Effectively monitoring the waiver wire can be one of the keys to a winning week in fantasy baseball. Picking up a two-start pitcher can give your team a potential boost in wins, innings pitched and strikeouts in any given week.
With that in mind, here are three two-start pitchers to pick up in Week 7.
3. Tyler Skaggs, SP, Los Angeles Angels
Tyler Skaggs has been up and down this season, but he could be worth an add in Week 7. The Los Angeles Angels starter opens the week on the road against the Minnesota Twins. While that matchup looks scary on paper, Skaggs posted a 2.08 ERA in two starts against Minnesota last season. Additionally, Skaggs has a 2.19 ERA in home games this season, which suggests he could pitch well at home against the Kansas City Royals.
2. Jerad Eickhoff, SP, Philadelphia Phillies
Jerad Eickoff has been remarkably effective since replacing Nick Pivetta, posting 1.50 ERA through five appearances this season. Eickhoff is not an elite source of strikeouts, but he's done a good job of keeping his opponents off the board. Given how effective Eickhoff has been thus far, he could be a great value in his starts against the Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies this week.
1. Brandon Woodruff, SP, Milwaukee Brewers
Brandon Woodruff faces the Philadelphia Phillies and the Atlanta Braves this week, and he's been a strikeout machine thus far. The Brewers' starter has struck out at least six batters in seven straight starts. Additionally, with the Milwaukee Brewers' explosive offense, he could get you a win or two this week. If you need strikeouts and wins, Woodruff is a great option.
