I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe 4th of July. Now that we have firmly entered the new month, we are officially in the second half of the baseball season. The days are getting shorter, and the football season is within a month.

We are entering the last full week of the baseball season before the All-Star game, which is the unofficial midway point of the season. But as we all know, once the All-Star game comes and goes, baseball is truly in the home stretch. After that, there are only a couple of weeks before the trade deadline, and August is staring everyone in the face.

For those of you still actively making moves, it’s important to look at teams woefully out of it. They tend to call up pitchers to see what they have for next year. If you are still streaming pitchers in and looking at the schedule to get those extra starts, those pitchers are the way to go.

You may not want to snag the first-time call-ups, but grab them after a pitcher has made a couple of successful starts and looks to have some promise. This week, there are three pitchers worth considering. After this, you won’t get the chance for a few weeks because there are no two start pitchers during All-Star we

Davis Daniel-Los Angeles Angels

The Angels have had the no.1 and no.2 players in the game for the last decade, in Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani, when they had both, and they have never been able to produce a winner. They now only have Trout again, a shell of his former self, unable to stay healthy. 

But regardless, this team is again playing for next year. They have not been able to put together a winning rotation consistently. They are trying to build it and are hoping Daniel can be a piece moving forward. In two starts, he’s thrown 13.1 innings, struck out 11, and given up only 11 hits. He has a miniscule 0.90 WHIP and a solid 2.70 ERA.  

He’s making two starts this upcoming week and is worth a pickup. And if you are in a keeper league, he’s potentially worth it for the long haul.

Christian Scott-New York Mets

The Mets have tried to go after the big-ticket pitchers like Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer. Both were busts, and both are gone. The team may be trying to build a team instead of buying one.

Part of that may be Scott. Although he hasn’t won in his six starts, he does have solid ratios. His ERA is an adequate 4.32, which will keep the team in most games. And his WHIP is a solid 1.14.

Mitchell Parker-Washington Nationals

Parker has been in the rotation for much of the season. In his 15 starts, he’s 5-4 with a 1.10 WHIP and 3.61 ERA. He will be facing St. Louis and Milwaukee this week.

He is a 24-year-old big lefty who will be part of the Nationals’ future. His strikeout ratio isn’t the best, at only 7.26k/9ip, but that figure should improve over time. With a nice sample size of 84 innings under his belt, he has shown fantastic control, walking less than two batters per nine innings.
