Saturday is a jam-packed day for Major League Baseball with all 30 teams in action across the country and games going on all day long throughout the afternoon and into the evening and late night with some late West Coast games.

As you get ready to head into the weekend of fantasy baseball, make sure your roster’s ready to go especially in the starting pitching department.  Each afternoon, you can find some recommendations for starting pitchers to target on the waiver wire for either a long-term pickup or just a single start.

All of my selections are available in at least half of ESPN leagues and their ownership percentage is included in parentheses. For our full fantasy baseball coverage, click here, or you can click here for just our starting pitcher focus.

Here are my picks for Saturday’s games, and you can find my results so far this season on the final slide.

Nate Eovaldi-Miami Marlins (12.6%)

Eovaldi is our first three-time selection and is coming off a pair of solid outings in which he allowed a total of five runs and 12 hits over 13 innings while striking out 14 and walking just one.

He’ll look to continue his solid start against the Phillies Saturday night who have been struggling offensively.  Eovaldi’s strikeout rate is up his control issues appear to be under control, and he’s a nice addition to your team if you need a starting pitcher in almost all formats.  This will be Eovaldi’s first road start, but I think he will turn in another quality start.
