Fantasy baseball Weekend Primer: Stream Cashner, McAllister

• There aren't a ton of options for those of you in need of a streamable pitcher on Saturday. That's what happens when the likes of Yu Darvish, Matt Harvey, Max Scherzer, David Price, Jose Fernandez, Julio Teheran, Shelby Miller and Francisco Liriano all start on the same day. If you really need one, though, Wade Davis is probably your best bet. The Royals host the Nationals this week, who were largely quieted by the Cubs this week, outside of a nine-run output Wednesday. Davis' 5.43 ERA is ugly, but he has a 4.22 FIP and has fanned nearly eight batters per nine innings. He's a bit risky, but you probably don't really care about that if you're looking to stream a pitcher.
