A lot of MLB teams have light weeks, with some only playing five games, putting starting pitchers at even more of a premium in Week 5. With that in mind, here are three two-start pitchers that can be had off the waiver wire this week.

1. Mike Soroka, Atlanta Braves

Mike Soroka gets the San Diego Padres on Monday and the Miami Marlins at Saturday, lining him up against two of the worst offenses in baseball this week. In his first two starts of the season, Soroka gave up one run and struck out at least six. Expect more of the same with two juicy matchups this week.

Zach Davies has two home starts versus Colorado on Monday and the New York Mets on Saturday. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run at home in two starts this season and has given up at most two runs in his five starts on the year. Another two solid outings could be in the cards this week.

3. Tyson Ross, Detroit Tigers

Finding a Tuesday-Sunday starter from the waiver wire is tough this week, due to the light schedule, but Tyson Ross is serviceable enough to be worth an add. He gets the Phillies on Tuesday and is home against Kansas City on Sunday. The start against the Royals, a team he is 3-0 against in his career with a 2.37 ERA, is enough to make him worth an add in Week 5.
