Daily Fantasy Baseball Streamers - MLB Hitter, Pitcher Picks for 9/21/20

It's another manic Monday, so you know what time it is - it's time to dig deep and find some streamers. Today is a tough day for pitcher streamers, so we'll roll on a streaky Rangers' starter. We'll also pair a couple of Yankees and Marlins in favorable matchups.

When choosing my daily hitter streamers, I examine their platoon splits, lineup position, and pitching matchup. With pitchers, I account for the opposing lineup, team ballpark, and recent performance to help make my decision.

Each of my streamers will be rostered in between 0-40% of Yahoo leagues, with a mixed focus on both shallow and deeper formats. Today, I will be providing a streamer for each position, including two starting pitchers. Let’s take a look at the Monday slate and dig out some streamer gems to help you start off the week with a bang!

Hitter Streamers for 9/21 - Infielders

Asdrubal Cabrera (1B/2B/3B, WAS) vs. PHI 16% Rostered

It looks like Cabrera is starting to get hot, as he's gone 10-for-33 (.303) with five runs, three homers, and seven RBI in his last seven games. While he has a tough matchup against RHP Zach Wheeler, this is a streaky hitter who could be on the start of a nice stretch, so we'll stream him here.

Miguel Rojas (SS, MIA) @ ATL - 12% Rostered

Rojas has swung the bat well lately, going 9-for-28 (.321) with seven runs, two homers, and five RBI in his last eight games. He has a decent matchup against RHP Josh Tomlin, who has posted a 4.84 ERA and 9.6 SwStr% in 35.1 innings this season.

Garrett Cooper (1B/OF, MIA) @ ATL - 10% Rostered

Cooper has been a nice source of power lately, going 7-for-20 (.350) with seven runs, two homers, and five RBI in his last six games. Cooper has been a fixture in the three-hole, so he's a nice option as a low-rostered player hitting in the heart of the Marlins' lineup.

Daniel Vogelbach (1B, MIL) @ CIN 2% Rostered

We're digging deep with this stream, as Vogelbach is available in almost every league. He only plays against righties and he faces the struggling RHP Anthony DeSclafani here. Vogelbach has gone 8-for-17 (.471) with six runs, three homers, and nine RBI in his last four games.

 

Hitter Streamers for 9/21 - Outfielders

Brett Gardner (OF, NYY) 25% Rostered

Gardner has been red-hot of late, going 9-for-21 (.423) with seven runs, two homers, and five RBI in his last seven games. The Blue Jays' starter hasn't been posted yet, but we'll still go with Gardner hitting in the bandbox that is Sahlen Field. We need to exploit this struggling pitching staff right now with a share of the red-hot Yankee lineup.

Aaron Hicks (OF, NYY) 9% Rostered

Hicks makes for a nice pairing with Gardner hitting in this Yankee lineup in a favorable ballpark. Hicks has gone 6-for-23 (.261) with six runs, one home run, and one RBI in his last six games. He's mostly hit in the three-hole, which is a great spot to be in one of the hottest lineups in baseball.

Tyler O'Neill (OF, STL) @ KC 3% Rostered

O'Neill has flashed some power and speed lately, with two home runs, seven RBI, and one stolen base in his last seven games. He takes on the Royals in what should be a bullpen game, as probable starter RHP Carlos Hernandez has pitched between two and three innings in each of his three appearances this season. The Royals' bullpen is nothing to fear.

 

Pitcher Streamer for 9/21

Kyle Gibson (RHP, TEX) @ LAA - 10% Rostered

Gibson is the best pitcher streamer for tomorrow, coming off a dominant, complete-game shutout against the Astros, where he walked three and struck out nine. While he was struggling prior to that start, allowing five or more runs in four of his previous five turns, this is a streaky pitcher who we need to ride against the Angels. Simply put, it's a tough time of year to stream pitching and Gibson is the best of the bunch.
