FANFOOD 2 for 2 week 11











Welcome as we go 2 for 2 for the 11th time this season. Here is everything you need to know about this coming weeks pitching matchups and our 2 choices for pitchers that have two favorable starts on the schedule. These are the pitchers that you may consider adding to your weekly roster or ones that you may want to pick up and stream a start. If you are new to this game or unfamiliar with the strategy of streaming starting pitchers, click here for a refresher and some great links you can use.


Streaming is using as many starting pitchers as you can to try to accumulate as many counting stats as possible (Wins and Ks primarily). There is nothing wrong with streaming, if the leagues rules allow it. It could be done by any owner during the season, so you need to be informed.


In this article you will find the FANFOOD Top 10 Pitchers with two starts, followed by a list of all of them. The FANFOOD 2 for 2 Starting Pitchers will be not be chosen from the “MUST STARTS”, those pitchers will always be in your lineup. They may be the Starting Pitchers outside the TOP 10 that you probably have on your bench or ones that you could find on the waiver wire. They are guys that we feel will give you two  quality starts.  [ +/- 6 IP,  +/- 3 ER ].  


Also included in this article are some SP notes to help you decide on next weeks roster, followed by one streaming starter for each day of the week that the stat geeks over at the Muthaship think will be a viable option for your fantasy roster in the coming days. And if all this wasn’t enough, it’s followed by a great recipe. This time it’s Guinness Beef Jerky.

Lets get to it.






FANFOOD 2 for 2 week 11



1. Mike Minor


Week 11 Starts: Tue-@COL (Nicasio), Sun-LAA (Richards)


notes from around the web:

from rotoworld:
Mike Minor was a tough-luck loser Wednesday, striking out 10 while tossing seven innings of one-run ball against the Mariners. A fourth-inning RBI single from Cole Gillespie was the lone blemish on Minor’s line, but it was enough with Hisashi Iwakuma shutting down the Braves’ offense. Minor is now 2-4 despite a 3.07 ERA and 40/12 K/BB ratio over 44 innings.
Braves left-hander Mike Minor lost after allowing one run on five hits and three walks with 10 strikeouts in seven innings against the Mariners on Wednesday.Minor looked strong at home Wednesday, but he was saddled with his fourth loss after receiving no offensive support. Wednesday’s outing marked the southpaw’s fifth straight 100-plus pitch effort, and he has a 1.87 ERA during the span. Minor has been a major force out of the Atlanta rotation since coming off the DL in early May, registering six quality starts out of a possible seven. However, the Atlanta offense has not been strong during his outings, so wins have been hard to come by for the 26-year-old. Next for Minor is an away start against the Rockies on June 10.
from cbssports:
Braves left-hander Mike Minor performed quite well in front of a home crowd Wednesday against Seattle. The only problem was that counterpart Hisashi Iwakuma pitched a little bit better. Minor surrendered just one run on five hits in seven innings with 10 strikeouts. But three of those his, including an RBI single by Cole Gillespie, came in the fourth inning. That was all that was needed for Minor to take his fourth loss in six decisions despite a fine ERA of 3.07. He will hope for better luck Tuesday in Colorado.



2. Ian Kennedy


Week 11 Starts:

Tue-@PHI (Burnett), Sun-@NYM (Matsuzaka)


Notes from around the web:

from rotoworld:
Ian Kennedy improved to 5-6, allowing two runs over six innings as the Padres defeated the Pirates 3-2 on Wednesday. Kennedy narrowly outdueled an effectively-wild Francisco Liriano. The right-hander allowed five hits — including an Andrew McCutchen solo homer — while walking one and striking out seven. Kennedy now has eight quality starts out of 13 along with a 3.39 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and an 88/20 K/BB ratio. He’ll face the Phillies on the road in his next start.
Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy won after allowing two runs on five hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in six innings vs. the Pirates on Wednesday.It was a typical workmanlike performance for Kennedy, who has now won three straight starts thanks to a 2.00 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP over that 18-inning stretch. The righty has also fanned 22 batters over that span, giving him 88 K’s in 79 2/3 innings this year and keeping him on pace for his first career campaign with better than a strikeout per inning. Kennedy will have a great shot for a fourth straight victory when he heads to Philadelphia to face the light-hitting Phillies on June 10.
from cbssports:
Ian Kennedy secured a win Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and one walk in six innings while striking out seven in his team’s 3-2 victory over the Pirates. Kennedy (5-6) has given up just four earned runs in his last three starts, striking out 22 in the process and picking up three wins over the stretch. He owns a 3.39 ERA and 88:20 K:BB ratio in 79 2/3 innings. Kennedy is scheduled to take on the Phillies Tuesday.

