Week 10 of the fantasy baseball season is set to begin. We’ve been into the 2022 MLB campaign for over 2 months and there hasn’t been a lack of excitement. From a fantasy baseball perspective, streaming pitchers has been critical to its success due to the absurd number of injuries suffered by star pitchers like Clayton Kershaw, Jacob deGrom, and Max Scherzer. Today we’re taking a look at the top two-start fantasy baseball pitcher streamers of week 10.
Rules: As always, these will be pitchers listed in 60 percent or fewer of the Yahoo Fantasy Baseball leagues. Each of these listed pitchers shall make two starts. However, it should be noted that teams sometimes change their scheduled starters, so keep that in mind.
Without further ado, let’s review the best fantasy baseball pitcher streamers of week 10.
Top Fantasy Baseball Week 10 Two Start Pitcher Streamers
Corey Kluber, TB, 53% of the list
Encounters: @NYY, @BAL
Corey Kluber has been quietly dominant lately. The veteran right-hander has made five consecutive starts with 3 earned runs or fewer. He also gets about 5 strikeouts per start during this period.
Will the matchup against the Yankees be difficult? Yes, but Kluber held New York in their last meeting with just 1 run earned for 6 innings. So he has shown the ability to contain the Yankees’ strong lineup. And then the Orioles matchup makes this two-start week absolutely worth it. Baltimore is a franchise in tatters at the moment and Kluber should be able to enjoy that.
Zach Eflin, PHI, 25% roster
Encounters: vs. MIA, @WSH
Zach Eflin has been incredibly inconsistent in his recent performances. He only went 4 innings against the Brewers on his last start, but knocked out the Angels over 8 innings in the start before that.
The fantasy baseball aspect that sets Eflin apart is his strikeout potential. Four starts ago, Eflin beat 12 Dodgers. He k’d 6 Angels hitter in his 8-inning excellent performance against the Halos.
So there’s not much reason to doubt Eflin against far worse lineups in the Marlins and Nationals.
Merrill Kelly, AZ, 43% of the list
Matchups: vs. CIN, vs. MIN
Merrill Kelly is a guy who has shown ace-like potential in the past.
After giving up 8 runs against the Dodgers on May 17, Kelly has not conceded more than 3 runs in any start since. Most recently, he turned a 6-inning jewel against the Reds in Cincinnati. Kelly didn’t allow a single run in the outing, striking a 5 for good measure.
Kelly gets another opportunity to compete against the Reds this week. Go ahead and risk it with Merrill Kelly.
Alex Wood, SF, 52% of the list
Matches: vs. KC, @PIT
Alex Wood is getting one of the friendliest fantasy baseball matches imaginable this week. Before a date with the lackluster Pirates in Pittsburgh, Wood is allowed to take on the downed royals at home to wrap up week 10.
Wood has done pretty well this season but has been plagued by a couple of blow-up outings. The left-hander has been reliable for the Giants for the most part and should be an excellent pitcher streamer this week.
Brady Singer, KC, 23% of the list
Encounters: @SF, @OAK
Brady Singer has been great since returning from injury, with the exception of a single disastrous game against the Astros. Despite that 7-run breakout, Singer has not allowed 3 runs in any other start. Also, he’s a guy who can get your 7 or 8 strikeouts while occasionally getting deep into games.
Singer gets the Giants and A’s this week. San Francisco has a capable offense but they’ve shown holes in their lineup lately. In the meantime, he should do well against the overwhelming A’s.
Good luck in Week 10 of the 2022 Fantasy Baseball Season!
