3 Streaming Pitchers for the Final Days of the Fantasy Baseball Finals

This is it. The last weekend of the fantasy baseball season. The last three days that can make or break a championship team. If you're like me, at this point of the season you're in need of quality pitching to take down your opponent. The waiver wire is surely talent-thin by now, but there are still a few pitchers available that can do just enough to carry your team to victory.


Here are three streaming options you need to consider this weekend

1. Reynaldo Lopez, Chicago White Sox at Minnesota Twins, Friday, Sept. 28

You better get on this one quick since Reynaldo Lopez takes on the Twins this afternoon. How Lopez is available in nearly half of leagues across the board at this point is beyond me, but he's a must-add for anyone who needs a streamer this weekend. The 24-year-old right has been on a tear in September, owning a microscopic 0.67 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 27 innings in his four starts this month. Riding the hot hand is key when it comes to streaming starters and Lopez is as hot as they come. Pick him up on the coin-flip chance he's available.

2. Nathan Eovaldi, Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees, Saturday, Sept. 29

Despite a tough matchup against the New York Yankees, Nathan Eovaldi is a fantastic streaming option for anyone in need of an extra start. In his last two times toeing the rubber, Eovaldi owns an unreal 0.82 ERA with 15 strikeouts across 11 innings pitched, including six shutout innings against the Yankees in New York. Another shutout against the Bronx Bombers is unlikely, but considering he owns a sparkling 2.11 ERA in three starts against them this year, a quality start isn't out of the realm of possibility.

3. Ryan Borucki, Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays, Saturday, Sept. 29

He may have had a rough start to his major league career, but Ryan Borucki has really come into his own in September. The 24-year-old rookie has logged a quality start in each of his four starts this month and two of those quality starts have come against the Tampa Bay Rays, his opponent this Saturday. Getting a win when pitching opposite Rays ace Blake Snell is tough, but there's a good chance that Borucki logs another quality start, which is the least you can ask for out of a streamer.
