Fantasy Baseball: 5 Pitchers to Stream in Week 7

Struggling Giants righty Chris Stratton takes the bump for a pair of favorable matchups against the Reds and Rockies. Which other widely available arms can help fantasy owners in Week 7?

While 2017 has been immortalized as the year of power surge, 2018 is thus far characterized by a different sort of statistical spike: strikeouts. Through the first six weeks of the season, 30 qualified starters carry a strikeout rate of 25.0% or better, where only 19 starters sat at or above that mark at the end of 2017.

Sure, some wholesale regression could be in store over the balance of the current campaign, but as it stands now, many fantasy owners find themselves on the outside looking in at the strikeout boom. Fortunately for them, bulk strikeouts are probably the easiest statistic to pad through the waiver wire stream, and these five widely-available starters can help needy owners make up for lost time in Week 7.
