Wednesday Starting Pitcher Streaming Options (08/29/18)

Trevor Cahill – OAK – RHP (43%) @ HOU

Season Stats (16 GS) 5 W, 3.44 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 87 K/ 27 BB in 91 IP

Cahill has maintained a great K ratio alongside his ground ball rate over 50% all season. He’s had continued success whenever he has been healthy. Even his peripherals support a mid 3s ERA while suggesting he’s hasn’t been extremely lucky. Houston can be especially daunting of a matchup, and now that they will be expecting most of their stars back in the lineup, you might have some trepidation. But keep in mind the most Cahill has given up against the Astros this season is 3 runs, and the last time out he went 7 shutout innings with 7 strikeouts. He should be a solid play for Ks, ratios and and a good chance of the win for the scorching hot Athletics.

(The Astros rank 23rd in the league with a .243 AVG and 20th in the league with a .720 OPS at home this season. They also rank 19th in the league with a .245 AVG and 12th in the league with a .734 OPS vs RHP).

Michael Fulmer – DET – RHP (42%) @ KC

Season Stats (20 GS) 3 W, 4.32 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 97 K/ 39 BB in 116 IP

Fulmer was sidelined for some time with an oblique injury but returned to start against the White Sox and went almost 5 scoreless innings. He’s had some really good stretches this season, as he did in 6 starts over a 40 inning stretch, striking out nearly a K an inning with a 2 BB/9 rate and a 3.10 ERA. Much more like the Michael Fulmer that we know he can be. Especially against the Royals offense he has a good shot to suppress runs with solid Ks along with a good chance at a win.

(The Royals rank 22nd in the league with a .246 AVG and 27th in the league with a .690 OPS at home this season. They also rank 21st in the league with a .245 AVG and 26th in the league with a .693 OPS vs RHP).
