2024 Fantasy Baseball Week 12 Weekend Streamers

2024 Fantasy Baseball Weekend Streamers (6/28-6/30)

Welcome to the 2024 Fantasy Baseball Week 12 Weekend Streamers. This week, we have 10 top pitchers to stream in Fantasy Baseball. These players are under-rostered and undervalued and are available on the waiver wire.

The players listed below are here to help fantasy baseball managers make intelligent decisions about picking up starting pitchers this weekend. It's tough to cipher through all available pitchers, and making the wrong choice is easy. The starting pitchers listed here are thoughtfully selected based on matchups, skill, statistics, and recent play.

We have four pitchers on Friday, two on Saturday, and four more on Sunday. For Friday, there are three youngsters and one veteran. One of the youngsters is making his second straight appearance as a 2024 Fantasy Baseball Weekend Streamer. Saturday is a thinner slate for the under-rostered players, so I had to dive deep to find these two. However, I am still comfortable with both of them and am actively targeting them. Sunday is my favorite group of players, and fantasy managers should be confident in adding any of them from the waiver wire.

Friday Streamers

Kyle Gibson, St. Louis Cardinals

Kyle Gibson is a shallow league option, as he has one of the highest roster percentages (31%) among all the 2024 Fantasy Baseball Weekend Streamers. He and the Cardinals are headed to Wrigley Field in Chicago to take on the divisional-rival Cubs this weekend. The Cardinals and the Cubs are seven games back from the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central.

Gibson is one of the most undervalued starting pitchers in Fantasy Baseball. He has a 3.76 ERA and averages just under six innings per game. His strikeout rate (21%) is below average, but Gibson makes up for it with his innings. The veteran has pitched at least 5.2 innings in three straight games. He also struck out at least six batters as well.

Gibson will compete for a quality start again, and he is worth a look in 10-team leagues. The Cubs have the ninth-most strikeouts (597) and rank 19th in OPS (.684).

Ryne Nelson, Arizona Diamondbacks

Ryne Nelson is having a dismal season thus far, but he is a weekend streaming candidate this week. He faces the Chicago White Sox at home on Friday. According to MLB.com, the White Sox have the second-worst OPS (.620) and second-fewest runs (99) in away games. Overall, in the last 15 days, they rank 16th in OPS (.698) and 20th in runs (50).

Nelson is pitching to a 5.96 ERA and 4.68 FIP in 11 games this season. His K/9 (5.79) is the sixth-lowest amongst pitchers with at least 50 innings. It's a tragedy of a season, to say the least, for Nelson.

This stream boils down to a lousy offense versus a bad pitcher, and this time around, I'm picking the pitcher. The White Sox struggle on the road and strike out plenty of times. I think Nelson can pitch at least five innings and earn a win.

Simeon Woods Richardson, Minnesota Twins

Simeon Woods Richardson is a 2024 Fantasy Baseball Weekend streamer for the second week in a row. Last week, he pitched 6.1 innings versus the Pittsburgh Pirates, striking out six batters. He allowed one run (Rowdy Tellez solo home run) and received the loss.

He faces the Oakland Athletics this week and is likely to dazzle again. The Athletics are a bottom-five offense in strikeouts, runs, and OPS (.664). They also have the second-worst batting average (.221) in baseball.

Woods Richardson is one of the top streamers this week.

Logan Allen, Cleveland Guardians

Logan Allen comes into the weekend with a 5.57 ERA and 5.49 FIP. His ERA is inflated after he allowed seven earned runs versus the Colorado Rockies and the Detroit Tigers. Allen's statistics would be much better if it weren't for these two appearances.

I'm not saying fantasy managers should forget about these two games, but we should forgive Allen. Let's move on. It happened, and it's in the past. It could happen again, but I guarantee it won't happen this week.

Allen and the Guardians will face off against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Blue Jays are a bottom-10 offense in OPS, runs, home runs, and stolen bases. The one thing they do well is not strike out. The lack of strikeouts limits Allen's value, but he will make up for it by keeping the Blue Jays off the board and putting himself in a position to win.

