- Shohei Ohtani (SP/U Angels)
- Freddie Freeman (1B Braves)
- Hanley Ramirez (U Red Sox)
- Yoenis Cespedes (OF Mets)

Lower Priced or Middle Tier Streamer Starting Pitchers to Target on 4-9-18:
- Jon Gray (SP Rockies) vs Padres (SP Clayton Richard). Gray had a lot of success vs the Padres and Clayton Richard has a bad history at Coors Field.
- Ben Lively (SP Phillies) vs Reds (SP Cody Reed). Reds bats are ice cold and Cody Reed is bound for AAA soon.
- Miles Mikolas (SP Cardinals) vs Brewers (SP Jhoulys Chacin). Chacin and the Brewers bats are struggling right now and Mikolas already beat the Brewers.
- Miguel Gonzalez (SP White Sox) vs the Rays (SP Chris Archer). This is a little bit of a stretch but Gonzalez throws a few gems a year and the weather will be cold so this could be one of Gonzalez’s gems this year. Rays finally scored some runs Sunday.
- Jakob Junis (SP Royals) vs Mariners (SP Felix Hernandez). Junis was a nice streamer in the 2nd half last year and dominated the Tigers in his 1st start. Felix Hernandez was hammered by a slumping Giants offense at the time.
Pitchers You SHOULD PICK UP Hitters against them on 4-9-18:
- Cody Reed (SP Reds) at Phillies (SP Ben Lively). Reed was atrocious last year and this is not a good matchup in what could be his 1st and last start of the year in the majors.
- Clayton Richard (SP Padres) at the Rockies (SP Jon Gray). Richard has a bad history vs the Rockies in general and especially at Coors Field.
