Fantasy Baseball Streaming Starters: Week 9
Jon Impemba highlights all of the top targets on the mound to stream for Week 9 of the MLB and fantasy baseball seasons.
Mike Soroka – Soroka is coming off a seven-inning shutout of the Cardinals in his last start and he gets to face them again this upcoming week with the only change being that this start will come on the road in St. Louis. Soroka has been remarkable for the Braves this season, having allowed just FOUR earned runs over six starts this season. That is correct, he has more starts than earned runs allowed on the year. Though he only had three strikeouts in his last start that hasn’t been the case for the majority of the season as his K/9 sits at 8.35, only going down because of his last outing. If there is a sign of regression it would be that he has yet to allow a home run on the season and that is pretty hard to maintain and his 3.44 BB/9 is high so the wrong combination of putting men on base and a well timed first HRA (home run allowed) could lead to a bad outing. For now however I am riding the hot streak, especially against a team he just shut down.