Saturday Streamers

DJ Herz, Washington Nationals

The Saturday slate is slim for starting pitchers to stream. One of the better options is rookie DJ Herz, who faces the Miami Marlins. Herz will be making his third appearance on Saturday.

He combined six earned runs across 8.1 innings through his first two career games. Herz also struck out eight batters. His FIP (4.58) and xFIP (5.38) are much better than his ERA (6.48). These numbers indicate that a better outing could be on the horizon for the rookie.

He's a risky streamer, but facing a weak Miami team bodes well for his value. The Marlins have the worst OPS (.607) and have scored the fewest runs in MLB while on the road.

Andre Pallante, St. Louis Cardinals

Andre Pallante has made three starts for the St. Louis Cardinals. Of these three games, he has just one bad outing. He allowed six earned runs in three innings versus the Houston Astros on June 4. Other than that, he combined for 11 shutout innings with 11 strikeouts. Pallante allowed just six hits and four walks in these two games as well.

The 25-year-old right-hander will face the Cubs on Saturday. As mentioned above with Gibson, the Cubs have the ninth most strikeouts and rank 19th in OPS this season.

Pallante is not yet a reliable streamer, but I am willing to add him this weekend.

Sunday Streamers

Miles Mikolas, St. Louis Cardinals

Miles Mikolas is the third St. Louis Cardinals pitcher to make this week's streamers list. He's thrown four straight quality starts, combining for 25 innings, 20 strikeouts, and eight earned runs.

This recent stretch has brought his season-long ERA (4.85), FIP (4.32), and xFIP (3.92) down considerably. Before this, he had a 5.77 ERA, 4.61 FIP, and 4.10 xFIP. He pitched 5.1 perfect innings and six no-hit innings in his most recent start. Unfortunately, he did not come away with the win.

Mikolas could be turning his season around, and I'm buying into him as a viable streaming option.

Mitchell Parker, Washington Nationals

Mitchell Parker fits the typical build of the other 2024 Fantasy Baseball Weekend Streamers. He has a below-average strikeout rate but makes up for it with his innings and ability to limit runs.

He has a 3.21 ERA, 6.71 K/9, and averages just under six innings per start. His 3.69 FIP and 3.97 xFIP indicate that he is pitching well, and his success should continue.

As mentioned with his teammate Herz, Parker will face the Miami Marlins, who are terrible on the road.

Chris Paddack, Minnesota Twins

Former top prospect Chris Paddack is having an up-and-down season. In one start, he allows seven earned runs; the next, he throws six shutout innings. He has been wildly inconsistent, making it hard to trust him in fantasy baseball.

Paddack is carrying a 4.79 ERA in his 13 starts. However, his 3.90 FIP and 3.74 xFIP show that he could be getting unlucky when he allows a lot of runs. Still, it can be hard to trust when the results are bad.

Paddack gets to face the Oakland Athletics this weekend. The Athletics have one of the worst offenses in baseball, and it should be a relatively easy outing.

One of my favorite things about Paddack is that his strikeout rate (21.7%) is one of the best among all the 2024 Fantasy Baseball Weekend Streamers. The strikeout rate helps push his value up higher.

Spencer Arrighetti, Houston Astros

Spencer Arrighetti is finding a home within the Houston Astros starting rotation. Now, it's time for him to find a home on fantasy rosters. He has elite strikeout potential, and his strikeout rate (25.5%) ranks in the 70th percentile, according to Baseball Savant. His ERA (5.33) may point to him struggling, but his FIP (3.83) and xFIP (4.06) tell me that his ERA may start to fall soon.

This weekend, Arrighetti faces the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers have the 11th most strikeouts and seventh fewest walks in MLB. Arrighetti's biggest flaw is the amount of walks he allows (4.99 per nine innings). Facing a team that strikes out a lot and hardly walks is perfect for the Astros rookie. On top of this, the Tigers are below average in terms of runs scored and OPS (.671).

I'm looking to stream Arrigheti this week, and if he does well, he will likely have a spot on my roster for now.
