Post All-Star break fantasy baseball is back, and many owners are in the thick of an extended Week 15, which runs from Thursday, July 11 to Sunday, July 21, depending on league formats.

Here are three two-start pitchers that could be quality streaming options for fantasy owners in the latter half of Week 15.

3. Adam Plutko, Cleveland Indians

Adam Plutko has two juicy matchups this week, as the Cleveland Indians' starter is slated to face the Detroit Tigers twice. Plutko is 3-1 with 1.16 WHIP this season, and he could perform well against a Tigers' offense that averages 3.61 runs per game this season (No. 29 in MLB).

2. Griffin Canning, Los Angeles Angels

Griffin Canning is having a solid rookie season for the Los Angeles Angels. He has 69 strikeouts in just 65 innings pitched and a WHIP of 1.09. He is only owned in 36 percent Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues and gets two starts against the Houston Astros and the Seattle Mariners this week. Even though Canning will have to contend with some tough opponents, he could be a great source of strikeouts this week.

Another solid two-start option for the latter half of the extended Week 15 is Canning's opponent on Monday night, Brad Peacock. Peacock is scheduled to make his first start since coming off the 10-Day IL with a shoulder injury. He's 6-6 this season with a WHIP of 1.15 and 89 strikeouts in 85 innings pitched. After he faces the Angels, Peacock is slated to square off against the Texas Rangers on Saturday. Peacock has made one start against the Rangers this season, surrendering one run in 6 2/3 innings pitched, so he could provide fantasy owners with some solid value.
