Streamers Daily Fantasy Baseball – Wire Pick Waiver for Tuesday 7/20
Welcome to another edition of our daily fantasy baseball streamers! Do you play in leagues with daily moves and looking to strengthen those rosters? At RotoBaller, we’re here for you and all of your streaming needs. Whether you’re just trying to grab that elusive class win or trying to catch Ross Stripling last night, we can help. Every day, RotoBaller will provide you with some of the best streaming options to consider in the daily shallow and deep fantasy baseball leagues. Streaming hitters and pitchers to tap into games are important in helping you win your league.
Knowing your league is important if you are going to broadcast. I’m not just talking about the teams your teammates are rooting for. I’m talking about whether strikeouts count against you for hitters or whether the field stats are included. Most importantly, you need to know how many trades you have per week. You don’t want to explode your allowance in a few days. You can also use these recommendations to help you build your DFS ranges. This article will use the registered percentages and eligibility for ESPN league positions.
We only have four pitchers that belong to over 90% of ESPN leagues. Six others are held in more than half of the leagues. We come to the stage or rotations where there are fewer aces. We have two-thirds of the launchers to choose from today, so we could have some really good streaming options.
Editor’s Note: Our amazing team of editors received 11 award nominations, industry-leading, by the Fantasy Sports Writers Association, including Baseball Writers of the Year, Soccer Writers of the Year, Baseball Article of the Year and much more! Make sure to follow their reviews, rankings and tips throughout the year, and win big with RotoBaller!
7/20 Batting Streamers – Shallow Leagues
Luis Urias (2B / SS / 3B, RHB, MIL) – 49.1% enrolled
Match: vs. KC LHP Mike Minor
Urias started his recall for a superb first half against the Reds. He had six hits in the three-game series with four runs scored, one homerun and three RBIs. This Milwaukee offense as a whole is looking pretty good lately. The minor can be obtained, especially by right handed hitters. If you have a struggling midfielder, replace them with Urias. You will be glad you did. He’s been a weekly run-off target by Rotoballer for five weeks now.
Ty France (1B / 2B, RHB, MER) – 43.4% enrolled
Match: at COL RHP German Marquez
Marquez was turned off last month, but the pen behind him is still 50 terrible shades and that game is at Coors Field. France went crazy for the Angels in Anaheim coming out of the break with seven hits in three games, including one home run, three runs scored and five RBIs. Sending him to Coors should improve his stats further, meaning France are a good choice for a few games this week.
Jed Lowrie (2B, RHB, OAK) – 41.1% enrolled
Match: against LAA LHP José Suarez
Lowrie hit the break on a tear, on a six-game streak in which he hit .417 with two homers, six runs batted in and three runs against the Rangers and Astros. He came out of the break with a home run, his third in the last three games. That streak ended on Saturday as Lowrie did not start the game and recorded one out during his piecemeal appearance. I’ll give him a mulligan even if the MLB doesn’t want it. Lowrie is still hitting .414 in his nine-game * streak with three homers, nine runs batted in and five runs scored. It won’t last forever, but Lowrie can give a nice boost when he’s this hot.
JD Davis (3B, RHB, NYM) – 31.9% enrolled
Match: at CIN LHP Wade Miley
Wow, a guy goes on IL and you all think he’s dead. This is the only explanation I have for the lukewarm ownership of Davis. He returned from IL when baseball resumed Friday and posted one out as a pinched hitter. Since then, Davis has four hits in ten tries with a pair of home runs, four runs batted in and three runs scored. Mets are healthy, and they have been shown to be dangerous when healthy.
Akil Baddoo (OF, LHB, DET) – 31.3% enrolled
Match: vs TEX RHP Matt Dunning
No, you are not going crazy. You get an extra one today. Call it a justification. At Rotoballer, we’ve been pitching Baddoo as a waiver pickup for the past couple of weeks, and sadly not many people have noticed. Baddoo came out of the break on an absolute tear. He has five hits in three games with a homer, four runs scored, seven runs batted in and one steal. He leads a suddenly dangerous formation in Detroit. Don’t sleep on him anymore. He will be 80% held within a week.
7/20 Batting Streamers – Deeper Leagues
Miguel Rojas (SS, RHB, MIA) – 19.8% enrolled
Match: at WAS RHP Paulo Espino
The Marlins have played five games since the break and Rojas has at least one hit in each of them. Add that to the modest two-game hitting streak he entered the break with and Rojas now has a hitting every day for a week in a row. He’s hitting .483 with a home run, three RBIs, a steal and two runs scored in that span. Considering the way the balls are flying out of Nationals Park right now, I can see Rojas having another strong game in what is essentially a bullpen game for Washington.
Gavin sheets (1B, LHB, CWS) – 5.1% enrolled
Match: v MIN RHP Bailey Ober
Sheets appears to be in a squad situation, but he’s on the safe side and does well when he plays. He’s slammed two home runs and scored five in his two starts since the break. He should start with another (medium) right-hander on the mound for Minnesota. Look for the hot shots to continue.
Nicky Lopez (2B / SS, LHB, KC) – 4.2% enrolled
Match: at MIL LHP Eric Lauer
Hey, don’t laugh. Lopez came out of the break with five hits in 11 batting with four runs scored and four runs batted in. He’s got no power – the guy has three career homers in 786 sticks – but homers are only one of five categories. Lopez gives you something in the other four.
Wilmer Difo (2B / 3B / OF, SHB, PIT) – 3.1% enrolled
Match: at ARI RHP Taylor Widener
Difo’s recent six-game hitting streak began with a hitting on July 10. He’s been hitting .526 since then with two homers, five RBIs and five runs scored. Tell me you can’t use this in your deeper leagues. I certainly can (and I am).
Streamers Pitcher for 7/20 – Shallow Leagues
Tarik Skubal (LHP, DET) – 35.1% enrolled
Match: against the rangers
Skubal stumbled a bit before the break, allowing eight points in two starts in July. I’ll give him a little assist since it was against the Twins and the White Sox. The Rangers are ready for today. As a team, they only hit 0.150 in four games after the all-star break. They were outnumbered last night by rookie Casey Mize in four innings and statistically the worst field reliever in baseball for five innings after that. I see a big rebound for Skubal here.
Streamers Pitcher for 7/20 – Deeper Leagues
Eric Lauer (LHP, MIL) – 9.1% enrolled
Match: vs. Kansas City
Lauer has allowed just two points combined in his last three starts. The start before that, he only allowed Coors three points. Lauer has also not allowed a homerun in the last three starts. Sometimes his rides still get a little out of hand, but there’s an offense from the Royals that things walk is an insult. They hit a lot and they lose the DH in Milwaukee. It should be a good evening as an introduction to Game 6 of the NBA Finals for Milwaukee fans.
José Suarez (LHP, LAA) – 6.3% enrolled
Match: in Oakland
Not so long ago, the Angels seemed to be hanging on to the straws of the rotation. Suddenly Alex Cobb remembered how to pitch and Suarez became a reliable part of the rotation. He’s had some control issues against Boston, but he’s pitched well against the Yankees and Seattle since joining the rotation. All told, Suarez allowed just four runs in 13.1 innings once back in the rotation. Again, it’s not a good day to broadcast strikeouts, but I’ll take the park upgrade with Suarez and the decent strikeout potential.
