Elias starts Sunday against the Royals, a team that, unfortunately for him, doesn't strike out often. Their team-wide 15.4-percent strikeout rate is lowest in the majors. However, that climbs to 17.8 percent against lefties. They're hitting .256/.310/.366 overall and .232/.296/.312 against southpaws. Elias could stick on rosters in deep mixed leagues, but he should be considered a strong stream play across the board this weekend.
