• Finally, Hector Santiago gave us five useful innings against the Tigers his last time out, allowing just one earned run on six hits, though he walked four batters. Santiago's true value as a stream option comes in his ability to miss bats. He has 119 strikeouts in 117.2 innings, and has fanned at least six batters in seven of his 12 starts since rejoining the rotation in early June. He'll take the mound Sunday against the Twins, and is your best streamable pitcher for the last day of the week.
