.49 ERA in three starts against the Mariners. Seattle’s offense ranks 25th in the league in August.

Thursday, August 29:

Sam Deduno vs. KC: Deduno has been solid this season, owning a 3.69 ERA on the year. He’s done very well against the Royals, going 3-1 with a 2.16 ERA and 15 K in four starts. He’s held the Royals to five runs over 18.2 IP this season.

Friday, August 30:

Miguel Gonzalez at NYY: Gonzalez owns a 3.38 ERA with 15 K/6 BB over his last three starts and owns a career 2.48 ERA with 30 K/11 BB over 32.2 IP vs. the Yankees. He’s yet to give up more than two earned runs in three starts against the Bombers this year.

Randall Delgado vs. SF: Delgado owns a 0.77 ERA in 11.2 innings against the Giants and San Francisco ranks 23rd in the league in offense this month.

Saturday, August 31:

Dallas Keuchel vs. SEA: Keuchel was impressive as he threw seven scoreless innings against the Rangers in his last time out. He put up a similarly impressive effort in his last outing against the Mariners, allowing just one run while striking out seven over eight innings.

Andrew Cashner at LAD: I don’t like the idea of streaming pitchers against the hot Dodgers but Cashner is a) equally as hot with a 1.71 ERA and 17 K/3 BB over his last three starts and b) owns a 1.80 ERA with 16 K over 20 IP against the Dodgers.

Sunday, September 1:

Jon Niese at WAS: Niese has improved lately, going 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA and 23 K/5 BB over his last three starts. He’s also done well against the Nats, going 3-0 with a 2.37 ERA and 39 K/6 BB over 38 IP against Washington.

Alex Wood vs. MIA: Wood makes his second appearance this week and with a 0.98 ERA and 20 K/3 BB in his last three starts and a 0.00 ERA in nine career innings against the hapless Marlins, he’s a great bet.

Kevin Correia at TEX: I’ve been having luck going with Correia over the last couple weeks, even against the Tigers, and he’s put up a 2.57 ERA over his last three starts. In 15.1 IP against the Rangers, Correia owns a 1.76 ERA and 11 K/3 BB.
