Notes 
 Inject all of the Rich Hill into my veins. He's made for the short season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Civale is in the perfect organization to maximize his potential as a starter who doesn't have an overpowering fastball.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Hill is as predictable as they come nowadays. He'll give you outstanding innings with excellent strikeout numbers, but will top out at 135 innings and likely less. He'll likely be sidelined until June with his elbow injury but that may be just in time for the start of the season now. That should move Hill far up your draft boards, from afterthought to late-round sleeper.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Civale's stuff isn't particularly impressive, but he has a good minor league track record and had an impressive 10-start audition last year. He won't wow you with strikeouts, and his ERA is likely to be a run and a half higher than his 2.34 mark from 2019, but he should provide innings that help in AL-only leagues.
