Friday May 2nd, 2014
After holding the A's to two hits on Sunday, Collin McHugh qualifies as an excellent streaming option vs. the Mariners.

Franklin Morales, Colorado Rockies -- Morales is admittedly a bit of a reach as a stream option, but hey, you're likely desperate if you're streaming, so hear me out. While Morales has had a few rough outings this year, he also put up a 13-inning stretch against the Padres and Giants in which he allowed two runs on nine hits while striking out 12. The Mets, Morales' opponent on Saturday, rank last in baseball in slugging percentage, 29th in OPS, 29th in wOBA and 29th in weighted runs created plus. In short, their offense has been bad this season, no matter how you measure it. They also have a strikeout rate of 24 percent, so Morales could rack up some whiffs on Saturday. You can do better than Morales when it comes to streaming this weekend, but if you need all the help you can get, he's a sneaky choice given the Mets' offensive struggles this year.
