Thursday Starting Pitcher Streaming Options (08/23/18)

Trevor Cahill – OAK – RHP (44%) @ MIN

Season Stats (15 GS) 5 W, 3.12 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 85 K/ 25 BB in 86 IP

Cahill was fantastic his last appearance, striking out 7 in 7 shutout innings. He has been (mostly) phenomenal when healthy this season. He is barely under a K an inning with some great K upside games under his belt, and he can get batters out on ground balls often as well, which is an especially good thing the way Oakland’s defense has been playing. The offense, too, has been one of the hottest in baseball the last few months. Overall, a very good outlook against a much weaker Twins offense, and Cahill should provide good Ks, good ratios and a good chance of a win.

(The Twins rank 8th in the league with a .259 AVG and 8th in the league with a .767 OPS at home this season. They also rank 18th in the league with a .247 AVG and 10th in the league with a .736 OPS vs RHP).

Tyler Glasnow – TB – RHP (26%) vs KC
Season Stats (4 GS) 0 W, 3.38 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, 24 K/ 6 BB in 18 IP

Glasnow has certainly made the Pirates look like fools for giving him up in the trade that sent (the now injured) Chris Archer to Pittsburgh. Glasnow’s biggest problem in the majors had been control, and he’s certainly not been pestered by it in Tampa. They have also managed to stretch him out, as he went 6 plus innings in his last appearance. While he struggled against Boston, they are the best team in the league right now, and he should have better luck against the Royals. The K upside is fantastic, and if he can stay on target, he should also provide good ratios and a good chance of a win.

(The Royals rank 23rd in the league with a .237 AVG and 26th in the league with a .671 OPS on the road this season. They also rank 24th in the league with a .243 AVG and 27th in the league with a .684 OPS vs RHP).