SP Notes:

Miguel Gonzalez (side) was scratched from his June 5 start, causing the Baltimore Orioles to move Chris Tillman up to that day. That left their June 7 spot vacant — that spot next arrives on Thursday of Week 11 — with Kevin Gausman and T.J. McFarland the most likely candidates to assume either turn if Gonzalez isn’t ready by then.

Clay Buchholz (knee) was scheduled for a simulated game on June 7 and Felix Doubront (shoulder) made a rehabilitation start for Double-A Portland on June 5, giving either of them an outside chance at being ready to rejoin the Boston Red Sox’s rotation late in Week 11. Brandon Workman, scheduled for Sunday, would be the most likely pitcher bumped; keep in mind he has a six-game suspension to serve.

Zach McAllister (back) made a rehabilitation start for Class A Lake County on June 5, the first of a projected two such appearances before the Indians activate him. He’d be on a four-days’-rest schedule that would line him up for Sunday of Week 11, so he’s a possibility to rejoin the Indians by the weekend.

The Angels could use Thursday’s off day to skip Matt Shoemaker, their fifth starter who is on schedule for Friday of Week 11. That would give Tyler Skaggs a second start this week (Sunday at Atlanta).

After Erasmo Ramirez pitched poorly on June 3, the Mariners wouldn’t announce a starter for Monday (and therefore also Saturday) of Week 11; they could use Hisashi Iwakuma on four days’ rest then and push the spot back a day if they wish. Ramirez is also a candidate, as could be Taijuan Walker (shoulder), who made a rehabilitation start for Triple-A Tacoma on June 3. The team could also go with a “bullpen day,” with Tom Wilhelmsen a possible starter in that arrangement.

Mat Latos’ (knee, elbow) rehabilitation start for Triple-A Louisville on June 4 was limited due to a calf cramp, and it’s unclear whether he’ll rejoin the Cincinnati Reds’ rotation early in Week 11 or make another rehab start to first boost his pitch count. The team hasn’t announced yet when he’ll return or whom he’ll replace, most likely Tony Cingrani or Alfredo Simon.

With Jordan Lyles (broken hand) headed to the DL, the Colorado Rockies will need a starter for Monday’s and Saturday’s games. Franklin Morales, who was bumped from the rotation for Eddie Butler, could rejoin the starting five in those spots, or the team could summon Tyler Matzek or Jon Gray from the minors.

The San Diego Padres, who demoted both Jesse Hahn and Donn Roach to the minors within the past week, were expected to have Andrew Cashner back in their rotation on June 7, lining him up for a Friday start in Week 10. The team can push back their other rotation opening as far as Saturday, at which point either Roach is eligible to be recalled or Tim Stauffer could get another turn.

With Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) scheduled for a rehabilitation start for Class A Potomac on June 6, the Washington Nationals could have him back in their rotation as soon as Wednesday of Week 11. If Gonzalez needs another rehab start or suffers a setback, though, Blake Treinen would presumably start Thursday, with Tanner Roark moving up a day to Wednesday.

Streamer’s Delight


Seven streaming candidates, one for each day of the week, and ranked in terms of overall quality.


Jose Quintana (KC, Friday): He has five quality starts in his past eight games against the Kansas City Royals, his ERA 3.59 and WHIP 1.20 in those eight contests.

Roenis Elias (NYY, Thursday): The New York Yankees have 68 K’s in at-bats that ended with a curveball, seventh-most in the majors, and Elias struck them out 10 times in allowing two runs in seven innings in their last meeting on May 1.

Marcus Stroman (MIN, Wednesday): It’s a home game, and Stroman has the breaking pitches (curveball, slider) to fluster a Twins team that has struck out the fourth-most often this season (22.8 percent of their PAs).

Travis Wood (@PHI, Sunday): He’s a perfect 3-for-3 in quality starts in his career at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park, his ERA 2.11 and WHIP 0.80 in those games.

Jarred Cosart (TB, Saturday): Six of his past eight games have resulted in quality starts, and the opposing Tampa Bay Rays have baseball’s second-worst wOBA in road games (.279) while averaging just 2.9 runs per road game.

Jake Odorizzi (STL, Tuesday): This Cardinals team has the majors’ fifth-worst wOBA in road games (.287), and Odorizzi has a 2.88 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 11.88 strikeouts per nine innings in five starts at home.

Vidal Nuno (@KC, Monday): Monday is a bad day for streaming, so pick the opponent more so than the pitcher. The Royals have averaged just 3.6 runs per game with a .275 wOBA in their past six series (May 15-June 5).
