MLB Two Start Pitchers - Week 6 (May 8-14)


The first month of the season has flown by, and we are now entering May. The temperatures, and the bats, will start to heat up soon, so it's imperative to set yourself up with the best pitchers. Below are the pitchers who will be taking the hill twice this week so you can set the best lineup possible.

Note - For the streaming options, I have them in the order that I would personally pick them up. These are players that are likely owned in less than 50% of leagues and may be available in yours.

Definitions

Best of the Best: These are guys that if you have on your team, consider yourself blessed. 
I Would Play 'Em: Players that unless you only start a handful of SPs, should be in your lineup. 
Day"Stream" Believer: Good options to pick up and plug in your lineup this week. 
Puff Puff Pass: Don't let these guys get their spit on your blunt. Leave them on the wire.
