2022 Fantasy Baseball Week 16 Waiver Wire

Welcome to the 2022 Fantasy Baseball Week 10 Pitching Planner.

Every Saturday of the MLB regular season, the Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner takes a look at the upcoming SP landscape for the week ahead. I will look to answer some of the questions regarding which hurlers to start, sit, or stream.

A ranking of low-owned (50% or less), two-start options that may be worthwhile acquiring off the waiver wire leads things off.

The first two guys have really made an impression on me so far on the young season. I highly recommend them if needed.

Start 'em

Luis Castillo (CIN) - at Arizona Diamondbacks

Castillo had a bit of a disappointing outing against the Nationals back on June 5, giving up five runs (three earned) on six hits and four walks across 6.1 innings. This past Friday however, he found his command in a solid rebound effort at St. Louis. 

Overall in his last five starts, Castillo has been performing like the front-of-the-rotation hurler he has been for most of his career. In that stretch, the 2019 All-Star has worked to a nice 2.45 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 246 K% while averaging nearly six innings per game. 

The Diamondbacks entered play Saturday as 1-of-7 MLB teams averaging less than four runs per game. Their offense is also 1-of-4 teams in the league striking out more than nine times per game. 

Spencer Strider (ATL) - at Washington Nationals

As you can see, Strider does not only feature triple-digit heat but also a wicked slider. The Braves rookie has been regularly making big-league hitters look silly this year, putting up a 36.8 K% and 15.7 SwStr% across 38.1 innings. 

After making his first 11 appearances of the season out of the Braves bullpen, Strider has now made three consecutive turns in the rotation, building up his pitch count along the way. He was brilliant in a 92-pitch performance Friday night versus the Pirates, surrendering only four hits and a walk while punching out eight across 5.2 scoreless frames. 

Sit' em

Roansy Contreras (PIT) - at St. Louis Cardinals

On the flip side of that rookie showcase on the mound in Atlanta this past Friday, Contreras ran into the streaking Braves. The youngster flamethrower could not make it through five full, as he was tagged for four runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk in 4.2 innings. 

Contreras did register seven strikeouts against the free-swinging Braves, bringing his K-rate to a strong 28.2-percent over 28.0 innings this season. The Cardinals typically whiff far less than the Braves and are sixth in the league in runs per game (4.69) at present. 

Contreras has really enjoyed pitching at home this season, as he has yet to allow an earned run through 13.2 innings in Pittsburgh. On the road, he currently carries a 5.02 ERA across 14.1 innings. 

Paul Blackburn (OAK) - at Boston Red Sox

Blackburn is having a sensational season overall. Following eight shutout innings in Cleveland on Friday, he now sports a 2.31 ERA and 1.01 WHIP through a dozen starts. Two starts ago, he labored through his weakest effort of the campaign in a home outing versus the Red Sox. 

In this week’s rematch, Blackburn will be in a much tougher environment at Fenway Park to battle the stout Red Sox lineup. The 28-year-old righty will also be coming off a season-high in pitches (101). This is one to avoid, particularly with a pitcher that features just a 17.9 K% going up against a high-contact, high-powered offense. 

Stream 'em

Cole Irvin (OAK) - vs Kansas City Royals

Irvin is set up for a much more favorable matchup this week than his rotation mate above. The 28-year-old lefty has been outstanding in Oakland’s pitcher-friendly environment so far this year, fashioning a 1.61 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and no home runs allowed across 28.0 innings.

The Royals 26th-ranked offense (3.82 runs per game) is packing very little punch. Regardless of how Irvin looks in Cleveland on Sunday, he is a prime streaming option for those searching for solid ratios and win potential.
