    Updated Two Start Pitchers for week 7 – fantasy baseball 2013 – waiver wire SP – streamer options

    Advertisement

    There were still a number of rainouts in week 6 as we press on into the month of May, meaning there were plenty of rotation changes for the week ahead.  Then there is the curious case of the Padres, who decided to simply change their rotation because they felt like it.

    If you are holding on to any Yankees or Indians on this list as a two start option, be advised that neither team has officially confirmed their choices for the doubleheader Monday, meaning the projected starters are pure speculation on my part, and clearly subject to change.

    News and notes – 2 start pitchers – week 7 – fantasy baseball 2013

    Best waiver wire SP for week 7 – streaming options

    John Lackey – SP – Boston Red Sox

    I know, this one surprises me as well, be John Lackey has apparently been drinking the same juice as Josh Beckett and Clay Buccholz, because he has been on fire.  Lackey is currently striking out over a batter per inning, with an ERA under 3.  The win loss is clearly a fluky statistic, but Lackey gets to face the lackluster Twins in his second matchup of week 7, making him a decent waiver wire grab in mixed league play.

    Hector Santiago – SP – Chicago White Sox

    This could be your one and only chance to grab Santiago for a two start week, as John Danks is expected back soon, and the White Sox will have to make a decision about whether or not to send Hector back to the bullpen.  With an ERA under 2, nearly a strikeout per inning, and 2 favorable matchups in week 7, Santiago should be flying off the waiver wire as a solid streamer option for the week ahead.

    Justin Grimm – SP – Texas Ranger

    The young SP for the Rangers will clearly go through growing pains as most young pitchers do, but he has the strikeouts rolling right now for a pretty good team in the Rangers, meaning the wins will be a possibility every time he takes the mound.  Two tough matchups in week 7 with the A’s and Tigers moves Grimm down a little bit on my recommended list, but if you need K’s and a shot at a win, he makes a decent deep league pickup off the waiver wire.

    And I’m free…. free fallin’

    R.A. Dickey – SP – Toronto Blue Jays

    Time to start wondering if 2012 was a fluke.  Dickey just doesn’t have the same stuff this year, and is entering that dangerous “droppable” territory that you never expect from a guy that was drafted in the top 20 pitchers this season.  I say sell high if at all possible, it looks like he isn’t up to the task of pitching in the AL East.

    Dan Haren – SP – Washington Nationals

    Most owners knew what they were getting when they drafted Haren, and yet he continues to be owned in a high number of leagues.  His strikeout totals aren’t exactly impressive, and the ERA/WHIP will clearly leave something to be desired.  Haren should only be considered a “must-start” in the deepest of formats for week 7.
