Top 10 Starting & Relief Pitchers From Last Week (8/13/18 – 8/19/18)

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.

 

Starting Pitcher

 

  1. Jhoulys Chacin – MIL- RHP (62%)

2 W, 0.73 ERA, 0.69 WHIP, 13 K / 13 IP

Season Stats: (GS 27) 13 W, 3.58 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 122 K / 55 BB in 151 IP

Chacin has been a reliable streaming option for most of the season and is now approaching standard league value. If he can continue to limit his walks and manage a decent ERA the Brewers will provide substantial run support and win opportunities.

 

  1. Jacob Degrom – NYM – RHP (99%)

2 W, 1.15 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, 21 K / 15.2 IP

Season Stats: (GS 25) 8 W, 1.71 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, 204 K / 36 BB in 168 IP

 

  1. Clayton Kershaw – LAD – LHP (99%)

1 W, 1.20 ERA, 0.60 WHIP, 16 K / 15 IP

Season Stats: (GS 19) 6 W, 2.40 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 115 K / 20 BB in 116.1 IP

 

  1. Mike Foltynewicz – ATL – RHP (87%)

1 W, 0.60 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, 16 K / 15 IP

Season Stats: (GS 24) 10 W, 2.72 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 161 K / 54 BB in 139 IP

 

  1. German Marquez – COL – RHP (38%)

2 W, 1.93 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, 12 K / 14 IP

Season Stats: (GS 25) 11 W, 4.42 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, 151 K / 48 BB in 142.2 IP

Marquez make for a solid streaming option in standard leagues and is worth owning in deeper leagues. Like all Colorado pitchers it is best to stream them in road games and Marquez splits reflect that.

 

  1. Trevor Cahill – OAK – RHP (41%)

1 W, 0.00 ERA, 0.29 WHIP, 7 K / 7 IP

Season Stats: (GS 15) 5 W, 3.12 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 85 K / 25 BB in 86.2 IP

Cahill has been a solid pitcher when healthy and has had more strikeouts than expected. The Athletics provide exceptional run support and win opportunities and Cahill has been worth streaming in standard leagues and owning in deeper leagues all season.

 

  1. Rick Porcello – BOS – RHP (90%)

1 W, 1.29 ERA, 0.29 WHIP, 10 K / 7 IP

Season Stats: (GS 22) 8 W, 4.46 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, 122 K / 66 BB in 119 IP

  1. J.A. Happ – NYY – LHP (86%)

2 W, 1.46 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 12 K / 12.1 IP

Season Stats: (GS 24) 14 W, 3.48 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 153 K / 42 BB in 151.2 IP

 

  1. Aaron Nola – PHI – RHP (99%)

1 W, 1.29 ERA, 0.57 WHIP, 11 K / 7 IP

Season Stats: (GS 25) 14 W, 2.24 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 160 K / 44 BB in 161 IP

 

  1. Carlos Carrasco – CLE – RHP (99%)

0 W, 0.00 ERA, 0.57 WHIP, 6 K / 7 IP

Season Stats: (GS 23) 15 W, 3.33 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 161 K / 28 BB in 143.1IP

 

 

Relief Pitcher

 

  1. Jose Leclerc – TEX – LHP (48%)

0 W, 4 SV, 0.00 ERA, 0.25 WHIP, 8 K / 4 IP                      

Season Stats: (48 G) 2 W, 5 SV, 1.93 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, 68 K / 20 BB in 46.2 IP

Leclerc should be owned in all leagues as the Rangers closer for the the remainder of the season. With a sub 2.00 ERA and sub 1.00 WHIP with an elite K rate Leclerc has top 10 closer upside.

 

  1. Wade Davis – COL – RHP (90%)

0 W, 3 SV, 0.00 ERA, 0.50 WHIP, 6 K / 4 IP

Season Stats: (56 G) 2 W, 35 SV, 4.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 59 K / 25 BB in 52.1 IP

 

  1. Matt Moore – TEX – LHP (1%)

2 W, 0 SV, 0.00 ERA, 0.33 WHIP, 4 K / 3 IP                      

Season Stats: (27 G) 3 W, 0 SV, 6.99 ERA, 1.74 WHIP, 69 K / 35 BB in 45.2 IP

 

  1. Blake Treinen – OAK – RHP (90%)

1 W, 2 SV, 0.00 ERA, 1.67 WHIP, 7 K / 3 IP                      

Season Stats: (52 G) 6 W, 32 SV, 0.87 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 86 K / 20 BB in 62 IP

 

  1. Jace Fry – CWS – LHP (5%)

0 W, 1 SV, 0.00 ERA, 0.27 WHIP, 8 K / 3.2 IP                      

Season Stats: (44 G) 1 W, 2 SV, 4.15 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 56 K / 15 BB in 39 IP

With Joakim Soria traded and Nate Jones still on the DL, Fry has a chance to claim the closing role for the remainder of the season. Fry has a strong walk rate and WHIP with a very high K per 9, his ERA should come down.

 

  1. Wily Peralta – KC – RHP (25%)

0 W, 2 SV, 0.00 ERA, 0.33 WHIP, 4 K / 3 IP                      

Season Stats: (22 G) 0 W, 8 SV, 3.48 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 21 K / 12 BB in 20.2 IP

Peralta has been surprisingly good as the Royals closer going 8-8 in save opportunities. Although his ERA and WHIP are high Peralta has a strong K / IP rate and low walk rate.

Closers are hard to find especially those that are SP eligible.

 

  1. Pedro Baez – LAD – RHP (1%)

1 W, 0 SV, 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP, 4 K / 3.1 IP                      

Season Stats: (39 G) 4 W, 0 SV, 3.79 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, 47 K / 18 BB in 47 IP

 

  1. Jalen Beeks – TB – RHP (1%)

1 W, 0 SV, 2.00 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, 11 K / 9 IP         

Season Stats (with TB): (5 G) 2 W, 0 SV, 5.24 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 19 K / 10 BB in 22.1 IP

 

  1. Trevor Hildenberger – MIN – RHP (20%)

1 W, 2 SV, 0.00 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 2 K / 3.1 IP         

Season Stats: (58 G) 3 W, 3 SV, 4.48 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 57 K / 20 BB in 60.1 IP

 

  1. David Hernandez – PHI – RHP (1%)

1 W, 0 SV, 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP, 3 K / 3 IP
