We’ve listed every two start pitcher for the upcoming week with their probable starts and ownership percentage in our exclusive two start pitchers bullpen. See below for three pitchers available in around 50% of fantasy baseball leagues or more worth taking a flier on this week.
- Josh Outman, Oakland Athletics: I picked Outman up last week on one of my teams and he is still available in around 80% of fantasy leagues. He’s made 9 starts this season and is 3-0 with a 3.02 ERA, 42 strikeouts, and a 1.19 WHIP in 53.7 innings. All three of those wins have come since May 13. Over the last 30 days, his ERA has dropped from 4.41 to 3.02. He also has 26 of those 42 strikeouts over the last 30 days. He takes the mound Monday at home against Minnesota and Saturday on the road against the San Francisco Giants.
- Jeff Niemann, Tampa Bay Rays: Niemann is owned in just 7% of leagues! On the year he might not look that impressive – 5-4 / 3.77 / 39 / 1.37 in 59.7 innings. Over the last month, however, he’s won 3 of those 5, his ERA is 2.03, and his WHIP is 1.06. He takes the mound Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels and Sunday at home against the Washington Nationals.
- Scott Baker, Minnesota Twins: Baker got off to an awful start, failing to get his ERA under 9.00 before the end of April. He’s available in around 55% of leagues, and he is starting to show signs of his former self. Since May 3, however, his ERA has dropped around 3.50 runs and he struck out 10 in his last start June 4 against the Indians. His numbers are scary (3-6 / 5.88 / 49 / 1.24 in 59.7 innings) , but his matchups seem favorable in Week 10. He takes the mound Tuesday on the road against Oakland and Sunday on the road against the Chicago Cubs.
