As we make our way into head-to-head fantasy baseball's Week 3, 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 adding for Week 3.

1. Jake Odorizzi, Minnesota Twins

Odorizzi has had an interesting start to the season (6.35 ERA, 1.15 WHIP), but he probably has the easiest two-start slate of any streaming option available this week. The 29-year-old righty will face a struggling Toronto Blue Jays squad in his first outing this Monday, followed by a start against the lowly Baltimore Orioles on Saturday. Odorizzi is owned in just 15 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues.

Reynaldo Lopez hasn't seen a great start to his 2019 campaign, owning a 12.15 ERA and an 0-2 record through his first three starts. However, he has a pretty good shot at getting in the win column twice this week. The 25-year-old righty has a favorable matchup against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday and an excellent matchup against a Detroit Tigers team batting .191 on the year. Lopez is readily available in 93 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues.

3. Mike Leake, Seattle Mariners

Mike Leake has had a pretty good start to the 2019 campaign and could continue to build on it based on his upcoming week. The 31-year-old righty has a favorable matchup against a short-handed Cleveland Indians squad on Tuesday followed by a start against the Los Angeles Angels, who own a collective .582 OPS. Leake is owned in 22 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues and could provide your fantasy team with positive returns this week.
