FANFOOD 2 for 2 week 19











Welcome as we go 2 for 2 for the nineteenth 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 Hamburger Hot Dish.

Lets get to it.






FANFOOD 2 for 2 week 19



1. Doug Fister

Week 19 Starts: Tue-@NYM (DeGrom), Sun-PIT (Volquez)


Notes from around the web:


from rotoworld:
Doug Fister was once again on point, limiting the Mets to just one unearned run over 7 1/3 innings en route to his 11th win on Wednesday.
The right-hander held the Mets to six singles while issuing exactly zero walks and punching out seven batters. Over his last eight starts, including Wednesday’s effort, Fister has a 1.96 ERA in 55 innings. On the season overall, Fister has a 2.49 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 66/13 K/BB ratio. Fister will match up against the Mets again in his next start, but the contest will be held at Citi Field.
Nationals right-hander Doug Fister won after allowing one unearned run on six hits and no walks with seven strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings against the Mets on Wednesday.Fister’s seven K’s set a new season best, as he hadn’t even fanned six batters in game since all the way back on May 31. The big righty has been terrific all season, but that is doubly true for his past eight games. Fister has gone 6-1 in that stretch, posting a 1.96 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP across 55 masterful innings. Now 11-3 with a 2.49 ERA on the year, Fister will be a must-start in all formats for a rematch against the Mets at Citi Field on Aug. 12.
from cbssports:
Nationals pitcher Doug Fister earned a win Wednesday, surrendering just one unearned run on six hits in 7 1/3 innings and striking out seven in his team’s 7-1 victory over the Mets. Fister (11-3) came out of the game after a single and an error put two men on base with one out in the eighth, and one of those runners came around to score, charging the starter with his only run of the night. He hasn’t given up more than two earned runs in five straight starts and now owns a 2.49 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 66:13 K:BB ratio in 104 2/3 innings. Fister is slated to face the Mets again Tuesday.



2. Jonathon Niese

Week 19 Starts: Mon-@PHI (Buchanan), Sat-CHC (Arrieta)


Notes from around the web:


from rotoworld:
Jon Niese struggled in six innings of work Wednesday against the Nationals, surrendering six runs. Five of the six runs came on home runs: a two-run shot to Adam LaRoche in the first inning, and a three-run blast to Danny Espinosa in the sixth. The Nats collected eight hits and a pair of walks against the lefty, who finished the night with two strikeouts. Niese has been shaky on the mound lately, and now owns a 3.51 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a 90/34 K/BB ratio. He’ll try to rebound next Monday in a road start against the Phillies.
Mets left-hander Jon Niese lost after allowing six runs on eight hits and two walks with two strikeouts in six innings against the Nationals on Wednesday.The struggling Niese has now lost all four of his starts since returning from the disabled list, putting up a 5.76 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP across those 25 innings. As a result, he has seen his ERA climb from 2.96 to its current 3.51. Considering how shaky he has looked recently, Niese will be difficult to trust in what should be a favorable matchup against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park on Aug. 11 Risk-averse owners may want to keep the lefty on the bench.
from cbsports:
Jonathon Niese took a loss Wednesday, giving up six earned runs on eight hits and two walks in six innings and striking out two in his team’s 7-1 defeat against the Nationals. Niese (5-8) has now lost four straight starts, though Monday’s dud was his first time allowing more than four earned runs this season. He gave up three runs in the first inning alone, two on a home run, and surrendered a three-run home run in his sixth and final frame. Niese owns a 3.51 ERA and 90:34 K:BB ratio in 128 1/3 innings. He’s scheduled to face the Phillies Monday.

SP Notes:

The Baltimore Orioles were scheduled to start Kevin Gausman on Aug. 10 and Bud Norris on Aug. 11, giving them a six-man rotation for now. Gausman would line up for a Sunday start in Week 19, but the team could revert to five starters, with him, Ubaldo Jimenez or Norris in danger of being removed.

The Chicago White Sox, who have off days on Monday and Thursday, could skip either Scott Carroll or Hector Noesi in their rotation, in which case Chris Sale would pick up a second start in Week 19.

The Cleveland Indians have already removed Danny Salazar and Josh Tomlin from their rotation in the past week, will give Carlos Carrasco an Aug. 10 spot start and have Monday and Thursday off days that afford them a four-man Week 19 rotation if they wish. Expect them to go that route, though it’s hardly a guarantee T.J. House will pitch Sunday, and Carrasco’s Saturday start isn’t entirely assured, either.

