Wednesday is a getaway day for many Major League teams meaning several of the midweek games get started in the afternoon, so you’ll need to make your fantasy baseball moves early and get your roster set by 12:35 with the Reds and Red Sox get a full 15-game slate underway.
If one of the things you need to add is a starting pitcher, there are several options to consider depending on what you need and how much risk you can afford. To help you make the right choice, check out my starting pitching pickups each afternoon here on Fansided (archive and new posts show up here). All my options are always available in at least half of ESPN leagues, but they’ve been producing nicely so far this month. Through Monday’s games, my August selections are 17-7 with a 3.28 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and a 7.88 K/9 rate.
These are the widely available options to check out for Wednesday’s starts:
32.7% owned, vs Detroit Tigers
35.4% owned, vs Washington Nationals
13.8% owned, vs St. Louis Cardinals
17.5% owned, @ Baltimore Orioles
