Advertisement

Matt Bishop | April 15th, 2019

STREAMER OF THE WEEK (OWNED: 70% CBS, 35% YAHOO, 14% ESPN)

Trevor Richards (4/15 vs. CHC, 4/21 vs. WAS)

2.00 ERA 1.11 WHIP 9.0 K/9 in 18.0 IP

Trevor Richards may have a 5.0 BB/9, but he is currently sporting a 14.7% swinging strike rate (10th in MLB) and a 32.4% o-swing (29th in MLB), which is well above the league average of 29.3%. He also has a 68.2% contact rate, which is the 9th lowest in the league and has yielded 11, 13 and 18 swinging strikes in his last 3 starts. Opposing batters are currently hitting .088 against his changeup, which has resulted in a 23.3% swinging strike rate. Pair this with 2 struggling offenses in the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals, paired with a home pitchers park, Trevor Richards should be in for a solid Week 3.
