News

Thu, Mar 5th
 Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola is expected to remain away from the team until at least Thursday due to the flu, but he could return and start on Friday if the next few days go as planned, according to The Athletic's Meghan Montemurro.
Mike Maher
Mon, Mar 9th

Notes 
 Nola simply wasn't very good in 2019. His control took a major step back and batters consistently made better contact against him, particularly against his fastball. Whether it was an aberration for the youngster after two years of major growth, or whether perhaps Nola isn't as good as previously thought, is an open question. But given how drastically his control dipped, fantasy owners would be wise to give Nola somewhat of a pass for his 2019. He can't be drafted as an ace, but as a second starter? Go for it.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Darvish's season was a tale of two halves. He was utterly unplayable to begin the season, tallying a 1.56 WHIP through May and walking roughly six batters per nine innings. But Darvish pulled out of it and then some, walking only seven batters over his final 14 starts, during which he had a 2.95 ERA and 0.83 WHIP. Can you fully trust Darvish? Probably not? But should you expect him to pitch closer to his second half than his first? For sure.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Which Yu Darvish will we get? If if it second half 2019 Darvish, he will blow his ADP out of the water, if it is first half 2019 Darvish, he will be a big loss of investment. Honestly know way of knowing, just depends if you want to take the risk or not.
