LWOS TWO START PITCHERS TO STREAM WEEK OF APRIL 19
Drew Pomeranz, SP, Oakland A’s, Yahoo! Availability 54%
Probable Starts: 4/21 @ Los Angeles Angels; 4/26 vs Houston
Drew Pomeranz has been good so far this season, going 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 12 innings. This week he has two enticing matchups, facing the Angels and Astros. In Pomeranz’s only career start vs the Angels in 2013, he went 7 innings and allowed no earned runs. And although Pomeranz didn’t have a great start vs the Astros on April 15 this year, they still pose a great matchup as they have the most strikeouts as a team this season. Pomeranz should be very effective this week and you should pick him up if he’s available.
Dan Haren, SP, Miami Marlins, Yahoo! Availability 88%
Probable Starts: 4/21 @ Philadelphia; 4/26 vs Washington
Dan Haren’s consistency early in 2015 has surprised many fantasy owners. This offseason he was contemplating retirement and didn’t want to pitch for any team expect for the Dodgers, seemingly eliminating any fantasy relevance he had. However, Haren decided to come back and has come back strong. Pitching to a very good 2.08 ERA and 0.69 WHIP, Haren has gone atleast 6 innings and given up less than 3 runs in each of his two start this year. This week he will face a horrible Phillies lineup that has scored the third least runs this season and a banged up Nationals team at home. I expect two more good starts for Haren and you should pick him up while he’s hot.
Brett Anderson, SP, Los Angeles Dodgers, Yahoo! Availability 94%
Probable Starts: 4/21 @ San Francisco; 4/26 @ San Diego
Brett Anderson has been very sharp in his first few starts of the season, collecting a win to go along with a 3.27 ERA. This week he faces a very weak Giants lineup and an inconsistent Padres lineup. The Giants have scored only 36 runs this year while striking out 92 times, both marks being in the top ten worst in baseball. The Padres offense has been hit or miss this year and if Anderson can contain San Diego’s power then he should be in for a good game. Add Anderson for this week and if he pitches well then keep him on your roster.
