As always, Streamers are listed in the order in which I would use them
Chris Heston has come back to earth with back-to-back terrible outings, but in his defense they were at the ridiculously hitter friendly Coors Field and Great American Ballpark. On Thursday Heston and the Giants will play host to the Braves at the pitcher friendly AT&T Park in San Francisco. At home this season Heston has posted a 2.77 ERA and a 20:7 K:BB ratio. Chris has also been much better at night than he has during the day, as his night stats this season are phenomenal. In 34 and a third innings pitched he’s posted a 2.36 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, .203 BAA and a K:BB ratio of 30:5. Those stats make this matchup much juicier as the game on Thursday is a night game. It also helps that the Braves offense is in the bottom third of the league in all of the major hitting categories including the rank of 29th in HR’s. While they don’t strike out much, they also don’t take an inordinate amount of walks. Available in 76% of Yahoo leagues, he’s out there for most of you if you need him. I’d start him in every size mixed league and I would use him in DFS GPP’s as well, as he’s likely to be a solid +EV option that is dirt cheap.

Mike Wright was fantastic in both of his starts thus far this season, as he’s yet to allow a run over 14 and a third innings pitched. He blanked the Angels over 7 and a third and then blanked the Marlins over 7. While those offenses are not very good, neither are the White Sox, which is the team Wright will face on Thursday. As I’ve noted several times before in SP Streamers this season, the White Sox are a good team to stream against, especially with a RHP. So far this season the White Sox rank 27th in wRC+, 29th in runs scored and 28th in HR’s. Wright meanwhile has notched a 10:3 K:BB ratio and only allowed 7 hits so far this season. Available in 80% of Yahoo leagues, I’d start Wright in every size mixed league and consider him in DFS GPP’s if he’s cheap enough.
