Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: Nationals at Mets

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Washington Nationals (6-8) at New York Mets (8-11)

Thursday, August 12nd, 1:10 PM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Austin Voth (0-1, 1.80 ERA) vs LHP David Peterson (2-1, 3.78 ERA)

Either way, the Nationals are 2-3 in their last five games while the Mets have gone 3-2, so it's hard to trust either ballclub due to their inconsistencies. The pitching does not offer many enticing alternatives either, as David Peterson will get another chance to prove he belongs in an MLB rotation when facing Austin Voth and the Nats. Voth might be 0-1, but his 1.80 ERA has been solid thus far.
