Fantasy Baseball Two-Start Pitchers: Week 3 (Jose Fernandez, Noah Syndergaard, & More)

Now, we're getting into the deeper portion of the rotations where it can be more difficult to find strong starters, but easier to find bargains in fantasy baseball. Here are your Week 3 probables...

Probable two-start pitchers:

Chase Anderson, MIL (@ MIN, vs. PHI)

Clay Buchholz, BOS (vs. TOR, @ HOU)

Matt Cain, SF (vs. ARI, vs. MIA)

Carlos Carrasco, CLE (vs. SEA, @ DET)

Adam Conley, MIA (vs. WAS, @ SF)

Rubby De La Rosa, ARI (@ SF, vs. PIT)

Jerad Eickhoff, PHI (vs. NYM, @ MIL)

Scott Feldman, HOU (@ TEX, vs. BOS)

Jose Fernandez, MIA (vs. WAS, @ SF)

Kendall Graveman, OAK (@ NYY, @ TOR)

Shane Greene, DET (@ KC, vs. CLE)

A.J. Griffin, TEX (vs. HOU, @ CWS)

Jason Hammel, CHC (@ STL, @ CIN)

J.A. Happ, TOR (@ BOS, vs. OAK)

Phil Hughes, MIN (vs. MIL, @ WAS)

Raisel Iglesias, CIN (vs. COL, vs. CHC)

Ubaldo Jimenez, BAL (vs. TOR, @ KC)

Joe Kelly, BOS (vs. TB, @ HOU)

John Lackey, CHC (@ STL, @ CIN)

Mat Latos, CWS (vs. LAA, vs. TEX)

Mike Leake, STL (vs. CHC, @ SD)

Francisco Liriano, PIT (@ SD, @ ARI)

Jordan Lyles, COL (@ CIN, vs. LAD)

Wade Miley, SEA (@ CLE, @ LAA)

Jake Peavy, SF (vs. ARI, vs. MIA)

Wily Peralta, MIL (@ MIN, vs. PHI)

Michael Pineda, NYY (vs. OAK, vs. TB)

Robbie Ray, ARI (@ SF, vs. PIT)

Colin Rea, SD (vs. PIT, vs. STL)

Tanner Roark, WAS (@ MIA, vs. MIN)

Carlos Rodon, CWS (vs. LAA, vs. TEX)

Ervin Santana, MIN (vs. MIL, @ WAS)

Hector Santiago, LAA (@ CWS, vs. SEA)

Matt Shoemaker, LAA (@ CWS, vs. SEA)

Alfredo Simon, CIN (vs. COL, vs. CHC)

Drew Smyly, TB (@ BOS, @ NYY)

Stephen Strasburg, WAS (@ MIA, vs. MIN)

Marcus Stroman, TOR (@ BAL, vs. OAK)

Noah Syndergaard, NYM (@ PHI, @ ATL)

Yordano Ventura, KC (vs. DET, vs. BAL)

Matt Wisler, ATL (vs. LAD, vs. NYM)

Alex Wood, LAD (@ ATL, @ COL)

Cream of the crop:

Jose Fernandez, MIA (vs. WAS, @ SF)

In his first start of 2016, Fernandez lost for the first time at home. His record at Marlins Park is now 17-1 with a 1.61 ERA. He'll look to get back to his winning ways when Washington travels to Miami. Fernandez is 3-0 and has a remarkable 0.98 ERA in six outings against the Nationals.

Noah Syndergaard, NYM (@ PHI, @ ATL)

After two starts, Syndergaard has tallied 21 strikeouts. This week, he'll will take on two teams who rank 28th and 29th this season in team batting average. Though both games are on the road, look for Thor to continue to lay the hammer down against his opponents.

Potential bargains:

Jerad Eickhoff, PHI (vs. NYM, @ MIL)

In his last outing, Eickhoff struck out nine Padres in seven innings of work. He shutout San Diego and earned the win. This week, he'll look to get his revenge against his first opponent, the Mets. On April 8th, New York scored two runs on five hits in five innings. Eickhoff only struck out three during that performance. As for his second start in Week 3, the Brewers have whiffed the sixth-highest amount in baseball (105 Ks).

Raisel Iglesias, CIN (vs. COL, vs. CHC)

This season, Iglesias has started in three games. Two of those outings were at home. His Reds won both contests. At home, Iglesias has a 2.31 ERA and has struck out 12 batters in 11.2 innings of action. Both of his games are in the GABP this week.

Avoid at all costs:

Alfredo Simon, CIN (vs. COL, vs. CHC)

While I'm promoting one Reds starting pitcher, I am strongly advising against the other. The Big Pasta has allowed eight earned runs in his last two outings (1.2 innings). On April 13th, Simon couldn't get out of the first inning against the Cubs (0.2 IP, 4 hits, 3 walks, and 5 ER).

Kendall Graveman, OAK (@ NYY, @ TOR)

While Graveman had two solid starts earlier this season (2.38 ERA), he has two tough tasks in Week 3. His A's head to New York and Toronto and face two strong offenses. When the Yankees and Blue Jays have been at home this season, they rank in the Top Ten among run producers.