As of publishing time, the Minnesota Twins were expected to start Trevor May on Aug. 9, likely lining him up for a Friday start during Week 19.

The New York Yankees are expected to activate Michael Pineda (shoulder) on Wednesday, after the right-hander makes a rehabilitation start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Aug. 8. Esmil Rogers was to make a spot start for the major league team Aug. 8, and he’d be the fallback should Pineda suffer a setback.

The Seattle Mariners have done much rotation shuffling recently, demoting Roenis Elias to Triple-A Tacoma for the entirety of Week 19, and adding an Aug. 10 spot starter (Erasmo Ramirez or Taijuan Walker) to line Felix Hernandez, Chris Young and Hisashi Iwakuma up for the week-opening Toronto Blue Jays series. With a week-ending series at the Detroit Tigers, the team will almost assuredly go with four starters this week, though the M’s could give Ramirez/Walker a Saturday start, in which case Chris Young would lose his second start.

Mike Minor, who was skipped during fantasy’s Week 18, is expected to rejoin the Atlanta Braves’ rotation on Tuesday, resulting in a two-start week for him.
Roberto Hernandez, who was acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers from the Philadelphia Phillies on Aug. 7, was scheduled to make his Dodgers debut on Aug. 8, setting him up for a Wednesday start during Week 19. Hernandez replaces Josh Beckett, who landed on the DL with a hip injury.

The Miami Marlins, who designated Jacob Turner for assignment on Aug. 5, needed a fifth starter for Aug. 9. Brad Penny was considered the favorite for that spot, which next arrives on Thursday of Week 19.

Mike Fiers was scheduled to join the Milwaukee Brewers’ rotation on Aug. 9, replacing the injured Matt Garza (oblique). It is presumed Fiers will next pitch Thursday of Week 19, though Marco Estrada could be a candidate if needed.

Sean O’Sullivan, who made a spot start for the Phillies on Aug. 7 following the Roberto Hernandez trade, will presumably occupy Hernandez’s former rotation spot for the time being. That spot next arrives on Tuesday.

Dreaming of Streaming


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



Kyle Gibson (@HOU, Wednesday): Again, Bauer is a compelling candidate on this day, but how about Gibson? He’s coming off back-to-back quality starts and tossed seven shutout, three-hit frames against these Houston Astros on June 7. It also helps that his go-to strikeout pitch is the slider, because no team in baseball has a higher rate of misses on swings against sliders this season than the Astros (39 percent).

Tom Koehler (ARI, Saturday): As mentioned, Koehler has outstanding numbers at Marlins Park, and he’s sure to perform considerably better against the Arizona Diamondbacks in their rematch, being that their offense has been depleted since.

Jonathon Niese (@PHI, Monday): Hutchison and Koehler also start Monday and warrant your attention first, but Niese’s Citizens Bank Park history warrants your consideration. Since the beginning of 2012, he’s 4-for-5 in quality starts with a 2.20 ERA in the Philadelphia ballpark.

Kyle Hendricks (@NYM, Sunday): The New York Mets have been baseball’s weakest-hitting team since the All-Star break, with .208/.271/.303 slash rates (.254 wOBA), and Hendricks rode a streak of four consecutive quality starts into Week 19.

J.A. Happ (@SEA, Tuesday): He has back-to-back outstanding outings, totaling 18 K’s in 15 innings while allowing only three earned runs (1.80 ERA), and he’s going up against a lefty-heavy Seattle Mariners lineup. Only the Padres (.273) have a lower team wOBA against southpaws than the Mariners (.281).

Trevor May (KC, Friday): He’s inexperienced, yes, but perhaps the Kansas City Royals will be ill-prepared for him. They have the majors’ third-worst team wOBA versus right-handers since July 1 (.283), and overall for the season they have the third-worst home run/fly ball rate (7.6 percent), which is a good sign for a fly ball-oriented right-hander working in a ballpark with a spacious right field.

Jorge De La Rosa (CIN, Thursday): He has three consecutive quality starts at Coors Field — and five in his past six starts overall — and will be facing a Cincinnati Reds team that has mere .223/.269/.326 slash rates since the All-Star break.
