Top 10 Starting and Relief Pitchers From Last Week (09/10/18 – 09/16/18)

The fantasy landscape can change drastically over the course of a week and especially with any league (especially deeper ones) it can be difficult to keep track of every performance worth noting.

We’ve done that work for you. Whether it’s hot bats to pick up or measuring the rising stock of players already owned, this is the rundown. Here’s a look at standouts over the past week by position.

Ty Buttrey – LAA – RP (21%)

Buttrey. Seriously, the puns are just pop(corn)ing off as we speak. Not only does he have a great name, but he’s in a great position, moving into the closer role for the Angels. He also has really solid stats on the season with 19 strikeouts over 15 innings and a 61% ground ball rate. The Angels aren’t in the race, but they can still chip in a couple save opportunities if you are desperate down your playoff stretch.

Jose Urena – MIA – SP (17%)

If you have been paying attention, this is Urena’s second back to back top 10 performance. In his last 3 starts, he has 16 Ks in 18 innings and a 1.47 ERA. Now, he has stranded 100% of the base runners who have got on base in that time period, which will not happen for long. But he does have a reasonable schedule rest of season and can be valuable if you need a boost or need to fill in some extra innings, a few Ks and some helpful ratios.
