Fantasy Baseball Today: SP Streamer and Vulture Save(s) for Friday, July 30, 2021

Fantasy baseball… it’s dangerous to go alone.

SP Streamer:

It appears that I am late to the party for SP streamers today:

Fantasy Baseball Adds and Drops for July 30, 2021

However, some intriguing names remain available:

As you can see from the screenshot, this league uses Quality Starts rather than Wins. The focus is always on guys who can pitch a full six innings. While it’s dumb and arbitrary, gotta play by the rules.

  • Daniel Lynch was electric last time out vs. Detroit (8 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K), but @ Toronto is another beast. They just smoked ERod yesterday and I took that ERA/WHIP damage to the face…I said not in the face! Watch him deal again and I succumb to recency bias 🙄
  • Ross Stripling throws 4 pitches each over 14% of the time. Per Nick his secondary pitches aren’t clicking lately, so proceed with caution.
  • Vince Velasquez could absolutely blow up, but it’s freaking Pittsburgh… and he throws his curve, change, and slider each more than 12% of the time. If they Pirates trade Bryan Reynolds on Friday, I would start Velasquez.
  • Kolby Allard has a fantastic 4.9% BB rate, but has never thrown more than 6 IP this season.

I have spent way too much time on this. I just checked the league standings and my focus needs to be on saves for right now. I do have Kenley Jansen, Aroldis Chapman, Emmanuel Clase, and Ryan Pressly. Just acquired Jansen, but man they better get it together for the stretch run here.

Vulture Save opportunities!

  • The name comes from Closer Monkey. Gotta give credit where its due. They are the GOAT for daily moves leagues.
  • Fangraphs RosterResource – Closer Depth Chart. Fangraphs is probably the best website on the internet for baseball. I love it so much. This link will show pitch counts for each team’s bullpen over the past 6 days.
  • Pitcher List: Bullpen Depth Charts: Relievers To Stream
    • A fantastic resource with nearly the entire bullpen mentioned and notes, of course.

CHC: If Craig Kimbrel gets dealt, the pick is Rex Brothers or Dan Winkler.

WSH: Maybe Sam Clay?? Their entire bullpen has pitched a bunch lately. Maybe Kyle McGowin.

TB: Andrew Kittredge/Jeffrey Springs. I think one of these two will get the next save.
