Fantasy Baseball: Jose Quintana headlines Week 15 streaming options


Last week in my post for Week 14 streaming options, I touched on four starters that would be great plug-and-plays. If you started Jesse Hahn you were rewarded with five shutout innings and nine tasty strikeouts. Now that’s a nice ratio. Hahn’s ownership in Yahoo! leagues has since jumped to 46% so the window to grab him is closing quickly.

For the upcoming week I just don’t feel comfortable with a lot of the options, but here are three I’d roll with. In deeper leagues these guys are likely owned, so consider these streamers for standard leagues with Week 15 around the corner.

Jose Quintana (35% owned, Yahoo!)
Next start: July 10th @ Boston
Notes: Quintana brought his katana sword to Toronto last time out and sliced and diced the Jays over seven innings, allowing just three hits and striking out seven. Toronto is not a welcoming environment, yet Quintana has his best outing of the year.  He followed that gem up with 7.2 scoreless innings and 10 strikeouts against the Mariners today.  He’ll head to Fenway next week to take on the Red Sox, who’ve been downright awful.  They are  last in the AL in runs scored in June. This week they were swept by the Cubs at home. The Cubs!

Chris Young (14% owned)
Next start: July 7th vs Minnesota
Notes: Young had a nice night in Houston his last time out.  He went seven innings and struck out eight, a personal season high for strikeouts. His next start will come against the Twins, who roughed him up at Target Field last time, but he’ll be at home where he carries a 2.19 ERA and .178 BAA.

Jake Odorizzi (17% owned)
Next start: July 8th vs Kansas City
Notes: Jake didn’t get his eggs Odorizzi as ordered last week, but still got the win in 5+ innings. On the road he hasn’t been a safe play (6.10 ERA), but next week he’ll return to comfy Tropicana where he has a 2.70 ERA and 10.9 K/9. I like the strikeout potential enough to roll with him against his former team.
