As we make our way into head-to-head fantasy baseball's Week 19, there are a few two-start pitchers that should be quality streaming options for those in need of some pitching help this upcoming week.

With that in mind, here are three two-start pitchers worth a waiver wire add for Week 19.

1. Brendan McKay, Tampa Bay Rays

Brendan McKay could be a difference-making two-start streamer in Week 19. The rookie right-hander, who is available in 63 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues, has a favorable start on the road against a free-swinging San Diego Padres club that averages 9.68 strikeouts per game (No. 27 in MLB). He also gets a home start against a Detroit Tigers team that owns a collective .683 OPS (No. 29 in MLB) on the season, coming into Sunday's MLB action.

2. Yusei Kikuchi, Seattle Mariners

Yusei Kikuchi hasn't had the season that many Mariners fans expected him to have, but he could make a fantasy impact this upcoming week. The 28-year-old southpaw, who is available in 70 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues, will toe the rubber against the aforementioned Tigers on the road, along with a home start on Sunday against a Toronto Blue Jays team that's batting .237 (No. 29 in MLB) coming into play Sunday.

3. Zach Plesac, Cleveland Indians

Zach Plesac faces two tough teams in the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees this coming week, but he's been good enough recently that he's worth an add off the waiver wire. Owned in 41 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues, Plesac has a 2.00 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break to go along with a 3-0 record and a 1.15 WHIP. Despite facing the Red Sox and Yankees, Plesac could be a nice two-start streaming option in Week 19.
