Fantasy Focus: All Non-Drafted Team- Pitchers

Pitching is deeper than ever this year.  You can get good pitching late in drafts and several rosterable pitchers are going undrafted in many leagues.  If you have no innings limit in your league, these guys make good streaming options.  Here are some undrafted guys I find interesting:

Scott Feldman, Astros.  2013:  12 W, 132 K, 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 181.2 IP.   The W's may be harder to come by with that Astros lineup, but I always look for low WHIP's and he gives you that.

Rick Porcello, Tigers.  2013:  13 W, 142 K, 4.32 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 177 IP.  Porcello is an extreme groundball pitcher who should benefit greatly from the Tigers improved IF defense.  He also started to strike more people out in the second half last year.

Henderson Alvarez, Marlins.  2013:  5 W, 57 K, 3.59 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 102.2 IP.  Alvarez is an extreme contact pitchers who won't get you many K's and he has a pathetic lineup backing him up, so W's may be hard to come by.  Don't forget that WHIP is a category, though, and he has a great WHIP!

Nate Eovaldi, Marlins.  2013:  4 W, 78 K, 3.39 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, 106.1 IP.  Eovaldi is sort of the mirror image of Alvarez. He gets K's, but is going to have a higher WHIP.  He throws really hard and I like his upside.

Erasmo Ramirez, Mariners.  2013:  5 W,  57 K's, 4.98 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, 72.1 IP.  Ramirez was a big disappointment last year, mostly due to injuries.  He will be as high as the Mariners #3 starter this year and has pitched well in the spring.  A nice sleeper to draft late.
