Head-to-head fantasy baseball's Week 9 is finally here, and you should have a pretty solid idea of your team's strengths and weaknesses by now. For those in need of some quality pitching, there are a few two-start pitchers that could give your fantasy team some high-end production this upcoming week.

With that in mind, here are three two-start pitchers worth adding for Week 9.

Gio Gonzales has two tough road starts against the Minnesota Twins and the Pittsburgh Pirates this week, but he's been dominant outside of Miller Park in 2019. So far, the veteran lefty owns 1.69 ERA in the three road starts he's made this season. Gonzalez is also available in 67.0 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues, making him a great target.

2. Lance Lynn, Texas Rangers

With starts against the Kansas City Royals and Seattle Mariners, Lance Lynn could be the most underrated two-start streamer you can add this week. While consistency has been an issue, the 32-year-old righty has been pitching quite well lately, tallying 16 total strikeouts over his last two starts, surrendering just three earned runs during that span. Lynn is available in 78.0 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues, and he's a great unheralded pickup.

Jeff Samardzija is quietly having a good bounce-back 2019 campaign, posting a 3.27 ERA with 41 strikeouts thus far. With starts against the Miami Marlins (No. 30 in runs per game) and the Baltimore Orioles (No. 24 in runs per game) slated for this week, the 34-year-old righty is a great target. Samardzjia is currently unowned in 86.0 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues, so he's likely available in your league as well.
