Each fantasy league has its own personality. And for keeper and dynasty leagues, they can take on a life of their own, where league owners often know each other very well. Especially in those leagues, it can be tough to make trades…so the best and sometimes the only way to improve your team is through free agency.

What teams don’t realize is, that there is no shame in just making a solid trade to incrementally help your team. Not every move needs to be a home run. No one move will realistically gain you 10 wins or HRs, 50 runs, RBIs, or Ks. You need to make multiple baby steps and target your needs.

And often, in these well-established leagues, even the smallest deal can be excruciating to make…I’m currently trying to acquire Vinny Pasquantino because I need help at RBI, and it’s like pulling teeth…FREAKING VINNY PASQUANTINO!!! It’s not like I’m asking for Aaron Judge.

But in some cases, depending on how deep your league is, there may not be much help through free agency either. Thankfully, every week, there are at least a couple of starting pitchers to find who are making two starts who could help your team a little…again, baby steps.

This week, there are three starters making two starts that you should be able to acquire in your leagues who will help you. None of them will give you the splash you may be looking for, but all of them will gain you some Ks, the possibility of a couple of wins, and won’t kill your ratios.

Here they are:

Ben Lively, Cleveland Guardians:

 Lively has been pitching well since cracking the Guardians rotation. The Guardians are playing well, and the matchups are favorable for Lively. They are facing the Mets and Angels this week. Lively is making his seventh start on Monday and is currently 2-2. He’s thrown nearly a strikeout per inning with really solid ratios. He’s sitting with a 1.27 WHIP and 3.06 ERA.

Ryan Weathers, Miami Marlins:

 Miami is awful this season, and wins have been hard to come by. So even with two starts, Weathers may not get you a W, but he will help you everywhere else. In nine starts, he’s 2-4 with a 1.17 WHIP and 3.81 ERA. He faces the Brewers and Diamondbacks.

Mitchell Parker, Washington Nationals: 

Parker has made six starts this year and sports a 2-2 record with a fabulous 1.12 WHIP and 3.09 ERA. His two starts this week are at home against AL opponents, facing the Twins and Mariners.
