Sorry to have to post this article, but there are very few decent streaming options this week. Especially with the under 50% owned requirement. These six guys are all I could scrape up this weekend.

Kevin Correia MIN @ CLE Scott Kazmir
Lucas Harrell HOU vs DET Max Scherzer
Jeff Locke PIT vs WAS Stephen Strasburg
This is not great, but I see Correia as the ace of the Twins' staff so far this season. He's putting up a nice sub 2 ERA of late, with a 4:1 K/BB ratio over his last three starts. I am willing to ride out his hot streak, especially facing the Indians this weekend. On the other hand, I don't like the match up for Harrell much, but he could manage to continue to put up decent numbers, even against the Tigers. Harrell has been walking too many batters to have a good WHIP, but his other peripherals are OK. Don't rush out to grab him, but if you are desperate for stats, he could be of some limited use. I really hesitate to suggest Locke, since I just don't believe he is as good as he seems, but then again, I always suggest that you ride the hot hand whenever possible. A 13 innings scoreless string with 3 wins is nothing to sneeze at, so take the chance. Strasburg has not been sharp, and maybe you can benefit from his problems on the mound.

Corey Kluber CLE vs MIN Mike Pelfrey
Kevin Slowey MIA @ PHI Roy Halladay
Edinson Volquez SD vs ARI Ian Kennedy
Kluber is not exactly the first name you would pick off a list to stream, but his opponent is not intimidating, and he tends to throw strikes. All good things you want for a short time fill in. Slowey has impressed the heck out of me this season, pitching for a team in true rebuilding mode and without Stanton now, too. Even so, he does take the mound at Philly, and that is not exactly a pitcher's safe haven. Not exactly worried about the opponent on the hill, as Halladay is relearning how to pitch, and with the Philly offense being kind of stagnant, this is a decent option. Volquez at home is a good bet, as are most Padres SPs in Petco. Arizona can slap the ball around, but Volquez is a fair bet for a QS if not a W in this match up. I wish the K/BB ratio was better, but the peripherals are just OK for a streaming option. Use him with caution.
Good luck and godspeed in your fantasy endeavors. If you have any questions Starting Pitching, or about fantasy baseball in general, drop me a line at email@example.com and I will do my best to guide you. Just remember, the service is free and you get what you pay for.
