3 Two-Start Pitchers to Pick Up Off Waivers for Fantasy Baseball Week 18
As we make our way into head-to-head fantasy baseball's Week 18, 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 18.
1. Andrew Casher, Boston Red Sox
Andrew Cashner has struggled since joining the Boston Red Sox (6.94 ERA), but his matchups this week could be just what he needs to get things back on track. The 32-year-old righty has a favorable start scheduled against a Kansas City Royals club that owns a collective .712 OPS (No. 25 in MLB) early in the week. His second projected start is against the Los Angeles Angels, and Cashner owns a 3.27 ERA in six career appearances (three starts) against the Halos. Cashner is available in 70 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues.
2. Aníbal Sánchez, Washington Nationals
Aníbal Sánchez has been decent for the Nationals this year and he could be a solid two-start streaming option for Week 18 as well. The 35-year-old righty has a favorable start against a San Francisco Giants club that's batting just .237 in 2019 (tied for No. 27 in MLB). His second start against the Mets could present more of a challenge, but New York owns a .753 OPS in 2019 (No. 17 in MLB), and Sánchez could have a solid performance at Citi Field. Sánchez is still available in 61 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues.
3. Dinelson Lamet, San Diego Padres
Dinelson Lamet has yet to go longer than five innings in a start this season, but his strikeout potential and easy schedule gives him a tremendous amount of upside heading into Week 18. The 27-year-old righty will toe the rubber on the road against a free-swinging Seattle Mariners club that averages 9.73 strikeouts per game (No. 28 in MLB). Lamet will also get a home start against a Colorado Rockies' lineup that has stuck out 588 times on the road this season (No. 30 in MLB). Lamet is available in 87 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball leagues.
