We’re back for another edition of fantasy baseball streaming for the week of August 14th! The fantasy baseball playoffs are quickly approaching. This makes streaming two-start pitchers that much more important.
Here are three two-start pitchers that should help you win your matchup this week. We’ll be taking a look at one starting pitcher available in around 50% of leagues, one around 25% of leagues, and one for the deep leagues out there.

Fantasy Baseball Streaming: Three Underrostered Two-Start Pitchers (Week of Aug. 14)
Miles Mikolas (STL) – Monday vs. OAK, Saturday vs. NYM – 49% Rostered
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Miles Mikolas remains available in over half of leagues as we enter a week with two winnable matchups for the veteran righthander.
Mikolas has allowed just two earned runs across seven innings in each of his last two outings against the Twins and Rays. He’s racked up 12 strikeouts to just one walk in those 14 innings.
The Cardinals are -200 favorites on Monday against Oakland. You have to think that they’ll be favored — or at least a pick’em — against the lowly Mets this weekend.
Logan Allen (CLE) – Tuesday @ CIN, Sunday vs. DET – 28% Rostered
I left Logan Allen off of my list a few weeks ago, much to the chagrin of some commenters, and he picked up two losses while allowing nine earned runs in 13 innings. However, he bounced back in his last two outings with just three earned runs allowed in 11 innings.
Even with his two lackluster starts a few weeks ago, Allen has still allowed three earned runs or fewer in 13 of 17 starts.
I’ll take the risk with Allen this week, with his first start is in the bandbox that is Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. The Guardians should be solid favorites in Allen’s second start of the week.
Emerson Hancock (SEA) – Monday @ KC, Saturday @ HOU – 11% Rostered
The Seattle Mariners had another prospect make his MLB debut this season. Hancock held his own with two hits and one run allowed across five innings against the Padres. He’ll have an easier matchup on Tuesday in Kansas City.
In Hancock’s four starts at Double-A Arkansas before being called up, he allowed just four runs with 26 strikeouts and four walks across 25 innings. He should be able to get through five or six innings against the Royals with a handful of strikeouts.
