Today offers a full slate of Major League Baseball action with the first pitch scheduled for 4:05 and most of the action under the lights on what shapes up to be a beautiful summer Saturday night across much of the country. If you’re looking to bolster your fantasy baseball team with a starting pitching pickup from the waiver wire, there are some solid options to consider. Yesterday, my picks got the month off to a solid start striking out 20 in 23.2 innings and going 1-2 with a 3.83 ERA. My best performance came for Wei-Yin Chen who was my top pickup.
Here are my quick selections for today all of whom are available in at least 50% of ESPN leagues and scheduled to take the mound today. They’re listed in the general order I would pick them up, but as always, make sure you know your team needs and target the pitcher who is the right fit for your roster.
4-1, 2.54 ERA, @ Arizona Diamondbacks
2-0, 2.25 ERA, @ Baltimore Orioles
2-1, 3.28 ERA, @ Boston Red Sox
4-6, 5.51 ERA, vs Milwaukee Brewers
